Cap Space Left?
So lets work the cap here... these are rough numbers maybe someone can clean it up some...
if we were 40 mil under the cap
Ev Griff 8.5
Linval Joseph 6 mil
Cassell 5 mil
L Dean 1.1 mil
that leaves us with 19.4 left
figure 12 mil on role players and the draft
leaves us with 7.4 mil - is that enough for A Verner? we need a CB
we may be out of the running ...dont want to get into over blown contracts that carry years down the road because we have players like patterson and harrison that will need to sign ....
their thinking may be draft cb lb and qb ..in the draft ..joseph was a smaRT SIGNING YOUNG when his contract is up he will be 30....and he came cheaper than VERNER .
maybe we can land a Captain Munnerlyn... we got lucky last year with a CB in the draft. lets just sign one and be done with it. I got a good feeling Teddy Bridgwater is falling to 8 and you HAVE to make that pick if your the Vikings. Last time we took corners outside of round 1 it was Josh Robinson and Chrs Cook... yuck!
SIgn a CB, trade for Sproles, Draft Teddy Bridgwater, come back round 2 and draft a LB maybe a Kyle Van Noy,
man that would be an offseason. Are we really that lucky tho?
There are quite a few "role player" people out there that would turn problem positions into competent with a simple signing, and without breaking the cap bank.
With Zimmer involved, I am hoping he gets a couple of those players... I wonder if playing outside for the next 2 years is hurting us.
It says the 24 million is without the Munnerlyn and Joseph deals. So it's probably more like 15-16 mil left. Which is still very good.
I believe they will address another CB in the draft, so going after Rodgers-Cromarte or someone like that seems out of the question. I am guessing another OG or DL in free agency, possibly a backup RB.
