Default Re: Texans salary cap 2014

Go here for 2014 Texans Cap info: http://www.overthecap.com/teamcap.ph...xans&Year=2014

115.245m on the books for next year, 3.214m in dead money. 118.459 total spending expected. If the cap is 123m + 700k in rollover, then we have 5.241m in space before we start cutting people. So start there and say we cut some of these folks for some cap savings:

Schaub 4m
O Daniels 4.5m
D Manning 4.5m
J Joseph 3.75m

That's 16.75m in savings, plus the estimated space above = 21.991m in cap space. But now you need a starting QB, TE, FS and CB, along with the other major needs on this team, NT, OLB, ILB, RT... Yeah, it looks like we are kinda screwed right now. Even if we do get 3 compensatory picks like I think, we can't fill all those holes in the draft. It will take a couple years to rebuild, and by that time we will need to replace AJ too.

You also have to consider our pending Unrestricted Free Agent list:

Antonio Smith
Wade Smith
Joe Mays
Greg Jones
Ryan Harris
Ben Tate
Elbert Mack
Earl Mitchell
Darryl Sharpton
Garrett Graham

22m ain't gonna cut it.
