Based on a twit by Tom Curran who posted a snap shot of the proposed salary cap numbers for for 2011 through 2014 the cap would have been $114 million in 2011 and moved up by $7 million in each year there after.



Now, if everyone remembers a few months ago Pat Yasinskas guesstimated the 2011 cap would be in the range of $140-$150 million.

Based on 14 teams having committed over $100 million towards the 2011 cap already part of the problem with the NFLPA  and the owners would appear that there were going to be more then just a handful of veteran players being cut/released to make room for rookies and teams to effectively maneuver to get under the hard cap number.

So the Bucs who reportedly would have had nearly $60 million in cap room would appear to be in the $20 million range should the owners last offer have been excepted.

 

In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

I believe last year the buccs spend 80 million on players - with several contracts ending/FAs to be signed I would suspect 30-40 million would have been available I think Yuc.

From what I can find the 2009 floor was close to 114M

Cap #'s and real payroll are usually separate numbers....sometimes substantially.

Could you show me where you got that number - and whether it is a cap number or an expenditure number?
