I ask, because that is the only "dead money" to speak of in the Texans' cap figure.
Looking at the Patriots numbers
& ours don't seem much different, player for player. We're just paying our players more, imo our players "deserve" more.
The Patriots only have 4 players with a cap number over $6M, we've got 8. They've got about $8M, we've got $3M. Their number doesn't include Talib who made $4.8M last year (if the Pats sign him for next year with a $5M cap number, the Patriots would be at $3M under the cap).
What am I not seeing that you do?
The difference is that they put 18m a year towards a HOF QB, while we continue to pay 10-15m a year for a HOF WR who has ****ty QBs throwing to him.
That and their coach routinely finds quality starters from other teams castoffs. That's the difference.
