well for one reason is that we have to overpay players or pay the premium on players just to get them to come to an expansion team. Unless a player really wants to play for Houston and live there then a player more than likely is coming for pay increase. When we got players from the expansion draft there were a few players right there that were cap causaulties from other teams, they just couldn't afford them. We could since we were starting off with a clean slate (ie no cap penalties, no amortized bonuses, no final year restructuring) I don't think we will have huge problems, but we are getting close to the cap. I think we can restructure a couple of guys to afford us the chance to sign other players. I think we will be ok with what we have. Although the Texans did lose their financial whiz a few months back I think.
