That's only $101.469M, for 44 players, we should have no problem signing anyone.

But, according to Charlie Palilo, we are only $7M under the cap without our FA..... we (or someone) must be looking at something wrong.

I believe profootball talk said we are $7million under the cap right now, but all the texans players are still under contract until march 13.

Default Plenty of money to work with

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...-rumors/page/3



Quote:
Spotrac, the popular contract tracking website, lists the Texans at having $96,801,485 counting against the salary cap in 2012. With a likely cap of $125 million, that means the Texans have nearly $30 million in cap room for 2012.

This would make sense if we account for all expiring contracts including Marios 18 plus million


It goes on to say that we could cut Jones, Leinart and Walter and have ANOTHER 11 plus million. This would leave enough money to sign Mario, Foster, Myers, Barwin, Brown and have money left to sign a legit wide out

Default Re: Texans Salary Cap Thread

I am definitely not a mathmetician but NFL allowed Texans 2011 cap regardless of what it was and we lose Mario's cap hit regardless of what it was; doesn't that mean we have Mario's 2011 cap to use, regardless?

You would think. But, keep in mind most players contracts will escalate for the 2012 season... that's just the way it works.

Then we've got dead money from the guys we cut after June 1st.

Then we just signed Arian to an $8M 2012 cap.

After the uncapped year, the CBA lowered the cap. I read somewhere, that the Texans were expecting the cap to go up (at least back to pre uncapped year numbers) but it doesn't appear to be.

I'm really beginning to think the Texans are truly in a pickle.

Most think JJ & Leinert are gone and that's about $7m cap + Foster's 2011 makes Foster's new deal mute. Mario's $20m can sign him, Myers and Briesel. Other players likie Jason Allen, Dominque Barber, Delhomme, Jeff Garcia, Bryant Johnson, etc. can be gone and all dollars add up. That does not include an re-done contracts.

I think he is saying our situation is not as dire as it would appear. Mario's contract will free up $18M by itself.

When does JJones/Leinarts salary become "locked in" for the 2012 season? I expected them to be cut already.

516 I don't think either are guaranteed so they can come off any time for team's convenience.
