The guaranteed spend forces every team to put up more than 90 percent of the salary cap in cash each season. A couple of weeks ago, the owners talked about having the guaranteed spend number at close to 100 percent of the salary cap, according to sources. That number and percentage could still be adjusted.

90% of $123mil would be close to $111 million. What's the cap for the bucs now? $58 million ish?

That's almost double the current cap amount.

The new CBA could have a provision in there to allow maybe a couple years to get to those numbers.  If not, teams like the Bucs and Chiefs would have to overpay for FA's.

The new CBA is suppose to be a 7-10 year deal..... so we can RELAX for a while :-)

Albert Breer is taking a dump on optimism on twitter. He's also saying he heard someone in the negotiations say "it's deadline time Wednesday". Hopefully this thing doesn't flutter for 6 more days just because it can.

It's been 120 something days at this point. and they have gone down to pretty much the week before camps start opening... Of COURSE they are going to drag it out for 6 more days!

So was the last one until the owners opted out of it.

They could front load the contracts. It would look nice to potential free agents if they got a big chunk right up front. It would cover the cap, and allow them to have free money down the road to resign guys.

I think first off we need to give Freeman a contract extension with a raise. Then protect him with top of the line free agent OL.

True enough, but  say if one team grabs ASO for large money, then Gaither or another big name linemen for pretty good money.  Then other teams will be under the gun to spend there money on lessor guys and overpay just cause they are being forced to by the rules.   It would be a travesty to see guys like Trueblood getting huge contracts because some team HAS to spend.

Not sure of the exact details, but players have to complete 2 or 3 years of a contract before they can renegotiate.  And they just picked up his 5th year option last year I believe.

So basically, the salary cap goes down and the percentage stays the same at what it would have been if the owners had not opted out. Depending on the finite language that the lawyers and league come up with nothing has really changed at this point. By the way 90% equals 110,700,00.00 million. It will be very interesting to see how the proposed 90% will be made up of. Will it be strictly cash paid out in a given year or like in the past when  numbers could be manipulated. Also what penalties will teams incur should they not reach the 90% threshold. Under the old system teams would be required to divvy up the amount they were under to rostered players.  So if it is actual cash the Bucs need to spend roughly 46,700,000.00 million to achieve the floor. Then one has to wonder about the old LTBE Loophole or any new loopholes that might come about depending on the verbiage in a new CBA.

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.
