Also of note for gauging the cap space spread at the moment:

"The current projection is $17.4 million for next year, with the Dolphins already having an adjusted team salary of $91.6 million.

The problem is, the Dolphins will be in a market in which 16 teams will be more than $20 million under the cap, with at least seven of those -- Arizona, San Francisco, Tennessee, Minnesota, Buffalo, St. Louis and Green Bay -- $30 million or more under the $109 million cap."

Thanks for posting that.  I mentioned that there would be 16 teams with a very healthy cap situation a couple of months ago, but some disputed it.

The Bucs are in a great cap situation and will stand out more than these other teams who have roughly the same amount of money:

- Tax free state
- Sunshine, good weather all year long
- The new facility will be huge
- Stadium

Usually guys that hit FA are all about the money, so we don't have much of an advantage there.  The really good FA that will get plenty of offers will be looking for money and a chance to win championships, so we are up sh1t creek with those guys.

If they're about the money, the Bucs will have it. Look at the list of teams with money, they're all garbage like the Bucs this year. The Bucs have a chance to bounce back next year and I have no doubt FA's would love to play with this coaching staff.

The Bucs will probably be the eighth team with over $30 million to spend.

Pretty much, we're projected to be $26 million under at years end WITHOUT cutting any players. Now some have said that we'll release or trade Rice and possibly Kelly and Rice's cap number is over 10 mil for 2007, suffice it to say if we do cut him will be well over 30 million in time for the FA frenzy.

Good news is Arizona, San Francisco and Green Bay will never spend all their cap money
