Falcons 2014 Cap





Now that the season is over and we as Falcons fans are looking towards FA and the draft; let's talk CAP space. It is already being talked about and thrown around but I figured, why not start discussions on the matter? Here is where I am getting my numbers and here is what I see happening as far as what is on the roster now...

*Current CAP Number: $118,398,294

*Current Dead Money: Tyson Clabo - $3,100,000; Charles Mitchell - $50,836 (Total - $3,150,836)

The speculative, here is who I see retiring/being cut (letting walk) and what it will save:

*Tony Gonzalez (I am sad now) - $7,000,000 (dead money - $1,750,000)

*Asante Samuel - $4,500,000 (dead money - $750,000)

*Thomas DeCoud - $3,000,000 (dead money - $1,800,000)

*Stephen Nicholas - $2,000,000 (dead money - $2,000,000)

*Osi Umenyiora (this will depend on draft and defensive scheme) - $3,500,000 (dead money - $1,250,000)

The numbers after:

*$98,398,294 after player losses (who knows who could leave via FA)

*$10,700,836 in dead money

*$109,099,130 total committed after retire/release

*$126,300,000 is what this year’s cap will more than likely be

*$17,200,870 to spend on FA and draftees

This leaves the Falcons in some pretty good shape for resigning RW and adding a impactful FA or two (hopefully on the OL and FS, leaving the draft for the DL and adding depth). I would like to know what all of my fellow Falcoholics think, please, take it away...
