That would make a big free agent signing more difficult, but not impossible.

What?

Very few players make 9.2 million in one year.

Most "big" contracts have a 3-4 mill 1st year impact. $15 million deals are generally $1-2 million 1st year.

Wow, it's a good thing we got all those great players last year, because $9.2 million under is not enough to add any more.

That means we could've signed 2-3 stud free agents.

With the draft, we should maybe have enough for a decent FA.

I swear, if everything stays status quo after the draft, I will lie down on the floor and throw a temper tantrum. Watching this team the past few years has been like jumping off the Empire State building and landing on a bike with no seat.

Draft picks usually come at a set price. of that 9.2, we should only have a cap hit of (pure speculation) 4 million for the draft picks. So, yes , a free agent or a raise for LJ is certainly a good possibility.

Correction...

Watching this team since 96 has been like jumping off the Empire State building and landing on a bike with no seat.

For some odd reason, the chiefs organization thinks Huard in a decent backup. When Kilian gets back from Europe, I think we have are backups.

Remember this if this upcoming season turns into a repeat of the disaster that followed the Chiefs inactive 2004 offseason. I am sure Carl and his sex slave Rufus will try to use the "but we had no $$$ to spend" excuse.

Has nothing to do with the cap room........It has everything to do with Lamar Hunt not wanting to give out the big signing bonuses it takes to sign stud FA's.

Not even that.

Using the Rule of 51, a 2006 cap hit in the region of $2.4 to $3 million is more accurate.

Put simply, that sure isn't what stopped us from signing a "big name" free agent.

Some people either don't listen, or are just plain stupid.

IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW MUCH CAP ROOM WE HAVE.

This isn't about the cap...free agents cost CASH, up front, in the form of signing bonuses. Don't blame Carl -- Lamar is the one who doesn't want to spend money.

And second, the Chiefs aren't $9.2M under the cap anyway. Like the San Diego Tribune really knows.

It's true. It's all true. As much as I am an apologist for the Chiefs, I have to concede this point.

Peterson has come out and said several times that this is not a "CAP ROOM" problem, but a "CASH ROOM" problem. Meaning, of course, that Mr. Hunt simply does not want to spend a lot of cash every year on free agents.

I used to think that Mr. Hunt and Carl Peterson were frugal and wise -- the antithesis of Snyder in Washington. But now ... it seems that just as Snyder spends money regardless of the wisdom of it, we refuse to spend money every other year regardless of the wisdom of it. The Peterson Cash Savings Plan is inflexible and, thus, unwise.

after the new contract agreement was signed with the players union. For this year, teams could cut players imediately & have the cap hit spread over the next two years. Unless their contract says there is a bonus due, like Harrington, there will be no June 1st cuts this year

EDIT: after a quick search, I can find nothing to back this up. I thought I better find something after realizing Woods was still on the roster(unless he plans to retire & doesn't need the time to look for a new team)

the draft WILL NOT COST us 9.2 million


with only one 1st round pick ... and not a high one ... i imagine our rookie pool will be around 3.5 million (including casey printers)

careful ... you're talking out your ass again.

risking that oh so logical standing of yours. :rolleyes:



at this point we just don't know how much cap room we have ...... it could be 9.2 million ..... it could be 2.9 million.



but if you think back when we were under the cap and then they raised the cap 10 million. We didn't do much after that.


my best guess is around 6 or 7 million.

Yeah, I didn't word my response correctly.

What I meant to say is that the $9.2M number is bogus. It may end up being correct, but it's still a guess nonetheless.

And there's no risk to my logical standing at all. That comes from knowing what I'm talking about.

How much is an average contract worth?

KCTitus
04-24-2006, 12:29 PM
It never ceases to amaze me the utter lack of basic understanding of the accounting of cap 'dollars'. Cap 'dollars' are not actual cash sitting in a bank account ready to be spent, rather it's a budget item on a P/L sheet.

KCTitus
04-24-2006, 12:31 PM
How much is an average contract worth?

I'd guess whatever the guaranteed part of the contract is which is typically signing bonuses. Bottom line, it's hard to say until someone is released from a contract to know what he actually got out of the contract.

They better atleast use some of the extra cap room to absord some of the bad contracts they signed like fools. Guys like Jerome Woods and Eric Hicks need to go now......
