And just signing someone doesn't count against the cap in the preseason. Only the top 50* contracts count. Signing one player may push another player out of the top 50 and so you just add the DIFFERENCE in their contracts to our cap number, you don't add that person's whole salary. And if they're not in the top 50, you don't count them at all.

* I believe it's 50. If it's not 50, it's close to 50.

There are 4 or 5 teams with less cap money than we have at this point.

Good post! Only one small revision..........it's The Top 51 Rule.
