Thread: New Salary Cap Thread

    New Salary Cap Thread

    If the Bengals let AJ, S. Williams, & Ross walk & cut Hart, Geno, & Gio their net savings compared to last year’s cap would be $47.4 million


    With Dre, J. Miller, & P. Brown’s coming off & Dunlap’s decreasing, $11 million in dead money drops off


    That’s $58.4 million freed up

    They won't cut Gio.

    That shows shows what they are saving on guys this year vs what they paid them last year.

    I believe if they cut all those guys they’d be about 65M or so under the cap if the cap is at 175. If the cap is higher then obviously cap space will go up as well.

    Florio claimed about a month ago that the cap could still be closer to 195 especially on good vaccine news and the expectation they could have full stadiums come September.

    If it did go to around 195 and we made those cuts we would have about 85-90M in cap space. Which would be a very similar number to what we had last year if you factor in cutting Andy and some of the other moves we made.

    So not unreasonable to think we have a similar offseason to what we had last year as far as spending goes.

    Salary cap could be in the range of $180 million

    Every December, the NFL gives the 32 teams an idea regarding the expected salary cap for the coming league year. This year, that didn’t happen.
    It didn’t happen because the pandemic has caused revenue to crater, by dramatically reducing attendance at games. The NFL and NFL Players Association agreed in July that the cap for 2021 will go no lower than $175 million.
    That would be a $23.2 million drop, per team, in comparison to 2020.
    There has been talk that the cap won’t drop that low, and that it possibly could remain in the range of $195 million. The final number, however, will result from a negotiation between the NFL and the NFL Players Association. The players surely will want the cap to be as high as it can be. Multiple teams will want that, too, in order to avoid having to create the space necessary to comply with a $175 million spending limit.
    Plenty of owners, in contrast, don’t want to delay the full brunt of the impact of the 2020 losses. They view it as an interest-free loan to players. And that mentality would push the final number closer to $175 million.
    A league source with knowledge of the situation suggests that the salary cap could be in the range of $180 million.
    At that amount, things could get very ugly for plenty of teams and players. As the source characterized it, the commencement of the 2021 league year on March 17 will destroy the middle class of veteran free agents. Plenty of players will be cut or not re-signed.
    By way of example, a player like Ndamukong Suh, who was paid $7 million in 2020, will likely get something closer to $3 million in 2021. Many teams will be able to offer veterans only $1 million per year.
    The problem is that contracts always are negotiated with the understanding that the cap will keep going up by five to 10 percent. If it drops by roughly 15 percent this year, multiple teams will have major issues because they haven’t built their rosters with the possibility of a shrunken cap in mind.

    Gio may be the best pass blocker on the team, period. And contributes I so many other ways. I’d hate to see him cut.

    Though the NFL’s salary cap is not expected to be officially set until next month, league sources believe it will be roughly $180-$181 million. Throughout the past season, many expected it to be around $175 million, but it now is projected to come in slightly higher, per sources.

    On a $180.5M cap the franchise tag numbers should be


    QB- $24.828M
    WR- $15.808M
    CB- $14.895M
    LB- $14.630M
    DE- $14.530M
    DT- $13.736M
    OL- $13.602M
    S- $10.496M
    TE- $8.496M

    Yep he’s still got something as a player and the leadership/intangibles for sure.

    LaCanfora claims he's hearing buzz about the near certainty Bengals will tag Carl Lawson.

    Hope he's wrong....like he usually is.
