    Minnesota Vikings
    Year Median salary Total Payroll

    2007 $ 769,000 $ 92,161,921

    2006 $ 751,430 $ 125,025,909

    2005 $ 596,160 $ 85,405,909

    2004 $ 642,000 $ 92,407,989

    2003 $ 680,500 $ 85,719,851

    2002 $ 551,125 $ 43,549,384

    2001 $ 477,000 $ 47,086,528

    2000 $ 546,900 $ 53,319,800
    I'm not positive, but it looks to me like this is players only...coaches' salaries not included?

    So, for three years, we operated at about half of our salary cap.
    Then, I'm guessing it was when we signed Winfield (03?) and Smoot (04?) and their entire signing bonus went into one year (as a roster bonus) that we look almost respectable before Red sells to Wilf and we get a real owner.

    Here's your reason from 2000.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Coaches and such are not included in the salary cap.

    2008 - Expected to be $116
    2007 - $109

    2006 - $100.2
    2005 - $85.5
    2004 - $80.5
    2003 - $75.1
    2002 - $71.1

    Half?
    You may want to look at what the cap actually was first.

    Here's your reason from 2000.
    Shoot...and people get bent out of shape about the escalating price of a ticket. Why do ticket prices go up year after year? Steve Hutchinson...Bryant McKinne, Pat & Kevin Williams extensions...its all part of the business. As long as you keep buying a ticket and watching on TV the market will go up and up and up until its so oversaturated that teams won't be able to afford player salaries. We are in the golden age of sports people, interest is at an all time high (money wise). When u pay for a ticket or watch TV you are paying Bryant McKinnie's salary (better ratings=bigger audience to market to=high demand for advertising spots=advertising costing more $=TV contracts for NFL teams escalating in value=high leverage for NFL teams when negotiating new contracts=more $ for NFL teams in the long run). Business is business...players compare contracts to other players of similar skill levels at that position. Dudes like Chad Johnson say "if Nate Burleson can get $49M, I should be able to get $100M cuz I'm twice as good as him."...nature of the beast.
