    2007 Projected Salary Cap numbers

    http://www.askthecommish.com/salarycap/numbers.asp

    For the sake of this installment, we have designated teams that are less than $5M under the cap in RED. These are teams that have little money to sign free agents and may need to make cuts or restructure salaries in order to sign all of their draft picks. Teams in BLACK, which are between $5M and $20M under the cap, are teams that look to be in pretty good shape in terms of adding more veterans and signing all of their rookies without having to take drastic measures. Teams in GREEN are teams that are well under the cap and should have plenty of room to sign free agents and rookies. Note that for the first time in years, almost every team in is very good cap shape.

    With the latest extension to the CBA, the 2007 salary cap is approximately $109 M, which represents a nice increase over last year's $102 M figure. (Note that the cap was "just" $85.5 M in 2005, the final season prior to the CBA's extension.)

    Keep in mind that these numbers remain tentative -- and are changing on a daily basis. These "unofficial" figures are approximate as of January 3 , 2007.
    1
    San Francisco 49ers
    $42.1 M

    2
    Buffalo Bills
    $39.7 M


    3
    Arizona Cardinals
    $36.7 M

    4
    Tennessee Titans
    $36 M


    5
    Cleveland Browns
    $33.305M


    6
    St. Louis Rams
    $31.98 M


    7
    Minnesota Vikings
    $31.5 M



    8
    Jacksonville Jaguars
    $31 M

    9
    Cincinnati Bengals
    $28.8 M

    10
    NY Jets
    $28.455 M

    11
    Green Bay Packers
    $28.36 M

    12
    New England Patriots
    $26.98 M

    13
    Chicago Bears
    $26.9 M

    2007 CAP ROOM

    49ers:
    $38 million under

    Bills:
    $33 million under

    Titans:
    $33 million under

    Cardinals:
    $33 million under

    Browns:
    $29 million under

    Packers: $28 million under

    Patriots:
    $28 million under

    Saints:
    $27 million under

    Bears:
    $23 million under

    Rams:
    $23 million under

    Chargers:
    $22 million under

    Buccaneers: $21 million under

    Jaguars:
    $21 million under

    Bengals:
    $20 million under

    Jets:
    $20 million under

    Seahawks:
    $19 million under

    Cowboys:
    $18 million under

    Lions:
    $16 million under

    Vikings:
    $14 million under

    Giants:
    $14 million under

    Dolphins:
    $13 million under

    Texans:
    $10 million under

    Raiders:
    $8 million under

    Eagles:
    $8 million under

    Falcons: $8 million under

    Chiefs:
    $6 million under

    Broncos:
    $4 million under

    Colts: $2 million under

    Steelers: $300,000 under

    Redskins:
    $100,000 over

    Ravens:
    $1 million over

    Panthers:
    $2.5 million over

    According to PRT, there are three things effecting these numbers:
    The "official" numbers have not yet been adjusted by the league to reflect so-called "not likely to be earned" incentives that a player achieved in 2006.
    By definition, these payments do not count against a team's 2006 cap number.
    They hit the cap in 2007.

    Second, any "likely to be earned" incentives that were not met in 2006 result in a cap credit for 2007.
    Teams with surplus cap money in 2006 but no plans to use it often will insert such incentives that, although categorized as "likely to be earned" are as a practical matter not earned.
    Because these incentives count against the 2006 cap, the money carries over to the next year if the incentive is not earned.

    Third, any 2007 salary escalators triggered by players in 2006 are not yet reflected.
    If, for example, a player's 2007 salary based on his contract is $1 million but his performance numbers pushed his salary to $2 million for 2007 due to an escalator clause, that extra million has not yet been wiped off of the books for the purposes of the 2007 cap numbers.

    CAVEAT ON CAP NUMBERS
    pft.com

    A league source has contacted us regarding the accuracy of the cap numbers that we posted earlier today.
    Although those numbers currently are accurate, it turns out that the numbers are incomplete.

    Per the source, the current numbers do not reflect several key pieces of information that will reduce the cap room available as of March 1.

    First, the "official" numbers have not yet been adjusted by the league to reflect so-called "not likely to be earned" incentives that a player achieved in 2006.
    By definition, these payments do not count against a team's 2006 cap number.
    They hit the cap in 2007.

    A prime example in this regard is Jets quarterback Chad Pennington.
    With doubts swirling last year at this time regarding his ability to return to form, he slashed his salary for 2006 but remained in position to earn most if not all of it back through incentive payments.


    And he did.
    Those extra payments to Pennington will thus eat into the $20 million in cap room available to the Jets.

    Likewise, the $3 million bonus earned by Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers for making it to the Pro Bowl this year is not reflected.
    And that's bad news for Carolina, since without this extra charge the team is already $2.5 million over the $109 million limit.

    Second, any "likely to be earned" incentives that were not met in 2006 result in a cap credit for 2007.
    Teams with surplus cap money in 2006 but no plans to use it often will insert such incentives that, although categorized as "likely to be earned" are as a practical matter not earned.
    Because these incentives count against the 2006 cap, the money carries over to the next year if the incentive is not earned.

    Third, any 2007 salary escalators triggered by players in 2006 are not yet reflected.
    If, for example, a player's 2007 salary based on his contract is $1 million but his performance numbers pushed his salary to $2 million for 2007 due to an escalator clause, that extra million has not yet been wiped off of the books for the purposes of the 2007 cap numbers.

    Fourth, the Giants will get a cap credit from Tiki Barber's retirement, since his $4.15 million salary for 2007 is currently on the books, and thus reflected in the cap numbers.

    Why do the vikings have more cap space than any other team? Is there any way that we can use up that space by prepaying players money so we willl have more room next year?
    I wish they would make this simpler so that the fans can understand it. I also wish the salary cap in Madden was more accurate so I could figure it out.

    Re: 2007 Projected Salary Cap numbers

    I would assume that the intent is to spend a bit of it after the draft, camp, and first cuts start happening.
    ;D

    Always good to have a bit of spending cash in your pocket for emergencies.
    In this case when someone doesn't look as good on the field as they did in shorts or on paper.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
