    The reality of an uncapped year

    The reality of an uncapped year
    Absence of salary cap in 2010 would curb, not increase, free-agent spending

    Unless the cap disappears for a good number of years, which I can't see the owners allowing to happen,I don't think it's going to make a vast difference.

    I would say less player movement will happen expect for some of the really expensive guys. I guess the redskins will try to buy another .500 season.

    Re:The reality of an uncapped year

    What a great read, thanks my friend.

    The NFL is about to take off its cap and find a bald-headed version of free agency.

    Fans probably aren't going to like it.
    I don't think the fans are the only ones that aren't gonna like it......

    Here are a few examples.

    In a normal year, the Broncos would have to put the franchise tag on linebacker Elvis Dumervil, which would cost them $9.68 million -- all guaranteed. Now, they can put a restricted tender on him for first- and third-round choices, meaning the Broncos would receive a first- and a third-round draft pick if another team signed him. It would cost Denver only $3.168 million, the amount of the tender, and the money wouldn't be guaranteed.

    Look at the situation with WR Brandon Marshall. If the Broncos franchised him during a normal year, it would cost them $9.521 million. Now, they can keep him for $3.168 million with a first- and third-round tender.
    How in the hell did the players union get themselves into this mess?
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
