    According to Sportrac.com the Bucs will have in the neighborhood of 91 million in available cap space. That’s good news compared to last off season. The Bad news is the Bucs have quite a few players to sign again or look for viable Free Agents to replace them.

    The majority of the offseason will be shaped by what the Bucs do with 2 players. Jameis Winston and Shaq Barrett! Arians has made it publically known he want Shaq back. On the flip side he has been less forthcoming about Winston.

    The Bucs could franchise Barrett and use the transition tag on Winston. That kind of move would consume between 45-50 million of the 91 million available. Not sure that is the smartest move using up over half you available cap space on 2 players. Other players need to be retained. How much do you pay Suh, JPP and possibly Nassib. Do you reward Godwin by extending his rookie deal now? All these above players will determine what the Bucs do in Free Agency.

    Now for the rest of the NFC South:
    ATLANTA- -2.8 MILLION.
    CAROLINA- +27 MILLION
    NEW ORLEANS- +4.8

    Atlanta has some work to do being in a negative position currently.
    Carolina has wiggle room and create more by moving on from Cam Newton
    New Orleans is in a tough position. Brees is a Free Agent. If he doesn’t retire then the Saints don’t have enough cap space to keep him and Bridgewater. Oh what to do in Nawlins?

    All in all it should be an interesting off season.

    91 mil goes quick if we start re-signing guys. We basically have no DL signed (except Vea) and no QB. Just doing those two things will kill most of that cap space.

    If I were the Bucs management I would sign Shaq before March 18 (start of the 2020 nfl season) and use the approx 7 million left in 2019 money as part of a bonus payment. have the contract include another bonus after the 2020 season starts. That way they would use less of 2020 money cap on Shaq allowing the Bucs to spend elsewhere.

    Need to do some kind of creative maneuvering. Especially if they want to bring back Jameis.

    According to Overthecap the saints will have 10 million and have Brees locked up through 2021.

    Bucs have to sign Shaq back. 19 sack guys are obviously hard to find and he will be paid well.

     

    I think Winston is also brought back but the contract will be very interesting. Personally hope it’s no longer than 2 years and that they look into drafting a developmental QB.

    Panthers will most likely cut Olsen and Poe to save cap space.

    Didn’t realize Andrus Peat is a FA for the Saints. That guy is good and can play RT or RG.

    Wonder if they decide to move on from Warford instead and save money. Either way there will be potentially good Saints cap cuts to be had.

    @Redrum

    Brees contract automatically voids itself on Mar 18, 2020. They created two mock years where he gets no salary to spread his signing bonus over 4 years instead of two. He is NOT under contract next year. They will have to negotiate a new contract to keep him.

    @TCB2W!

     

    Thanks for the info. It will be interesting to see how much Brees wants if the Saints don’t win the Superbowl this year.
