Oh yeah, and a FA I really like is Kerry Rhodes.

I think this dude is still a gamer and a top notch NFL player. I truly believe he was thrown off the team because he is rumored to be gay, but the dude has game left and can be had very cheap.

As I said before, if we could get linval joseph and jason worlids,it would really impact the draft. That would mean they could take richardson or fuller in the 2nd, seastrunk or DAT in the 3rd. Jmo

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-...-cap-situation

C) When I look here at 2013 rookie cap numbers I estimate we use about 6.2 mill on about 4 rookies and IR the rest of them

http://overthecap.com/nfl-rookie-salary-cap.php

D) When I look at a few contracts and use probability and what I've heard I can cut a few of these contracts and save a few bucks (OD, Schaub, McCain OR Harris, Newton (I Pray), 3 other guys I don't know worth about 1.5 mill, and probably a contract or 2 restructured to save 2 mill)

http://www.overthecap.com/teamcap.ph...xans&Year=2014

Overall this is the math I've done, I can definitely be wrong and I'm totally rounding, feel free to correct me so I better understand this in the future...

B (126) - A (116) - C (6.2) + (D) 13.5 = ~17 mill for FA.

I guess we can get Orakpo. I definitely like the guy that's not in question, but that's gonna be a huge chunk of this. What will we do about depth EVERYWHERE then?

The Texans are an extremely snake bit franchise with regards to injury and we NEVER seem to have any depth anywhere on this team. If we get Brian Orakpo, hell yes I'm down, but we better be VERY smart with where we spend the rest.
The cap calculator on overthecap.com makes the math part much easier for you.

You can play around with cuts, trades, extensions, etc, and then see how much money you end up with.

Dude I've been asking for Kerry Rhodes for a year now but I think he's actually done playing because he doesn't want to play anymore. I would think he would miss the days of locker room shenanigans but I guess that none of that is worth it to him anymore.

Me too, I think he wants to play though. You don't go work out for the Giants being offered $800K if you don't want to play anymore.

He's gay and the NFL isn't ready to accept that yet. In 10 years from now this will happen again with another athlete, I wonder what teams' reactions will be at that time.

We can, but I wouldn't recommend it. His cap #'s for the next 3 years are already close to being out of control due to how many times his contract has been restructured. Need to minimize the amount of dead money if he's cut or decides to retire before his contract is up.

Like Paycheck says we have to be very careful reworking contracts and pushing money onto future caps. It should be done only in rare cases with huge upside for signing or re-signing someone. We need to allow some of these contracts to go away when player get to the end like both Smiths. Those expiring contracts alone brings us almost $13m cap relief IIRC. That is Arakpo + money and a guy like him greatly improves those around him imo. Just info:

"
Accurately assessing Orakpo’s value on the open market, should he get there, will be difficult. Green Bay outside linebacker Clay Matthews signed a six-year, $69.73 million contract extension with the Packers in April. On the other end of the spectrum, the Cleveland Browns handed Paul Kruger, primarily a backup in four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, a five-year, $40.5 million contract in March."

He definitely still wants to play. He can deny it all he wants. He's blacklisted.

Not sure how you think that article supports he's blacklisted. He was offered and turned down a contract. He clearly is not willing to play for vet minimum.

Demarcus Ware is signed through 2017. Rumor has it the Cowboys may ask him to restructure. Outright cut is extremely unlikely this season but if he were he would get more than Smith and less than Mario.

Marshall Newhouse-OT is a FA. I remember lots of folks here wanting him for the Texans but he got drafted by the Packers in the 5th round. Anyone know anything about him or why the Packers are letting him walk? He might not have worked out in Green Bay but lots of guys do much better with their 2nd team.

If we are going to pick up a top dollar free agent we would be much better off doing it elsewhere.
