30 Chiefs $76,633,107
31 Jets $75,338,300
32 Bills $65,782,440

Maybe this is why Paterson still has a job. He spent $47 million less than the Patriots. I guess this just goes to prove that thr franchise is more concerned with profits than quality product.

Well, for the most part the saying is true. You get what you pay for.

Interesting. A higher payroll doesn't really guarantee anything.

so I dont get it. The cap was 100million and we spent $76 million and the hunts pocketed 24 million and fielded a shitty team? Is their a correlation that 3 of the worst teams in the NFL (chiefs, raiders, phins) were also in the bottom 5 in salary?

Browns, Steelers, Packers, Bucs, all seemed like pretty good teams to me, and the Panthers were shitiful.


The only correlation is that shitty management and player evaluation leads to a shitty team.

Somebody in the media needs to ask Clark some serious questions next week and why is he so cheap.

What I want to know is if the cap was $100 million why is half the league over that?

Signing Bonuses and certain Veteran's salaries don't count in real dollars against the cap.

Signing bonuses that were paid this year but pro-rated over the life of the contract for cap purposes.

So if a team signed a free agent last February and gave him a $10 mil signing bonus and a five year contract, the entire $10 mil was paid this year, contributing to the figures listed above, but only $2 mil goes against this year's cap.

Yeah, this just means that we didn't hand out any major contracts this year. Which isn't all that unusual; teams are usually up-and-down in that regard, year-to-year.

Guarantee you we'll be higher up that list next year with a top-5 draft pick, and being likely more active in free agency (depending on what's available, I haven't bothered to look...).

herm just said the other day that free agency wasn't gonna be a big thing this year.

build with the draft and use 2nd tier free agents to fill in.

He did say we wouldn't recognize any of the FA names. I'm not certain how to take that.

I think free agency the way it was in the 90's is slowly dying (or already dead) anyway. The best teams build from the inside and fill holes with FAs rather than what we've been doing as long as I've been paying attention to KC (circa '99), spending big money on aging vets from our own roster and elsewhere.

I dream of the day when we can make one big free agent signing and think "that's the piece we needed" a la Randy Moss instead of "holy shit, we need about 27 guys".
