  1. denden29 added a post in a topic The Salary Cap   

     
     
     
    I posted this a couple of places:
     
    There is no "salary cap floor" but a CASH spending floor of 89% cumulative per team over two four year periods, not per year;
     
    "For each of the following four-League Year periods, 2013-2016 and 2017-2020, there shall be a guaranteed Minimum Team Cash Spending of 89% of the Salary Caps for such periods (e.g., if the Salary Caps for the 2013-16 and 2017-2020 are $100, $120, $130, and $150 million, respectively, each Club shall have a Minimum Team Cash Spending for that period of $445 million (89% of $500 million)." CBA
     
    The league wide spending must be 95% of CASH for the periods (2013-16, 2017-2020).
     
    For example, Joe Flacco was paid approximately $30 million in cash in 2013 but cost $7 million on the salary cap.  For "Salary Floor" purposes the entire $30 million counts towards the 89% team spending necessary over 2013-16, not $7 million, this is why there is no cap floor.
     
    The bottom line is no team makes roster decisions based on meeting their salary floor.

    The actual salary cap number is quite meaningless given the fact that it is the same for every team. 
     
    Example:
     
    The cap goes from $90 million to $100 million.
     
    Team A has $1 million in carry over they can has an adjusted cap of $101 million, the rest of the league probable has at least $100 million, unless they had a negative carryover due to earned incentives not counted on the last years cap.
     
    Team B has $20 million in carry over they can spend $120 million. 
     
    Team B has more flexibility to cut players and take on their dead money clearing out space moving forward, the money they prorated in the first place lowering that players year one cap hit and can offer more in free agency.
     
    If you front load or pay as you go say $10 million guaranteed in year one of a five year deal, it's a $10 million cap hit.  $10 million prorated over five years is $2 million each year of the five years (Yes you'd need a minimum season salary but making it easy). 
     
    If you cut player 1 ($10 mil) after year one no dead money, cut player 2 after year one $8 mil. dead money but you carried over $8 million so it equals out.  Also when you prorate the yearly cap hit goes up, the above proration causes a two million dollar cap hit increase over the pay as you go for the last four years, so that eventually evens out.
     
    Teams like the Buccaneers used almost no proration in their deals. Guaranteed money was paid over two years season salaries but they restructured year two of Carl Nicks & Vincent Jackson's deal paying them almost all of their second year guaranteed salary in guaranteed roster bonus at the end of year one of their contract.  Since the roster bonus was fully guaranteed it got prorated like signing bonus over five years, so most teams use proration at some time. 
       
    When the actual cap goes up it does give teams more resources but drives the price of free agents up as well so those with higher adjusted cap numbers have an advantage.
     
    Last year saw a stagnant free agency period due to the slow growth in the cap but this year will be more competitive causing higher salaries which will still not allow certain teams to be competitive in FA even with the actual 2014 cap increase.

  6. denden29 added a post in a topic Potential WR Emmanuel Sanders Contract   

     
    Sperm, I definitely hear what you are saying and a pay-as-you go contract could work here but look at the Philadelphia Eagles just signed Jason Peters, Jason Kelce, Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper all with DeSean Jackson having a $12.75 million 2014 cap hit, the highest cap hit of his five year deal which takes place in year three just like the mock contract for Sanders.  Also the Eagles are rumored to be in play for Jairus Byrd.
     
    They were able to do this by carrying over and that is what John Idzik wants to do. Similar to what Jeff Ireland did with the Dolphins last year, although I doubt Idzik is that aggressive.  Mike Wallace 2013 cap hit was $3.25 million while Brian Hartline was $2.115 million. This year Wallace jumps to $17.25 million and Hartline $6.21 million yet the Dolphins have about $30 million in cap space due to the carry over.  I've heard that the Dolphins could prorate $12 million of Wallace's $15 million guaranteed base salary, saving $9 million but bumping his 2015-17 cap hit up $3 million more.
     
    Even is his short, limited signings, Idzik has used a combination of proration and pay-as-you-go.  The money saved in year one would be offset if the Jets had to cut him after year two.  No one wants $4 million in dead money but the Jets are into Cromartie for $5.5 million this year no matter what and somehow they have space.
     
    You know all contracts especially sort after free agents, look Dennis Pitta got 5-year, $32 million $16 million guaranteed, (2013 - 20 receptions for 169 yards, 29 in June), always carry risk if you front load the money you save later if you cut the player with no dead money after a few years, prorate and possible pay later or at least increase the players cap hit moving forward but you saved in that first year. 
     
    Idzik's goal is to have flexibility to in his adjusted cap in 2015 and 16, while who knows the market for Sanders the contract laid out is in line with what a #2 free agent receiver could make.  There is no reason why the Jets couldn't give Sanders this contract and acquire Marshall in 2015, the money saved in year one can be used for him and Idzik prorates another bonus keeping Marshalls cap hit down in 2015.  If they did sign Marshall and kept Sanders contract the same the team should still be able to be financially stable in 2016 then can get away from Sanders for $2.8 million in 2017 or just cut Sanders in 2016 and save $6.45 million.
     
    The question as to whether one believes talent wise Sanders isn't worth a $6.5-$7.75 million per year is very debatable but you know some team will give him this type of money but I feel that no matter who the Jets sign a multi-year deal with they will look for the proration savings early and leave enough flexibility to move on later. This isn't an inescapable contract like Calvin Johnson's $20.55 million 2015 cap hit and $24 million 2016 cap hit.
      
    Guess we'll see how much of this year's money Idzik will want to front load or could he choose to front load more deals moving forward in future years depending upon his cap space, it will be interesting to see.

    The team and Folk have until July 15 to work out a long term deal.  This Tag just prevents him from hitting the open market and gives the Jets some leverage in negotiations.

    No, Revis needs to be on the Bucs roster on March 13th for the Jets to obtain their third round pick (#69) if he is cut or traded before that date the Jets get the Bucs fourth.

    Good job but you forgot to throw in the four or five extra picks the Jets will have with "rumored" trades, which will never happen, along with the third, fourth, fifth & sixth round comp picks everyone thinks the Jets will get.

  13. denden29 added a post in a topic Mehta: Jets brass souring on Stephen Hill--possible trade bait   

    A.J. Jenkins was taken 30th overall in 2012 draft by the 49ers traded to the Chiefs in exchange for Jonathan Baldwin before 2013 season:
     
    2012 - 0 receptions for 0 yards.
    2013 - 8 receptions for 130 yards.
     
    Brian Quick was taken 33rd in 2012 draft by the Rams:
     
    2012 - 18 receptions for 302 yards.
    2013 - 11 receptions for 156 yards.
     
    Stephen Hill taken 43rd 2012 draft:
     
    2012 - 24 receptions for 342 yards.
    2013 - 21 receptions for 252 yards.
     
    Not that he's been good (has had some moments) or will even remain with the team this season but others have had worse swings and misses on higher picked receivers that year.

    There was a change in the blog talk system which prevented the show from hitting I-Tunes.  Think it's been corrected but I'll be checking and if there are any problems please let us know.
     
    Thanks
