    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?
    God, it's awesome being right.

    But if he was gonna be right about something, I am glad he was right in this area.
    Maybe it won't be as hard to find a FA now that we have a bit more money.

    It's pretty easy to be right when the article you are getting your info on, that you read beforehand, is 5 months old.

    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.

    Don't you mean Jason Cole was right last September?

    In terms of this thread and being the first to remember Pat Williams' Not "Likely To Be Earned" incentive, no.
