Exactly, Glen. It's why I've said before BB also adds in contingencies for the possibility of dead money, probably around 10 mil per, from the simple fact of injury OR the player being beaten out by a hungrier, younger and cheaper player.
But, the point is, that stuff is already built in to the budget.
Some people here don't get this. Like the Hernandez cap hit next year, while making it more difficutl simply not having that person here already paid for, won't hurt the team because BB is so good at finding and using talent here, while coaching it up.
If the choice is Woodhead or Blount, at this rate, I am going with Blount due to a need of skill set and the fact we have Vereen here anyway.
Budgets for 10M in dead money? Bwahahahaha
Too bad 2012 was 23M and 2013, 16.6 M. Guess he messed that up. BAD!!!
It's not hard for rookies to beat out pathetic draft picks and Fa's that suck.
This is your dead money, and that leaves ONLY enough money left to sign rookies and UDFA's and cheap retreads.. who will also be replaced, because most of them suck too. Vicious cycle!
The reason they are playing with an unheard of, 15 rookies and UDFA's is because the past years rookies and FA's sucked and there is no money left to pay anyone else because of all that DEAD money (40 F'n million from paying players no longer on the team, over two years,)
The only reason they even have a dime to spend is TB's constant restructures. FACT!
Learn the game
False. They;ve been decimated by injuries this year to key starters (mostly on D) and the scouting and drafts since 2010 have been outstanding.
We've already talked about this and everyone with a brain sees it.
The base has been built through the draft in a flat cap since 2011 (or 2010, really, sinice no one was spending in the uncapped year to avoid losing leverage in the lockout, minus stupid Washington and Dallas).
Brady is wildly overpaid as is Manning, Flacco, etc. Fact. So, he needed to restructure. It was a ridiculous contract to begin with....Brady was due for a new deal in the uncapped 2010, into 2011, in the middle of a lockout and that contract has actually now sabotaged other franchises, which is what makes this so funny. You're too stupid to see that.
Next, FAs and trendy names in FAs don't make a base of a team or win you SBs. NOs tried it, Philly just tried it, the Jets tried, etc, etc...What happened?
Baltimore, Detroit, NYGs, Steelers, GB Packers, etc, all had to pay their QBs and now are in a cap hell because their drafts and other salary allocation has been poor. This is a fact. All of those teams teetered around .500 or dropped below. Some have missed the postseason 2 years in a row in horrendous divisions. Hmm.
Our team loses almost it's entire starting Defensive front and have other All Pro injuries on offense (Vollmer, Gronk), and they go 12-4.
It's over. You lost. I won. Clear as day. I nailed the analysis years ago for the entire board to read, called the Jets debacle to the T, and here we are, with you still not getting it, which means your IQ is very low or you're just being belligerent to be belligerent.
The scouting, drafting and coaching of these younger players has been nothing short of outstanding in recent years, so any of the dead money here is not a factor to the overall team, as continuously proven.
Many of the FAs BB targeted in this time period have been strategic and helpful in some fashion, too. Crumpler, Warren, Donald Thomas, Andre Carter, Mark Anderson, Woodhead himself, now Sielver Siliga, Brandon Lloyd, Svitek, Tommy Kelly....All these names made the team and helped in various ways.
You're just a moron who wants Mario Williams and MIke Wallace here, so you can get that media reassurance your small brain needs, which is embarrassing for you as an adult.
Think about that. YOU HAVE TO have reassurance to feel good about anything and cannot think for yourself as an adult. THat's not only scary, it's pathetic.
