    enough for McNair to suck it all up :irked:

    now, if we were to trde Steve we'd be close to 25 - 30mil under

    enough to sign Arrington , Edge, Randle El, Peterson, get Hoppy back, etc

    Bet Wayne is POed right now.

    Only bad thing is this gives Wile E. Polian the ability to retain James if the coyote chooses. Keeps their legit chances going an additional season

    Still :coltssuk: always have always will, well at least since 2002 anyways.

    I guess the great thing is now with the new CBA contract, we will have more money under the cap. However, all the other teams will have extra money to spend just like the Titans. It still seems to be good news for the Titans.

    actually it's bad news for the Titans

    we were one of the few teams that were in good shape with the 94mil cap. Now with the 104mil cap, everyone will be able to swing ludicrous deals

    leaving us in the dust

    but ludicrous deals that will kill teams in the future.

    We were about $6M under before. Now it's about $16M. They could clear up a few more million if they wanted to by restructuring or by doing something with McNair.

    We'll have to see how the rookie salary structure changes (if it does). Before, I figured a $4.5M rookie cap (having already accounted for $1.88M of it). But it could go either way. They could have limited rooke contracts so guys aren't getting $20M signing bonuses anymore. Or the contracts could have stayed the same percentage wise but will now be even bigger because the cap is higher. We'll have to wat and see...

    Not really. Now we have some real money to spend in free agency.

    but then again, so does everyone else

    my point was that we were in better shape under the 94mil cap
    alot of teams were struggling to get under it
