Posted 26 Sep 2014Here are some bits from an article via Bleacher.
QuoteTeams can simply choose to carry remaining cap space over from one year to the next.
There's a limit to how much cap space can be carried over, though, because from the 2013 season on out, a team has to spend at least 89 percent of its unadjusted cap space over a rolling four-year period. However, that word "unadjusted" is huge.
Let's say a team chooses to spend exactly 89 percent of its share of the salary cap over each of the next four years, rolling over the surplus each time. In the fifth season, the team will still only have to spend at least 89 percent of the standard 2018 salary cap all NFL teams will haveóbut that team's adjusted 2018 cap number will include that compounding 11 percent that's been growing exponentially since 2014.
Supposing the league-wide salary cap stayed flat at $125 million over the next four years, a team that spent $111.25 million each year and rolled over the remainder would have a whopping $180 million to spend in 2018.
What I am seeing according to this article is we will not be required to spend any more than 89% of the NFL cap # any givin year. This means you can carry up to 11% compounding year to year like a savings account. So the question becomes is Idzik being cheap and trying to show huge profits or he he positioning us much like the Seahawks to be able to buy in talent? Personally I thing he is positioning us to win in FA. However with only 89% needed to spend per year he also can cherry pick year to year nad never have to over pay just to satisfy the cap. This means guys like Austin Howard will probably not be retained but we will be able to keep guys like Wilkerson, Richardson ect..
QuoteOf course, if they spent every dollar of that $180 million in cap charges, next season they'd need to cut $55 million off the roster to get under this imaginary (and unrealistically flat) cap.
This is why the Seahawks have a real challenge ahead of them.
I would assume he could structure the contract of any player as a front loaded deal however that runs a risk in its own right (thats another thread).
This was a good point but a huge assumption.
QuoteWinning the Super Bowl earns a general manager a few years' grace, though, and Schneider's proven he knows how to draft well and build a team. If he can prove he's mastered the art of navigating the CBA's finer points, too, the Seahawks will become the kind of dynasty the NFL engineered the salary cap to prevent.
Long story short there is no requirement for us to spend more than the 89% of the NFL cap regardless of how much space we have. The question becomes what is the plan? Do we attack FA in 2015? Or will we just cherry pick and not over pay?

Getty ImagesWith a pair of cornerbacks suffering injuries at practice on Sunday, the Jets need help at the position. Their list of potential replacements includes a former Patriot.
Asante Samuel, whose dropped interception set the stage for David Tyreeís helmet catch in Super Bowl XLII, was contacted by the Jets, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Per Mehta, itís unlikely that Samuel will be signed, since the Jets plan to go younger.
Samuel, 33, appeared in 11 games with 10 starts for the Falcons in 2013. He spent four years with the Eagles after Super Bowl XLII and five before that with the Patriots.
Posted 3 Aug 2014Does anyone have any experience with this? I saw it costs $20 for the whole preseason and since I don't get the games live up here thought it may be a cool thing. It said I can stream to my lapper or tablet. It I use the wife's lapper I can use her HDMI plug and use my TV. I also have not been able to find any discount codes that work although I do see them in searches.
