Re: Texans salary cap 2014
Even resiging Ninja at $6 per annum, we can always defer some of the bonus money.
Resigning most of the top veterans, except W.Smith will cost altogether less than the money available (and we will have more than 53 on the roster.)
These guys will compete with the new draft picks for their job.
Assuming, six rookies will stick, their total cap for the first year comes up to about $6M, but they will displace the guys that we've been mentioning.
Six of these guys plus Ninja already add up to 53 active contracts.
(Not counting any FAs that might be resign.)
The total of $12M ($6+6) is $4M under the $16M or so that we have available.
