    Default Chiefs 2009 salary cap figures


    0 Not allowed!
    Not including rookie contracts for those rookies coming in from the 2009 draft, these players have contracts with the Chiefs NEXT season. If the trend continues, the estimated salary cap for 2009 is $121.8 million. These salary cap figures are based on the contracts that they sign. They are not factored in with their "Cap Hit." Usually, a player's "Cap Hit" is larger than their salary number.


    Albert, Branden- 493,750
    Barth, Connor- 385k
    Battle, Jackie- 460k
    Boone, Alfonso- 1.4mil
    Bowe, Dwayne- 460k
    Bradley, Mark- 620k
    Carnahan, Andrew- 385k
    Carr, Brandon-385k
    Charles, Jamaal- 385k
    Colclough, Ricardo- 620k
    Colquitt, Dustin- 900k
    Cottam, Brad- 385k
    Cox, Mike-385k
    Croyle, Brodie- 530K

    Gray, Quinn-750k
    Hali, Tamba-940k
    Huard, Damon-2mil
    Johnson, Derrick-1mil
    Johnson, Larry-4.5mil

    Johnston, Brian-385k
    Leggett, Maurice-385k
    Macklin, David- 745k
    McBride, Turk-460k
    McIntosh, Damion-2.1mil
    Merritt, Mike-385k
    Morgan, DaJuan-385k
    Pollard, Bernard-530k
    Richardson, Barry-385k
    Robinson, Kevin-385k
    Smith, Kolby-460k
    Smith, Wade-620k
    Studebaker, Andy-385k
    Surtain, Pat-7mil
    Taylor, Herb-460k
    Thigpen, Tyler-460K
    Tyler, Demarcus-460k
    Washington, Tavares-385k
    Waters, Brian- 3.6mil
    Williams, Demario-1mil


    Total committed salary for the 2009 season is:
    $51,743,750

    Not including the "cap hit" figures and signing bonuses for rookies, the Chiefs will have somewhere around $65 million in cap room to play with. The bargaining agreement requires teams to spend AT LEAST 86% of their salary cap. That figure comes out to be roughly $99.76 million if the cap est. is correct. "Cap Hit" numbers and signing bonuses with eat up a big portion of the $40 million the Chiefs have to spend, but that still leaves a big number for the Chiefs to make up just to get in compliance with the NFL/NFLPA agreement.

    Some names the Chiefs will have to look at just from their own crop of free agents, will be:
    Jason Babin- Starting DE
    Rocky Boiman- Starting LB
    Adrian Jones- Backup OG
    Jon McGraw- Backup S
    Rudy Niswanger- Starting C
    Jarrad Page- Starting S
    Pat Thomas- Backup LB
    Jeff Webb- WR

    Just from that list, you're looking at having to either re-sign or replace 4 or 5 starters to go along with the holes we already have.

    Let's say we let all our free agents walk. What are we left with?

    Defense:
    LE- OPEN
    LT- Tyler
    RT- Dorsey
    RE- Hali
    LOLB- OPEN
    MLB- OPEN
    ROLB- D. Johnson
    LCB- Carr/Leggett
    RCB- Flowers
    SS- Pollard
    FS- OPEN

    Offense:
    WR- Bowe
    LT- Albert/Taylor/OPEN
    LG- Waters/OPEN
    C- OPEN/Waters
    RG- OPEN/Albert
    RT- OPEN/Taylor/Albert
    TE- Gonzo/Cottam
    WR- Bradley
    QB- Thigpen/OPEN
    FB- Cox
    RB- Johnson/Charles

    Special
    K-Barth
    P-Colquitt
    KR-Robinson/Charles

    That leaves us with potentially 4 holes on defense and 3 holes on offense if we go with Thigpen. 7 holes to fill with either the guys we have, free agents or the 2009 draft class.

    To recap, we'll have roughly $25-35 million in cap space. We're going to be drafting in the top 5 in April. We will have a new GM. We will have 7 holes to fill.

    On offense, we're going to need a:
    Center
    OG and/or
    OT

    On defense, we're going to need a:
    DE
    OLB
    MLB
    S



    You are the new GM. Go have fun.

