The first year cap will only be about $1.5 mil but the team has spent $10.5 mil. The Texans for instance have often been under the salary cap and that with lots of dead money, but if you look at their payroll they have been near the top of the league.
To help illustrate this clicky, linky: Moneyball, NFL Style
