What I'd like to see, and maybe someone can start a new thread with this, is the list of prospective Free Agents both restricted and unrestricted for this coming off-season.
    Now that makes a lot more sense & explains the over the cap teams.

    I thought $30 mil was quite high cosidering the 3 signings we made during the season.

    I made the same mistake, singer. I had to look at it twice, and only then saw the time and date in small print at the top of the page.

    The NFL has the "hard" salary cap, which means you CANNOT exceed it. The NBA has a soft cap, which means you can exceed the salary cap in order to retain a player that was already on your team. MLB doesn't really have
    a cap, but they do have the luxury tax if they exceed a certain amount in salaries.

    You're right though. There is NO way we have more than 30 million dollars in cap room right now.

    I think we are in good shape.


    Thats why I was a little bothered by Childress saying he can get the job done without spending a little money in Free Agency.

    Singers, I believe that they operate the same way as the MLB.. In that if any team goes over the allowed salary cap, they get hit with a luxury tax that is usually a pretty high amount.. Don't quote me on that, but it might be worth looking into to see if those two teams got hit with a luxury tax this past season..
    There is no luxury tax in the NFL.
    Teams cannot exceed the cap.


    This list is out-of-date, as noted elsewhere.
    I think I heard PA say last week on KFAN that the Vikes have about $20million with the 2007 cap, and that includes the signings of EJ, Kevin Williams and Bryant McKinnie.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I think the list is out of date also. I saw in an article last week say we had 23 million in cap room.

    Thanks PPE for the Sig

    There is no thinking about it. The list is definitely outdated. If you check the source, the date that list was posted was March 10, 2006.

    There are a few other websites with really good salary cap information.


    They haven't updated there info yet but after the Super Bowl they will.


    Once they do, I will let you all know.....

    Um, pay attention! That list is almost a year old. It was before last years draft, before FA & before any offseason & season signings.

    It has absolutely no bearing on where we or any other team is right now.

    I'm still wondering why Cojo posted it.
    ???
