Now that the calendar has turned to June, we are less than two months away from training camps openings across the league.

Effing Donks still have twice as much cap room as the Chiefs. After spending all that money. How the hell is THAT possible?!!!!!

A lot of signing bonuses/deferred money into future years.

When you see the money they are singing for, you're not seeing the cap hit they're taking that first year.

I am not a GM (obviously) but I surely hope this will come back to bite the donks in the butt down the road. Be nice to see them in "cap hell" for 2 or 3 years. Preferably right around the time they lose PM.

The problem is once they lose PM (unless it is from injury in the middle of the season) that will free up something like 20mil, which is more than most teams have in free cap space in one offseason.

WTF? I thought that after he passed his physical this spring most of the rest of his contract was guaranteed? Did I get it wrong again?

No I think you are right, but I am pretty sure if he retires, the Donks don't owe him anything, meaning they would have $20mil in extra cap space, since his contract is basically over. Hopefully I'm making sense.

Yup. Gotcha. Essentially the only way for the donks to save that cap space is if he retires. But then, I can't imagine him walking away from the $60 million or so remaining in this contract unless he were to get seriously hurt. Who in their right mind walks away from $60 million?
