When and how much do we need to average a certain % of the cap space over the years?

 

It is an aggregate over 4 years, in this case it is now the 2017-2020 window.  The 2013 - 2016 window just closed,,and every team made the necessary 89% cash spent minimum.  Teams must (once again) spend 89% in cash of the salary cap over the next 4 years.  Being under it in some years can be made up in other years. Must have spent it by new season begins in 2021.

What's the penalty for not spending 89% over the 4 years?

The team has to send the difference (shortage) to the NFLPA.

 

Every team made it last time (Raiders made it very late in 2016 season).

I don't know what is up with Mingo, but he is NOT on the Colts.com roster depth chart, and I can't find any official news from Colts that he is actually signed?

 

Maybe they didn't have the time to get the paperwork done yet?

That would be my guess also.

Mingo deal is now official, side note Chud was the HC in Cleveland when he was drafted in 2013.

Evidently wasn't official until today.

Erik Walden is visiting the Titans today, per PFT. I think with our recent signings it was apparent we wouldn't be making an effort to resign him. May not be the place to mention here but did not want to create a new thread completely seeing as he may be added to this list under "losses" soon.

@Superman Nice Job!

 

So Mr. Ballard, what do you think about the execution of the Indianapolis Colts defense in 2016?

 

"I am all for it."

I forgot Walden said goodbye to Indy on Saturday. A definite loss.

Yes he put a very negative tweet then retracted it and replaced it with a positive version

I am pretty sure that right now we have just under 20 million left to sign any new FA's. Assuming Hunt and Schwenke average @ 2 million each

I didn't even think about that. It sounds like Ballard really listens to the coaches and is the opposite when it comes to Grigson. Pagano has stated he thinks our young offensive line will make big improvements next year. And when Ballard first came in, he said he wants to improve the offensive lines. That we need to win in between the trenches. Pagano must have convinced him that our 2nd year players will hold up. Cause I don't trust anybody in the draft to do better than what we have honestly. Other than the tackle from Wisconsin.

I'd be disappointed if we gave Hunt any more than 3 million for 2 years. Schwenske is probably a little under 2 as well. Both are backups and that is kind of expensive for depth.

I'm just going by the numbers above and believe we have a little more than that. 32 million before Turbin, Hunt, and Schwenke and assuming all are around 2 mil each...

Yes  but there are other things that will come out of that money.  I am taliking available money to spend

 

$001.080m = Spots #52 and #53 on In-Season Active Roster
$006.322m = Estimated Draftee Cap Hit
$006.376m = Dead Money
$003.000m = In-Season “Churn” Space

Here is the latest from Spotrac and has Turbin's contract details.  Top 51 Cap Space is $35,923,819 before Schewnke and Hunt figure in:

Supe's calc up top already included 6 million or so for draft signings, I think that is where we are off with each other.

Ok. If you add the rest up and take it from the amount he has.  We would be about the 19 mill I posted

I like every single one of these deals.

 

Also I could be wrong here. I'm not much of a money numbers or cap guy. I just saw somewhere on twitter that not one of the FA Ballard has signed has had a signing bonus and instead have added guaranteed money on first year of deal? What exactly does this help with? This seems like an interesting business strategy.

    • If you don't think Chuck has had his hands tied because of more than a couple of things I think you need to look closer. No QB, no running game, injuries and rookies. Lack of talent at key positions. You cant make adjustments when you are limited to the players available with the talent to make it happen. All Chuck has been able to do is keep what talent he does have on the field. He don't have the depth to be creative.
    • I've cooled off on Harbaugh.   He hasn't really impressed at Michigan as of late.  He doesn't really ingratiate himself well over time.  I don't expect him to be available anyway.   I also don't want Gruden.  Not impressed by his tenure in Tampa Bay and the deterioration of that defense under his watch.  That Super Bowl trophy he has was with Dungy's team.  The longer Gruden coached there the worse Tampa got.   I trust Ballard to evaluate what's out there and bring in the kind of coach that he wants. Maybe someone he knows from his tenure in Kansas City or Green Bay.  I don't think it has to be a big name for a big name's sake.   If it is, then it will most likely have Irsay's footprints all over it not Ballard's.
    • Well then, let me clarify. I'd like to see a new HC who is a proven creative offensive expert and who brings in a top DC to run that side of the operation. As for Chuck having two hands tied behind his back, I'd disagree. His bad decision making and inability to adapt at halftime are infamous by now and need no further discussion. Luck or no Luck, Pagano has caused his own demise. I'm looking forward to a fresh start with a new coaching staff. Can't happen soon enough. 
    • I was talking about the Arian's offense and how it is detrimental to the health of QBs.
    •   This is so well said....and in addition to all this, he was thrown in behind an O-line that was is complete disarray and  have only recently begun to not completely suck.....
