    Tyler Thigpen $42,000
    Chandler Williams $36,000

    TOTAL: $684,720


    Here are some potential Cap Casualties:

    WR Troy Williamson; has 2 yrs left, my numbers show no cap releif if cut before june 1st, but the team would save $910k after june 1st, not it could be more if the bonus he is due is indeed in a roster bonus, in which not giving it to him, would result in him being cut, and the money would be saved. But for 2008 the vikes save 910k and for 2009 they save over $1.4m. But it would prolly be more since he has roster bonuses due to him.

    S Dwight Smith; has 1 yr left, and if cut before march 1st, when he is due i beleive a 600k roster bonus, the team saves his entire 3.1m salary, since the roster bonuses if conitigent on him being on the team in march.

    QB Kelly Holcomb; saves the team $1.69m before march 1st, since he is due a 150k Roster Bonus.

    QB Brooks Bollinger; saves the team $1.2m if cutr before march when he is due a $250k Roster Bonus.

    TE Jeff Dugan; has 4 yrs left, and would save the team $625k after june 1st, but only around 65k before june 1st.

    DE Erasmus James; has 2yr's left, and had no Signng Bonus in his deal, so i thik they save most of his 2008 salary, they did give him a $4.91m OPtion Bonus last yr, which was pro rated, so the team would only eat the pro rated amount of $1.115m before june 1st, or $2.091m after june 1st

    Thank you.

    Something i forgot to mentoin was, i dont have full terms on Herrera and Kluwe's deals, im seraching, i found some info on rotoworld, hopefully when NFLPA.org is back up i can figure out Herrera and Kluwe's numbers.

    I also havent included in cap adjustment, meaning the cap credits that the vikes will have, like on Pat Williams deal.

    Also the only contract im not 100% sure on is Adrian Peterson's deal, since the terms(as in bonuses layout) wasnt announced.

    Some of those number look suspicious.
    For example I thought Kleinsasser restructured his contract... and I'm sure Peterson will earn much more with incentive bonuses and such.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Yeah, they do look somewhat suspicious, the thing is, ive taken information from varous articles, and from USAToday database, which is updated for 07, so ve calculated numbers, and this is what ive come up with, i know for a fact AP is wrong, but i dont have any info on bonus stucture.

    Never should have cut him. Instead we bring in crappy Kelly Holcomb instead of sticking with a young guy that has some potential.
