I don't think that they added the cap room to us that we got when we traded Booger so we really have about 24 million under the cap.

Only middle of the pack is kind of depressing considering what we had to go thru to even get to this point.  How much would cutting Rice add?

Still I don't see us really being big players in FA this year.  A lot of the guys we want will either be too expensive like Clement/Samuel or be retained by their current team like Briggs/Justin Smith.

Here is what ESPN has us at regarding free agency:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Cap room: $15 million

The pressure is building on Jon Gruden. Ownership values his coaching, but the pressure is back on the Bucs to return to their winning ways. Age finally caught up to the defense last season. The Bucs plan to keep defensive end Simeon Rice, but they could release defensive linemen Ellis Wyms and Greg Spires if they don't restructure their contracts. They need to re-sign defensive end Dewayne White, who is a free agent. The most important decision will come at quarterback. The Bucs re-signed Chris Simms, but they may go after Jeff Garcia as insurance. The Bucs could cut right tackle Kenyatta Walker, but they also have to decide if they want Mike Alstott back.

Why all the discrepancy with our cap room?

I think we will have more money than we can wisely spend.

CAVEAT ON CAP NUMBERS

A league source has contacted us regarding the accuracy of the cap numbers that we posted earlier today.  Although those numbers currently are accurate, it turns out that the numbers are incomplete.

Per the source, the current numbers do not reflect several key pieces of information that will reduce the cap room available as of March 1.

First, the "official" numbers have not yet been adjusted by the league to reflect so-called "not likely to be earned" incentives that a player achieved in 2006.  By definition, these payments do not count against a team's 2006 cap number.  They hit the cap in 2007.

A prime example in this regard is Jets quarterback Chad Pennington.  With doubts swirling last year at this time regarding his ability to return to form, he slashed his salary for 2006 but remained in position to earn most if not all of it back through incentive payments. 

And he did.  Those extra payments to Pennington will thus eat into the $20 million in cap room available to the Jets.

Likewise, the $3 million bonus earned by Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers for making it to the Pro Bowl this year is not reflected.  And that's bad news for Carolina, since without this extra charge the team is already $2.5 million over the $109 million limit.

Second, any "likely to be earned" incentives that were not met in 2006 result in a cap credit for 2007.  Teams with surplus cap money in 2006 but no plans to use it often will insert such incentives that, although categorized as "likely to be earned" are as a practical matter not earned.  Because these incentives count against the 2006 cap, the money carries over to the next year if the incentive is not earned.

Third, any 2007 salary escalators triggered by players in 2006 are not yet reflected.  If, for example, a player's 2007 salary based on his contract is $1 million but his performance numbers pushed his salary to $2 million for 2007 due to an escalator clause, that extra million has not yet been wiped off of the books for the purposes of the 2007 cap numbers.

Fourth, the Giants will get a cap credit from Tiki Barber's retirement, since his $4.15 million salary for 2007 is currently on the books, and thus reflected in the cap numbers.

Oh, no wonder those cap numbers were so off.

Regardless, just the same old excuse for next year that Gruden can't win because we don't have the cap room!!
