AJ's contract is a killer because they have restructured it so damn may times pushing money forward. 7 years , 67m with ~20.5m or more guaranteed. He will account for almost $16m in cap space this season , 16m next season and 15m in the final year.

Cap hits for this season:

#80 16m
Schaub - 14m
Brown - 8.5m
Foster - 8.5m
JJo - 11.25m
Cushing - 5.5m
Myers - 7m
Manning - 6m
KJax - 4.335m


That's 81.m+ of cap space without factoring in OD's ~6.25m cap hit.


Now consider how many of their top players didn't contribute sh!t last season and you realize why they are in such bad shape cap wise.

Schaub , Foster , Cushing , Manning & JJo were all on the bench for significant amounts of the season.
Who put the team in this position? Who thought these contracts were a good idea?

Rick/Gary/Olson/Wade

Did Gary sign off on the offense contracts/(Schaub,Foster) did Wade sign off on defense? Was this Rick's idea or did Olson have to sign off on everything.

I'm just wondering what your opinion of the orgs financial team is?