You would have to look at every one of their contracts (the actual annual breakdown, not just the total) And then figure out how much has already been paid and what hasn't. Most deals are "back loaded" meaning that the majority of the salary is played later, which is why releasing a new contract player is so devastating. Then you would take their signing bonus figure and divide that into the number of years they signed for originally. Once you had that number than you would multiply that by how many years were left. Then add that number to your hit. You might have done all that, If you did, Im a little worried, but more power to ya! This is just the beginning. What kind of Incentive payments did your released players have?Where they likely to be earned or unlikely to be earned. Those are real terms JM. Were they already earned and how did that break down over the remainder of the contract. You can pay for those after this season also. What about all the players that you re-signed? How much did you pay them, what was the breakdown and what was their signing bonus? Thats gonna change your cap room too. Thanx for the lesson.

    PS- You'll know when I'm tryin' to insult you! :fighting0087:
    No problem. If you want to know further about the difference between cap hits and actual salaries, let me know and I'll teach you further.

    I'm glad you obviously read up on the subject between posts, and you now have rudimentary knowlegde of how the salary cap works.

    If you keep reading up on the subject, maybe one day you'll know what you're talking about.

    You are wrong about two things in particular:

    1. I never said that we should cut most of the past three drafts. I said we shouldn't resign them when their rookie contracts are up. The only guy I said to cut from any of our past three drafts is Croyle.

    2. If we get someone in demand (Polian, Pioli), we're not staying the course. If we get a CP lackey, we will. And if we get a CP lackey, we're going to keep losing.
    Hunt isn't going to hire somebody who doesn't agree with what the organization is doing. So, if Polian or Pioli are hired, they're going to have to agree with what has already been started. If they aren't hired, you're probably right about them. I realize you fail to see the success of the plan in place, but that really doesn't surprise me. Most people who don't know much about football can't see it either. You're not alone.

    Would you clarify what the plan in place is since you obviously know more than the rest of us?

    Rebuild through the draft is the plan that is in place. Hunt has said multiple times that he supports the "youth movement" as it has been dubbed.

    The removal of CP suggests that the plan in place is already being considered a failure.

    That might not be the case. But it definitely looks like it. When you start getting rid of management, especiallly when it is at the top, the statement is that things have gone wrong.

    The point JM, is that I laid out the only way that you could have succesfully calculated what your cap number would be if you made all of your stupid moves. Considering that you didnt do all that, your calculation is purely fictional as usual.

    However, as a GM wouldn't you want control of football operations, meaning evaluating every player and every coach. If the new GM is being brought in to follow through with what Carl and Herm are doing, then Carl resigning is a relatively moot point. I am gonna have to agree with others on the board, the resignation of Carl is a huge sign that Clark is not happy with the current situation no matter how you want to sugar coat the youth thing. A new GM means a new direction, then why hire somebody if Clark wants to follow the design that Carl and Herm have laid out. If in fact Clark wants to stay the course he should just be the GM or give Herm both titles of GM/HC.

    It's been said by Hunt that the decision was made for CP to retire earlier this season, perhaps even as early as this past summer. His contract ended after the 2009 season which would have rendered him a lame duck this off season. You don't want your team seeing the decisions being made for the future by a guy who wouldn't be there the following year. You NEVER want a lame duck running any kind of organization.

    In normal circumstances, I would agree that a change at GM would indicate a perceived sense of failure by ownership. Just not in this case IMO. Hunt seems to endorse everything Herm believes. If ANYTHING, I would say Carl didn't like that plan and expressed this vehemently to Hunt. I think that is what ultimately led to his demise. Peterson wanted to sign crappy free agents like he always had and the ownership and coaching wanted to go in another direction.

    The more I read about the situation and the more I listen to Hunt speak about Peterson's resignation, the more I believe this is closer to how things went down.

    I agree with you completly Texas. Earlier in the season I heard that Clark had taken a real liking to Herm and alot of people inside felt that Carl was feeling stepped on by Herm. I actually wrote a thread about this a couple of months ago.

    I think the point that everyone is missing is that every team builds through the draft. No mater who becomes the GM, the team will continue to build through the draft.

    However, young free agents can help the youth movement as well because they could be an instant star unlike a rookie.

    As far as Herm's job goes, we will find out if his job is safe depending on who Hunt hires.
