    According to the figures, Minnesota is at $101.2 million, leaving $14.8 million.
    Notice how PFT doesn't link to any sources.
    Nor do they make note of any unrealized Likely To Be Earned Incentives, which, I read in an article yesterday, is actually added to the available cap, moving the bar from the current $116 million to something potentially much higher.

    I *believe* that Pat Williams has some ridiculous incentives that he did not reach for which the Vikings will get credits.
    I hope your right.
    Of course I'm right.

    Carrying over money to next season, which can be done regardless of when the extension was signed, is a method teams use to conserve unused salary cap space. In other words, if Williams fails to meet the criteria of what's been deemed a bogus "likely to be earned" incentive in his contract, Minnesota will get an additional $13.2 million in cap space above the scheduled $116 million cap for the 2008 season.
    Sounds like there's another $13.2 coming in the form of a credit.
    You gotta love Bryzasdifsdfski.

    The problem now is that there's a loophole in the rule. Because Williams, Wright and the Vikings waited until the season started, the union doesn't have a foundation to discipline Wright. Furthermore, the Vikings are already over the minimum cap for this season, which is 85.2 percent (roughly $93 million) of the $109 million salary cap.
    They are not paying Brzyinsdfksdflndski enough.
    Very interesting read Z.

    Quick question, does anyone know what the incentives were that Phat Pat didn't achieve?
    He sure had some pretty good stats and did make it to the Pro-bowl.

    They better pay Bryz more money.
    If not he will be a GM next year.
    Truth be told, I bet he and Scott are both on GM short lists.
    I'm sure it's something like Special-Teams Tackles.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I believe he actually has an incentive like if he makes over 10 receptions he gets more money.

    That would be deemed a "Not Likely To Be Earned" Incentive, because he's not an offensive player.

    Credits come from "Likely To Be Earned" Incentives that are not earned.

    Checking in from an undisclosed Twin Cities living room, we feel obliged to point out a subtlety of the NFL salary cap that annually confuses fans (and reporters). Namely, how did the Vikings go from having $14.8 million in salary cap space earlier this week to nearly $30 million today — a figure confirmed by VP of Player Personnel Rick Spielman at the scouting combine?
