SALARY-CAP ADJUSTMENTS
Finally, the salary-cap adjustments have been made and teams know how much space they have. The salary cap was set at $109 million per team but adjustments for each team had to be made for incentives earned and not earned.

If a team had been charged in the 2006 salary cap for a likely-to-be-earned incentive and the player never earned that incentive, then the club gets the salary-cap space back in 2007. With that in mind, the teams with the most adjusted space are Minnesota ($118 million), Kansas City ($117.5 million), Jacksonville ($117.5 million), New Orleans ($115.5 million), and Cleveland ($115.4 million).

On the other side of the coin, teams that had not-likely-to-be-earned incentives that didn't count against the 2006 cap but were earned by players during the 2006 season adjusts the 2007 cap down from $109 million. Teams seeing their cap space shrink include Tennessee ($105.4 million), the Jets ($105.8 million), Miami ($106.3 million), Pittsburgh ($106.3 million), and San Diego ($106.4 million).

It's not a bad thing, especially if a player produced more than expected. However, it does take upward of $4 million of the 2007 space away from a team's effort to compete this season.

Very interesting, I was not aware of this. More space for potential draft picks/free agents.

CP should go ahead and take that and use it to sign Allen long term. He has the leverage now since JA will miss the first 4 games....but after next year there won't be any leverage.

Minnesota and KC always seem to lead the league in this.

If I was a Chiefs fan, that would just make me all the more depressed. It's not like they're going to spend it on anything.

Just because we aren't giving 15 million dollar signing bonuses to TEs that average 24 catches a season doesn't mean we aren't signing any free agents.

Anyways, I saw a cap report by John Clayton a few days ago, and it said that KC was something like 12 million under the cap now.

The entire offensive numbers were down. If the incentives were for stats then the entire offensive side of the ball missed thier incentives.

That's probably Roaf coming off the books.

If Trent leaves, we could have a shit ton on cap space.

Do you have any proof of this or are you just talking out of your butt? As far as I know, the Chiefs spend up to the cap every year. The Bengals spent the minimum for many years. Maybe you are thinking of them.

It wouldn't have anything at all to do with Roaf unless he had a "games played" incentive or something similar in his contract.
