[QUOTE=Raider9175;4384137]It is when you consider how many teams have alot more than that to play with in freeagency. (Chiefs, Bengals, Broncos etc) Thats chump change that 7.7 million compare to those teams.[/QUOTE]
The teams who have a lot of cap space will end up spending a lot more to secure top free agents. The players will know they can go to team X and get paid 5 mil more a year because they are 50 mil under.

Teams with lower cap space will have to be more intelligent about the contracts they offer. The jets have been victims of free agency in the last couple of years (Pace and Scott IMO) because they had money to spend...
