Harrison was an RFA, not tendered, so he's an unrestricted free agent.

@Supermandoes the new cap space figure include or exclude the 6 mil or so for draft picks?

 

It should include $6m for draft picks, unless I messed something up.

Looks like it does but s0me of the other things aren't deducted.    Should be just under 20 available

Not really missing.    Just that it has to be accounted for and in reserve 

 

$006.322m = Estimated Draftee Cap Hit. You have this I think 

 

 

$001.080m = Spots #52 and #53 on In-Season Active Roster
$006.376m = Dead Money
$003.000m = In-Season “Churn” Space

I don't have churn space; I think it's a given that we won't spend up to the cap in the offseason. I did account for dead money, and I'm using the full roster cap space calculation, not the top 51. 

 

Spotrac is pretty much caught up now, pending Hunt and Schwenke; they account for draft picks. Their bottom line has us just under $144m, with all contracts. Add in my estimate of $4m for Hunt and Schwenke to go to $148m. With rollover, our adjusted cap is $173.6m. The remainder should be $25.6m, approximately.

The man of steel has nerves and patience of steel! I showed the same, sans the draft pick compensation and projected salary allowance for Hunt and Schwenke (that will be fun to say!) earlier.....your numbers are spot on.:hat:

I'll quote my source once he updates again.  Be fun to see if you agree when you see the total breakdown.

I did my previous update in a hurry, so it's possible I miscalculated or forgot something. I just wanted it to be audited to see if I missed something.

How many years does unused cap space rollover?

 

As many as you want, as far as I know. The CBA ends after 2020, so things may change then.

So,  in this thread,  21isSuperman has a post with some tweets in it,  and they point out a new negotiating point that I think you pointed out with the Doyle signing but now it seems clear we're doing it with as many players as possible....

 

No, or low signing bonus and that money is, instead,  given out as a roster bonus.    The player gets the money and the money is not prorated over the contract.    So, I guess we absorb the hit in one year,  instead of multiple years.

 

You like?     Or no?     Either way,  why so?

I'm fine with it. The reason they're loading extra cash in Year 1 is to avoid signing bonuses, which means there's no dead money in future years. I get it. The cash is the same, so the overall cap obligation is the same, even though it's different year to year.

 

It's not my preference, though. Shouldn't matter for our team, with our cap situation, and with the level of contracts we're talking about. But once you spend cap space, it's gone. If you have a prorated signing bonus, you can play with that cap space a little bit, regardless of the dead money. 

 

I'm assuming that when it comes to big contracts, they'll use a signing bonus. If you applied their structure to Luck's contract, he would have had a Year 1 cap hit of $44m. It doesn't work with big money contracts. They would either have to reduce his Year 1 cash -- which is going to be a point of contention for most players -- or they have to use a signing bonus to split it up.

I could be wrong but a roster bonus would mean they have to be on the active roster in week 1 I assume? So guys like Mingo and Hunt etc won't get the bonus if they don't make the cut. Thus yes it would be in their year 1 contract but not guaranteed if say they don't make the final cut. I assume some of those would be a formality but others may not (mingo).

The date of the roster bonus is determined by the contract, it can be any date. It could be Week 1, or it could be May 31, or November 17, or whenever.

I really like the acquisition of Jabaal Sheard at LB who knows how to make opposing QBs feel uncomfortable. INDY needs that: Pressure in a field general's face. A pass rusher who knows how to knock down balls & shorten the field for Chewbacca with additional touches. 

 

Plus, Jabaal Sheard will only make Luck better in practice speeding up his release time with a shorter delivery on Sundays. 

 

Yeah, I know. Supes thread is all about maneuvering the salary cap. My bad. I just love this new INDY toy to reek havoc with man.

@Superman You should pin this thread.

 

BTW, Stephen Holder reported this at approximately 10:00 am, so I am not sure if he is including Turbin's deal or not. I don't think the Turbin deal was "official" until sometime this morning.

LOL. 

 

I just posted about this too. :)

 

I was right about Turbin's deal not being included though. Hunt and Schwenke were not on the books yet either.

DT Al Woods from the Titans, 2 years 5 million

Still in pretty good shape. Zach Brown is on our radar according to Ian Rappaport. So we'll see if any other moves are made

Wow that is a lot more than I thought.

Someone reported we only had 20 million left without consideration of the draft. We have 37.5 now which is quite a bit of money. Can actually still sign Brown and Minter if we want. And TJ McDonald or Jahiri Evans(veteran guard to compete with the young bloods).

You mean "with consideration for the draft".. correct ? We have around 30 mill right now ... that's the latest figure Holder gives , the 37 mill is before Woods and Butler. Then take away around 10 mill for draft and wiggle room .. it would leave around 20 mill available to spend. They actually could easily spend more by turning some of those roster bonuses into signing bonuses. I would be shocked if they did this as these contracts are all very easy to walk away from after year one and that appears to be part of Ballard's strategy .

Butler has been resigned,  @TKnight24 posted in another thread where Stephen Holder has us at cap space. Apparently 30 mil not including Butler, Woods, or the money we accounted for to use on draft picks.

Yes , I 100% agree. It's no doubt the right strategy considering Luck is young and the roster needs building. If the windows closing , then you could consider the big signing bonuses.

    • Don't think Boston would do that. I'd rather have both picks too but they will be wanting to keep the young players and open up cap space so they would likely want to move guys they won't re-sign like Avery Bradley and company. I actually think they might want to move Isaiah because he would be due a big contract in a year or whatever and he has the hip injury. Hard to tell if you take a point guard in Fultz and you have Smart already and Rozier....that's a lot of point guards to have. If we got just both picks or also a throw in we would be looking at a true rebuild. We would see us tanking next year and having possibly two top 10 picks to pair with the #1 from this year and Turner. That would be pretty good way to rebuild. That way you just have to sign perhaps one or two free agents with the cap space you free up from losing PG, Teague, CJ, Monta, and AL and you should have a very competitive team. I think Turner is going to be an all-star caliber player. Just have to hit on a couple draft picks and then add a nice free agent or two and you should be able to compete in the East. There is no replacing PG...but if you see that you can't improve the team around him for the long term...you get the best deal you can or you risk your star just walking out on you leaving you with nothing to rebuild with.
    • too late now, but i streamed it live on youtube
    • Yes, You are correct! He's got drug suspension possible. So I wouldn't touch this he's also got some character issues. He;s not the worst guy around or anything but his car was pulled over with a 12 yr old kid smelling of weed and he resisted arrest.   
    • Reggie White? Hes considered the GOAT at his position isn't he? Though JJ Watt has a shot to beat him out.
    • No. Some of those players are going to be underwhelming or outright busts. And the majority of them are going to need time to get acclimated to the NFL's level of speed. There are some positions that just take awhile to develop, the secondary would have a very hard time.    Then to win it they need to go up against much more experienced teams.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
