    Interesting.... Chris Kluwe, Visanthe Shiancoe, and Ben Leber are all making more than Adrian Peterson this year.

    I realize he's not on this list, but it's pretty crazy that Matt Ryan is going to be getting paid more than Tom Brady next year... then again, Matt Ryan isn't a cheat.

    The colts have Manning and Harrison in the top 8 for a total of 30.7million or 26% of the 116 million cap.
    Take the colts top 7 players:
    Manning, Harrison, bob sanders, robert mathis, reggie wayne, ryan diem, freeney and they are over 65 million, over half(56%) of their 53 man roster cap limit.
    The Vikings top 7 players: Berrian, Pat williams, McKinnie, Hutch, Birk, Winfield, Madieu Williams= 49million of 42% of the salary cap.
    Of course the numbers don't mean much because you have to look at the whole contract not just one year(Berrian and Madieu recieved signing bonuses which push their numbers forward while Allen is making more has a lower cap number this year)

    Re: 2008 Cap Numbers of Every Single NFL Player (non-rookies only)

    Thanks for the link.
    Interesting info.
    Kind of funny that B-Twice has the 15th highest cap number in the league this year, but his contract was designed to take the hit this year.
    His contract should look a lot better starting in 2009.

    There are also a couple of articles attached to this.
    Basically, two writers try to make the best 53-man roster while staying under the $116 million salary cap
    (intro, Bucky Brooks team, Michael Lombardi's team).


    They weren't allowed to have the same players, but even so a few of their choices left me scratching my head:

    1. Neither one took Adrian Peterson.
    This just seemed ridiculous to me, as his cap hit is under $2.5 million this year.
    Lombardi actually thought rookie Jon Stewart was a better value at $2 million, while Brooks had over $2.5 million in space left over so could chosen AD instead of, say, Selvin Young.

    2. Neither one took Randy Moss.
    Lombardi didn't much into the WR position, so maybe it's understandable.
    But Brooks chose Steve Smith, who actually has a higher cap hit than Moss this year.
    How is the talent even comparable?

    3. Lombardi selected Bryant McKinnie.
    McKinnie is maybe around the 10th best LT in the league.
    Even if you wanted a good run blocker you could do better at the price of $7.4 million.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]
