Do we have any cap room left to sign another CB....Ty Law or maybe Aaron Glenn when the Texans cut him loose?

I still think we could use another CB.

Vermeil said today there wasn't enough room to still go after Law.

I'm not sure. I doubt we have the money to sign Law or Glenn, wed probably have to get someone of less talent/ability. It wouldnt be until June 1st anyway.

no


the most we can hope for is a mid-tier wide linebacker if we continue to have health issues.

maybe a mid-tier wide receiver if we cut morton

The money is there. Carl is just being a cheap ass.

Not that I really care one way or the other about Law at this point, but Carl was saying late last week that it didn't look like we would be able to get Surtain before the draft.

I don't ever believe anything these guys say, because they are blowing smoke up our asses, as they should be.

Just reporting what was said. Wasn't saying it was true.

Exactly, its more of Carl's typical BS. Id love for us to make a run at Law. can you imagine Surtain, Law and Warfield as our CB's?? That would be pretty sweet. There are always ways around the salary cap. Just give the dude a nice signing bonus. Lamar and Carl are just being cheap.

If there are "always ways around the cap" and they are just being cheap, which team is is the Yankees of the NFL? Which team is not cheap and therefore has all the superstars on their team? Which team has found all the clever ways around the salary cap and is spending hundreds of millions of dollars so they are way better than everyone else?

Just wondering.

I'm not really sure we need Law now. He will cost us and I think Surtain and Warfield will be fine. Add in Sammy Knight and the winner of the Woods/Wesley battle for the other safety spot and I think we will be MUCH improved in the backfield without spending a lot of extra money on Law.

I don't think Carl and Lamar really care about winning.

Redskins, Raiders, the 49er's in the mid 1990's the Cowboys in the mid 1990's....Denver.

So, you're saying no one has done it since the mid-90s? What makes you think it's still possible, then?

Besides, wasn't the salary cap put in place in the mid-ninties? Wouldn't that make these teams not very good examples?

Weren't the 49ers fined for breaking salary cap rules?

Unless Law is damaged goods, then the Chiefs have a shot at picking him up on the cheap.

Glenn is being cut by the Texans? I would be very surprised if he didn't renegotiate and stay there. Very surprised.

CP mentioned the cap was capped to the max and he has to work hard just to get the draft choices signed after the Surtain deal .

I really dont see us going after Law. The Chiefs shelled out 50 million bucks for Surtain to get our bigtime cornerback.

Drafting Alphonso Hodge adds some depth beyond Mcleon and Sapp.


I really look for Ty Law to end up with the Steelers or the Jets.
