lol, that is just a credit to our front office. Look at the top 10 in term of highest payroll. Outside of the Titans not many of those teams are having success this season and are still paying out the most in the league.

There are two ways to look at the higher spending teams.

1. You have teams highlighted by the Raiders who throw money at washed up or other marginally useful free agents, and

2. Teams like the Titans, Steelers, and Giants who have the problem of drafting too many good players and having to re-sign them to reflect their position as among the league's best. Hopefully this is where the Bucs are heading.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Not to mention VY is surely one of their higher paid guys and he's not playing.

So, we'll go ahead and determine that payroll doesn't seem to indicate success.

Young is actually the Titans 10th highest paid player

Do you factor in his signing bonus or just his base pay?   

Do you post that to be specific kind of an FYI or because you don't think that qualifies as "one of the higher paid guys"?

Bucs have the 10th lowest payroll, but the 2nd highest ticket prices in the NFL.   The only ratio that is worse than that is the Patriots which has the 3rd lowest payroll but the highest ticket prices in the NFL.   Now compare the fan base and ticket demand between the Patriots and the Bucs...   I dont know if anyone else noticed this, but the Bucs game that had the worst traffic this season leading into RJ was the pre season game vs New England.  And yes, I paid face value $395 PER TICKET for that game.  

I made a valid point.  now let the FL Native bashing begin

Yucc,

If the cap minimum is somewhere around $101Mil, how are so many teams under it?

Or the numbers posted are incorrect.

Which is it?

Imagine that Titans team with Cutler at QB for the next 10-15 years

That is with his signing bonus factored in as it is prorated over the length of his contract, the Titans have most of there money tied to the offensive line and defensive players.

Lot has to to with LTBE likely to be earned incentives, it is determined by the league that that count towards the cap, but if not reached gives a team the rollover effect to the next season.

The hard cap this season was $116,729,000.00 million But because so many teams used the LTBE loophole was  a reason for so many teams spending wildly this season and front loading the contract in the first three season.

Yucc,

So in realty the numbers are not a true representation. They are incomplete.
