12 teams with less cap room than us. Not too bad. Its good to see the donx and faiders in such great cap shape.

I though San Diego had more cap room, Brees must have taken a huge chunk of it.

Because of unachieved incentives the Chiefs have more then just the $85.5mil. I wounder if this figure is reflective of that difference?

I read on another site that the Chiefs are 2.2 mill under. If I have learned anything the last few years it is that cap seems to mean nothing. I don't worry about it anymore.

so tell me...

how are we gonna sign Surtain to a multiyear contract with a 12+ million dollar signing bonus with only 1.8 million under the cap and with the draft still to go?

6 years = 12+ signing bonus prorates to 2 million per year

7 years = 12+ = 1.72 per year

even the league minimum puts it over 2 million per year cap hit

I would have to agree. they always seem to wrk it out if there is a player they want, and the #'s that ESPN give us never seem right

No way we could release a player(Bartee) or rework some contracts(Warfield, Barber, McCleon).

which was my point basically

the chiefs can sign whomever they choose ... it's all up to how much money lamar hunt wants to risk.

there is a salary cap ... you eventually pay a price, but you can do just about anything you want short term.

we can trade for surtain ... sign sharper AND maybe Law later, if we REALLY want to.



how much do the chiefs want to win a super bowl?

how much do the chiefs want to win a super bowl?That's true to an extent, but I'm not sure how far you can REALLY go when you already have hugenormous contracts waiting to hit with Green, Gonzalez and Holmes, and to a lesser degree Barber, Shields and Warfield. Plus the future cap looks to be already 3/4 fried with the possible mass exodus of retirements in the next couple of years. So, I guess, theoretically I agree that the cap can be twisted a lot, but realistically speaking, I think we need to remember how much we'd already spent the last few years.

I'll say it again. The cap means nothing.

Example: Oakland

They were nearly 90 million over the cap if I remember correctly, just two seasons ago. They restructured, released a couple of nobody's, and were under with ease. Now they are back to signing Randy Moss (a guy I can't even afford in Madden), LaMont Jordan, Charles Woodson, Jerry Porter, and Rob Konrad. Not to mention last seasons acquisitions.

The cap means nothing. It's all about whether or not your owner wants to shell out the dough. All the cap does is put a very high ceiling on teams, nothing more.
