    So is it like golf where the lowest score is good?

    hence the real reason why tannenbaum is gone. you can't spend a ton and get nothing in any business (except government) and keep your job.

    Tannenbaum (AND LET'S NOT FORGET ARI NISSIM!!!) crippled the organization with bloated, top-heavy contracts that are killing us now. I understand Rex has personnel say, but he did not sign these guys to the ridiculous contracts.

    The Jets will have 11 guys count at least $6.16 million toward the cap next season! 11! Granted, Pace, Scott, J. Smith and BT are four of them, but still. As a comparison, the Patriots have 3. And that is why they are good. Because they identify the guys they need to pay, give them smart contracts and use all that other $ for depth!

    Tanny thought 10 massive contracts was a smarter idea than building depth. That's on Tanny, not Rex.

    A lot of people think Rex is not good with personnel decisions, I disagree. It's just that there wasn't enough cap space to bring in the guys he likes.

    The $19.4 mil Jets CAP space on that list is misleading. Cause Jets only have 10 of the 22 starters signed to contracts. So the cupboard is really bare, for the draft and filling out the 53 man roster.

    Pretty sure that says -$19.4 million cap space, which isn't misleading. But from what I understand, we can release some bums and get to over $10 million in cap space.

    yeah we can do that. Maybe restructure a few. But even then, the $10 mill won't get us much. Wasn't Tanny supposed to be a whiz with the cap? ugh

    This. Now take away about $6M for our 7 draft picks and that tells me we will be able to fill a few holes via vet minimum contracts but it looks like we are going to have a ton of I drafted players filling out our roster.

    You're correct, there are negative numbers in there.

    This list is virtually useless as it doesnt take into account who are free agents and what money can be dumped from the cap.

    For example, baltimore is in a very difficult spot and here they are listed as having $15.7 in room

    These are just basic numbers, thats all

    Cincinnati $8.5M $55.1M
    Are any Bengals under contract for 2013?

    They have a TON of young talent.

    As for our situation - as a previous poster said - only 10 of 22 starters are under contract for 2013, and some of those starters you don't want to keep anyway.

    The cap situation is a mess no matter which way you slice it.

  14. #14
    Why isn't anyone from the Bengal front office a candidate for GM? They've got one of the youngest teams in football, have been to the playoffs 2 straight seasons, and have a ton of cap space.

    Its not rocket science people. You simply dump as many players as possible and acquire as many decent draft picks as possible for 3 straight years. Then you have a roster full of up and coming players with cheap contracts. If you can remain competitive during this process then you are way ahead of the game. The NFL is a young players league. Pick the right ones and you have a good team. Your the Patriots. Pick the wrong ones and your the Jags or the Raiders.

    You know what personnel guy in the league has experience in that? Dennis Hickey of the Tampa Bay Bucs. Give him a call "search firm."

    Exactly, without seeing how many players are under contract it is hard to determine what those numbers mean. As far as Baltimore goes, that 15 million will be used primarily for Flacco.

    The Bengals and Colts are in great situations, IF the Jets are entertaining any ideas of trading Revis, they should call Cinnci. They have 2 second round picks this year and a ton of cap space. If they add Revis to that front 7 they could be nasty.

    Um, it is more difficult than just dumping players. You have to field a team. If most of your players are free agents, you still have to sign replacements. You don't have enough draft picks and more than half won't hit anyway. You're going to have to go to the market and you get what you pay for and most times, you over pay for it.

    The Jets do have some cap problems.

    If 2013 is lost anyway, which it more than likely is, then no you don't go to the market. You acquire more draft picks and fill the holes by our current practice squad and free agent draft picks. Of course the team will suck, but using limited cap space to get free agents isn't going to change that either.

    They do have cap problems, everyone who argues otherwise is wrong. However, the -$20M number is overblown as it includes spend for Scott, Pace, and Smiths (Eric and Jason) alone, those 4 cuts on their own will save about $31M. There will be other cuts made and probably some moves with contracts if they cut Puhua and Tebow, they will save another $5.5M.

    Again, they have a lot of holes to fill, and not a lot of money, but it's not quite as dire as it looks on paper.

    The cap situation lightens considerably in 2014.
