I did not find it on any site

With reports surfacing that the NFL will bump the cap by nearly $4 million from $123 million to $127 million in 2009, the Buccaneers are flush with nearly $70 million in available cap room with the start of free agency looming.

The team used what many describe as the LTBE loophole, to roll unused money over from 2008 to 2009. The cuts of Brooks, Dunn, Galloway, Hilliard and June saved the team 12.55 million in cap space for 2009. By adding the current cap numbers for Sims, Penn, A. Bryant and McCown together for 2009 you get a figure of 18.2385 million.

After computing the numbers, the Bucs currently stand at roughly 68.758 million in cap space once the free agency signing period opens.

With the salary cap floor being 87.6% of the total cap for 2009, not counting money's rolled over using the LTBE loophole. The Bucs will need to spend $111,252,000.00 million dollars this coming season. With the team hoovering around $63 million against the cap as of today, the Bucs still need to spend another $48.2 million to reach the salary cap floor or face league sanctioned fines.

They better make a splash or two.

It's pathetic to see your team struggling to hit the the cap FLOOR.

With the salary cap floor being 86.7% of the total cap for 2009, not counting money's rolled over using the LTBE loophole. The Bucs will need to spend $110,109,000.00 million dollars this coming season. With the team hoovering around $63 million against the cap as of today, the Bucs still need to spend another $48 million to reach the salary cap floor or face league sanctioned fines.

Yucc, the correct figures are 87.6 percent and $111,252,000 salary floor.

Yep, but that still leaves a crapload of money they need to spend to get up to the floor.

Look at it this way if the Bucs only spend the 48.2 million this season it still allows them 21 million in the bank to help sign the young offensive lineman if they keep improving, it is more like a rainy day fund for offensive lineman.

The Bucs will have no problem spending this money. They have until next February to do so.

If the cuuts from yesterday saved us 12.5 mil (620 reported it to be 9 mil, but we'll go with your figure), how do you ADD the current cap numbers of recently signed players and that figure goes from 12.5 to 18.2 mil? Shouldnt signing players take the number down from 12.5 to 6.5? I might be missing something, but I tihnk you subtracted the new deals from the cap instead of adding them to it.

I heard the Bucs were anywhere from 45-55 mil under the cap a couple months ago, we franchise Bryant for 9 mil and isgn a few other guys for about 6 mil that equals 15 mil spent already. Then you add the 4 mil from the bump in teh salary cap, to the 12.5 mil saved from the cuts yesterday, and we should be right back in teh area of 45-55 mil under the cap

Here is how I came up with the number, the team was at roughly 55 million in space after the signings of Bryant, McCown and Sims, then they cut Brooks, June, Dunn, Hilliard and Galloway netting them 12.55 million in space, which brings the total up to 67.55 million, then the team tendered Penn at 2.792 million, bringing the total down to 64.758 million, the league then added 4 million to the cap raising it from 123 million to 127 million, so you add the 4 million to the 64.758 and you get 68.758 million in room

If I recall correctly, didn't the Bucs go into the 2008 season pretty far beneath the "floor"?

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