Not a capologist but because DW/DD Moulds and the others were released prior to the 2007 season the cap hit for signing bonus and other guaranteed money takes place this year if I am to understand it correctly.

So the franchise takes one huge hit this year (hence no FA money) and then will have money for the following year.

i thought the signing bonuses/garuntees are amortized over the life of the contract and all the big contracts (DC,DD, moulds) has around 3 yrs to run so shouldn't we still have pretty high 'dead money' until then

My limited understanding:
Bonuses/guarantees are amortized over the life of the contract UNTIL such time as the team cuts or trades the player, at which time the remaining bonus/guarantee money is accelerated into one year.

All the best,
Rick
