Clayton is usual pretty accurate and that is extremely close to NETRATs. Where to spend it?

Acording to the site, CRog made only $417 more than Cory Redding last year. In a few years, he will be making prime money, as will KingJones, Roy, and Mike, eventually. How are we going to balance our cap dollars and keep a competitive team?

The downside of all these high draft picks is that you have to pay them eventually.

there might not be now but there will be a CBA in 2006 you can bet on that. The thing is with all these high priced players we can use them for trade bait when thier contracts get high priced or ask them to restructure. We have never been in cap hell and I really don't think we will reach there anytime soon.

The Lions may not have ever been to Cap Hell, but they have been in Cap Divorce Court when they were carrying $13 million in dead money a few years back when Matt took over. The main contracts at large were for Herman Moore and Charlie Batch. Some other smaller contracts comprised the remaining amount. That dead money kept the Lions from being more than semi-active players in free agency for a couple years.

Agreed, I'd much rather be in Hell than divorce court...or heck, even married

Its almost enough to get our rookies capped off, but we'll be looking at cap trouble though...

Seems like enough to get the rookies signed and put some away for the inevetible quick shopping spree for F/As off the street when we have a couple of injuries. Doesn't look like Ty Law money is in there.

I think we might be able to avoid cap hell for a few years if we are close and these guys want to win a SB. Although it would be nice to always field a team that is competative and in the hunt in today's salary cap era that isn't likely so I think the next best scenario is ride these guys out as long as we can try to win a SB or two or even three go into cap hell and do a Titans/Lions purge and cut everyone loose and spend 2-3 years in the basement starting over from scratch. I would prefer that much more than 40 years of mediocracy while never getting into cap trouble!!
