Default 2006 Cap Estimates A Pre-Cursor to the FA List

Jets-120M
Raiders-120M
Broncos-119M
Chiefs-114M
Redskins-112M
Titans-102M
Falcons-101M
Bucs-100M
Dolphins-97
Steelers-96
Browns-61
Cardinals-62
Vikings-68
Packers are $70 million and the Bengals are at $71 million.
Seahawks $71 million
Chargers $71 million
Niners are at $74 million, and the Bears and Jags are at $75 million.
Rams ($76 million); Ravens ($77 million); Texans ($78 million); Saints ($82 million); Bills ($82 million); Lions ($83 million); Eagles ($85 million); Giants ($89 million); Cowboys ($90 million); Pats ($92 million); Colts ($92 million); and Panthers ($93 million).

Now these are estimates assuming no one is resigned and the Cap increases to 92.5M. Now realizing this many of the FAs will be resigned on these lower teams, and there should be a decent amount of purging high contracts this year, and restructuring. Enjoy this and the FA list that will be posted soon.

Poor Titans. They cleaned house last year, and are still way over.

McNair's current contract counts for $27 million of that number next year. Obviously that won't stand so they will either release him, restructure him, or he will retire. So his real hit will probably be about half that - which is still a big number.

Brad Hopkins and Benji Olson are the other two monster cap numbers that the Titans have to deal with along with other smaller but questionable value things like Travis Henry's 4 million.

It's easy to point fingers but the Texans have set themselves up to have considerable problems down the road as well with the deals they gave to Wade, Walker, Smith, Greenwood, and Wong. None of them will "play their contracts" as Casserly likes to say, and all will count millions in dead money when they are cut before their contracts expire.

True the Titans will have to release or restructure McNair's deal, but they are still going to be right at the cap limit after that happening so they will likely have to move some other players if they want to make any other significant moves.

That's why I also mentioned Brad Hopkins, Benji Olson and Travis Henry who also have cap unfriendly deals headed into '06. I have a feeling the Titans won't restructure McNair again.
