    Lots of teams up against the cap .... Could see a lot of teams in the position the Texans found themselves in this offseason losing / cutting guy's who you wouldnt expect.

    Must be like the NFLs version of the Yankees. I dont see how after spending ALL that money 2 seasons ago they have that much.

    How is PFT calculating this amount? Is it based on our current 90 man roster, if so we'll be trimming alot in training camp and have more money available to pick up our WR#2 once the season starts. Or is it based on our 52 highest contracts? Either way that figure should go up toward the end of training camp due to cuts and then we can pick up some decent quality players from other teams cuts. Just wondering how they came up with that figure.

    That wouldnt make sense to wait until camp is over to go after a #2. The #2 is on the team right now. Whoever that is the coaches probably already have a good idea. That person needs to be in camp learning the system.

    The rest of the AFC South, though, doesn't seem to be in that position now.

    I recall reading some time ago that a team needed something like 500k or more space to be eligible to carry over, but we were under the threshold. On my phone, so I can't look it up :(

    If this cap space is the reference for next year I don't see how we will be able to afford extensions with Schaub, Brown and Barwin without making more cuts like Antonio and Walter...the bleeding continues.

    When extensions get done it generally lowers the cap hit for the current year other than on rookie contracts. So Schaub and Smith getting extensions would create more cap space and then Brown and Barwin could be signed up. Even with Brown and Barwin players are typically willing to take small salaries in the first year because they will also be receiving a signing bonus. The payroll would be high due to all the signing bonus money but the cap hit is workable.

    From ESPN Feb 2012:

    This still didn't make any sense to me in that, per the new CBA, any and all unused monies can be transferred over to the next year. There is no apparent minimum.

    Dutchrudder, I dug this up from the archives..........one of your old posts (of Feb 15, 2012)......that refers to the $1.08 million. It shows carry over for both houston and San Diego. Could they forgotten the deadline? I would hope that would not be the explanation.:

    http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/archive/index.php?t-89821.html

    This source also affirms this $1.08 number.:

    See below.

    Yeah , what does that say about the Texans "window of opportunity"?

    Its obvious the Tits and Dolts will have the means to close the gap in talent next year while the Texans may take a step back.


    It could be this season or bust .... if they cant figure out how to solve the cap issues.

    There was a thread on this a couple of weeks ago. It's hard to translate today to next season. In addition to expiring contracts, we've got dead money (Demeco, Winston, and even Okoye as examples) that will be dropping off. Demeco's trade cost money against this years cap, so clearly that was done with an eye towards next years cap situation. I also think the fact that a restructure was never even discussed with Winston says that move was likely as much about next years cap space as it was this years.

    Clayton did a piece which started the previously mentioned discussion. He stated that as of now, the Texans are actually fifth on the list of available cap room for 2013 ($9 Million better off than Tenneesee). Here's a quote and a link to the article - maybe things won't be so horrible after all. No clue as to where he gets his numbers, but given it's Clayton, I'll put as much credibility in them as anyone.

    But as someone else pointed out, we've got to use that available cap room to try to sign our own guys. Schaub, Brown, and Barwin don't count against the cap in 2013 because they'll be free agents.

    Thats a big chunck of change going to those three - and if all they have is $24.8m to spend among them , I dont believe its enough to keep all three.


    Who else is in the final year of their deal this year ?! I believe Rashad Butler will also be a FA.


    I can see them asking a couple guy's to take pay cuts or extending them to free up space - Antonio Smith ? OD ? Maybe Wade Smith let go ....

    The following year you have Cushing coming up as a FA .... Its gonna be costly to keep him.
