    Mike Brisiel is now a FA ? Restricted or unrestricted ?
    Remember how our Oline suffered when he went down and Caldwell subbed till Mike got back ? This guy like Myers and Brown is an integral part of our offensive line. Surprised nobody mentioned him going into FA this off season until here ?

    Time for Rick Smith to show he knows how to work a calculator.

    I think most of this type of discussion has taken place under forum about mock drafts. I have noted I expect Brisiel to be re-signed and doubt a high draft pick wil be used on an OG.

    Come on over and check out the other forum.

    Everyone can do this for a team..It will all work out and is a good problem to have..The cap is very malleable, and with the cap increase coming from new TV deals, we will see what happens.

    FA's for 2012, with BOLD being who we need to sign back. Priority IMO goes:

    Foster (pay the man after 2.5 years of being paid under a million) and NO Tate is not the answer without Foster
    Brisiel and Myers (best Oline in the league, must stay together)
    Dreessen (good safety for OD, and if we sign Dreessen, may mean the end of OD coming up soon)
    Allen without a true #2CB we need Allen for reassurance for KJ and a third CB

    Now on to Mario, he's still an unknown in this system. We know what Barwin and Reed (as a rookie) can do, but still do not know about Mario (he needs to be consistent). As of now, I'd use the Franchise tender on him and see if he can play consistently well and/or stay healthy.

    Before anyone panics, remember the new television contract extension.

    ROSEMONT, Ill.--The NFL has extended its television rights deal with NBC by two seasons, the league and network announced Wednesday.

    The NFL's franchise owners approved the two-year extension, which runs through the 2013 season, during a one-day meeting at an O'Hare Airport hotel.
    The NFL's six-year contract with NBC was to expire following the 2011 season. That deal pays the NFL approximately $600 million per season.
    In May, the league announced two-year extensions of its deals with Fox and CBS, also running through the 2013 season. Those extensions reportedly included rights fee increases of approximately 2 percent. The NFL previously extended its contract with DirecTV through the 2014

    http://views.washingtonpost.com/theleague/nflnewsfeed/2009/08/nfl-extends-deal-with-nbc.html


    It has been estimated the total extension will be apprx $3 Billion to NFL with players getting the new CBA cut. This should raise the salary cap in 2013 very significantly

    SM and I went to the trouble to try and figure out the cap space for 2012 offseason, so I figure it's relevant too.

    I think after a bit of discussion in the Mario thread 21-22 million is a solid estimate for 2012 cap room assuming there are no cap ceiling changes.

    2 NFL seasons is a long way off. I don't think you look that far ahead outside of maybe Crushing.

    If Tate continues to look good and stay healthy, I can't see a scenario where we can keep him and Foster.

    Myers says talks with Texans are more "conversations than negotiations". He is hitting the open market. One of the best C's in NFL.

    I believe its just three: Houston, DC, and Seattle. DC just lost a ton of money (30+ mill over the next 2 years). If a non ZBS team wants to give him big $ they are in for a rude awakening.

    San Diego and Baltimore also use some ZBS but it's not a designated offensive scheme/philosophy.
