Default Re: Texans - 2.4 Million Cap Carryover for 2013

I thought this article concerning the Ravens salary cap was interesting & lends some perspective on our own situation.
Quote:
Under the rule of 51 that governs the offseason accounting for the salary cap, the Ravens are currently $7.207 million under the NFL salary-cap limit of $123 million.
This is already after losing Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Paul Kruegar, Anquan Boldin, Bernard Pollard, Billy Cundiff, Matt Birk, & Boobie Williams.
Quote:
The top 10 salary-cap figures on the roster are: 1. Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs ($13.02 million), 2. defensive tackle Haloti Ngata ($11.5 million), 3. Offensive guard Marshal Yanda ($7.45 million), 4. Quarterback Joe Flacco ($6.8 million), 5. Running back Ray Rice ($5.75 million), 6. Cornerback Lardarius Webb ($5.385 million), 7. Offensive tackle Michael Oher ($4.955 million), 8. Wide receiver Jacoby Jones ($4.9 million), 9. Fullback Vonta Leach ($4.33 million) and 10. Inside linebacker Jameel McClain ($4.2 million).
I know the money they've spent got them a Super Bowl Championship, but the point here, is that this is just business as usual in the NFL. We aren't necessarily in a bad spot, just need to spend wisely.
