One of our message board members, aj, goes to a great deal of trouble to investigate NFL rules and the convoluted contract structures used today to maintain a spread sheet of the Texans' salary cap status. He has graciously allowed his salary cap worksheet to be posted here. Thanks also to the folks at houstonprofootball for hosting aj's work. Please understand that the salary cap is a very complex calculation that changes with the regular season, post-season, through various pre-season periods, etc. and that reliable information particularly with regard to the complex options, performance bonuses, escape clauses, etc. is very hard to come by, much less interpret. Please make this thread a place to discuss Texans' salary cap issues and to thank aj for maintaining this information for us.
