The difference is some of their players and how well they play together and run their schemes. Money isnt the problem.
Agree. 3 million makes it possible to react or have some more space next year.
Compare that with McCombs and his Team in Minnesota. The Vikings were so much under the Cap, that they took the SB of the Antoine Winfield contract - 10 million BTW - and converted it into an option bonus for his very first year. Doing that he took the 10 million cap hit without any problems and he can be cut in any of the following years without Cap rammifications. And they have even more space remaining. That is an owner that has NO interest in spending money on his team.
