They have to declare what they are going to do with that money sometime in December right? If they say they are going to roll it over to the following year, they cannot use it, right?
So last year, if they rolled it over, Owen Daniels would have been our back up QB & I doubt they would have let him play as a TE Wild Card weekend.
I'm not aware of any way for a team to spend money on a new contract between January and March and have it count for the previous league year. Future/reserve contracts signed during that time are made for the next season, which starts in March. Their cap hits will be added to the next year.

Cap carryover must be declared before the deadline, which is usually the end of February. If nothing is declared, then the money is not carried over for future use. The PFT report said the Texans and Chargers were the only teams in 2011 that did not carry over any money. If the Texans want to carryover this 2.4 million into 2013, they need to submit the paperwork before the end of this month. It will be interesting to see what they do, because we were cap strapped last year, and apparently 1 million wasn't worth the effort, so let's see if 2.4 million is.
