I was looking at our salary cap and we have a problem.
Each individual team is required to spend a minimum of 89%, also known as the “cap floor.” When individual teams don’t meet the minimum team cash spending of 89%, a shortfall payment will be made directly to players who were on that roster for the applicable season.
By instituting a cap floor in a limited economy, the NFL ensures that all teams are at least spending the same amount on their payroll. Does this mean teams overpay for mediocre talent? Absolutely. But there’s a solution to that: scout better.
This is the problem Al had and I believe we will be in the same problem now because players do not want to come here. Lets face it Allen does not draw any top talent. We have too much money and will have to spend it. I don't think there is enough FA top talent that would come here for us to spend the money on. So what then the extra money gets divided up between the players on the roster. After we get whoever is willing to come here or who nobody else wants. This is the future of our off season. Just what I am observing. Everyone thinks its great we have so much money to spend its not it means we have no talent and there isn't enough of it in FA to fix our problems more 1 year contracts great player that will only play half a year because they are trying to get work next year. We are not in a great position at all don't you all get your hopes up for those top FAs when they get signed somewhere else.
