I am just showing the correlation between draft failures and cap problems.
From 2006-2009 you drafted 7 defensive backs and spent a 3rd two 4th's, 5th two 6th's and a 7th on them. In 2010 rookies Kareem and Sherrick McManis. For all of those draft picks the only thing you had to show for it was Quin, McCain (sorta) and Kareem(?). So 5 years of drafting and you have nothing for DB's you have to spend big in free agency. (JJo) Big cap hit.
2007 Amobi Okoye busts, 2008 Frank Okam busts, 2009 you have to sign Antonio Smith because Anthony Weaver also didn't pan out. Big Cap hit.
People are talking like we drafted so well we can't keep all of our players, the reality is, we drafted poorly and stole other players. We could still have every player we drafted since 2006 on the roster under the cap plus Dre easily.
