Along with Nate Clements and Manny Lawson, added earlier...

I don't know if it will help them, but I think Zimmer is a good coordinator...he may be able tro take these castoffs and do something with them...

you can't blame Whitner for not deciding to play for the Bungles...

The bungles better start signing somebody cause they have to spend a lot of money by the end of the season. Aren't they something like 40 million under the cap?

Per-team spending minimum doesn’t apply until 2013

Posted by Mike Florio on July 30, 2011


One of the highlights of the labor deal, from the perspective of the players, comes from the requirement that each team muat spend at least 89 percent of the salary cap in cash on an annual basis. “We cannot have teams like KC spend only 67% of the cap like they did in 2009,” Saints quarterback Drew Brees wrote in an e-mail to his teammates. “It doesn’t matter how high the cap is if they are only going to spend that much. So with a minimum in place, it requires all teams to be at or above that minimum. More money in players pockets.”

The players got what they wanted. But it doesn’t apply until 2013.

Yes, for 2011 and 2012 no minimum cash spending requirement applies on a per-team basis. We were first alerted to this reality on Thursday morning, during a weekly segment with Steve Davis and Ed Norris of 105.7 the Fan in Baltimore. Davis said that Ravens president Dick Cass had explained the situation in a recent on-air interview, and Davis forwarded the audio to us later in the day.

The summary of the final deal that we obtained on Monday confirms that, indeed, the “minimum team cash spend” applies on a four-year basis from 2013 through 2016, and from 2017 through 2020. No minimum per-team expenditure applies for 2011 and 2012.

Still, on a league-wide basis, the labor deal requires the NFL to spend 99 percent of the salary cap in cash in 2011 and 2012.

So what happens if too many teams spend so little that the league isn’t able to average 99 percent of the cap in actual cash spent? NFL general counsel Jeff Pash, via NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, explained Friday night that the league would be required to pay the difference to the players.

That said, the league doesn’t believe that it will be a problem, even if teams like the Bucs and Bengals and Chiefs decide to spend as little as possible over the next two years. Based on the money spent to date, the league thinks that the average expenditure of $119 million per team easily will be met.

Remember, it’s not cap space but cash spent. So when a team like the Panthers gives defensive end Charles Johnson a $30 million signing bonus on a six-year deal, only $5 million counts against the cap — but $30 million counts against the league’s total spending requirement of $3.8 billion.

The more relevant point, for the next two years, is that teams like the Bucs, Bengals, and Chiefs can choose to stay as far below the salary cap as they want.

Interesting- Taylor Mays is being shopped around. He's an athletic freak. Hasn't panned out for the 49ers, but I'd be interested in bringing him in if the price is right. Ryan Clark can't play forever...

This is only Mays' second year. They will keep him but love seeing Winter stick it to the Bumgals.

BTW--not sure if they have implemented a new internet visa policy or whether Chadbaby is more than you can handle but you have been remiss with your posting volume. Need to get on the ball soon!!!!

Prior to Whitner shunning the Bengals for the Niners, the Eagles tried trading Broderick Bunkley to the Browns earlier this week, but he said that he didn't want to play in lowly Cleveland, so they traded him to Denver instead. Ain't it grand that two teams in our division are held in such high regard?

Ahh Sweetums, there's ways & ways of trying to prove you are far more knowledgable than other posters without having to refer to them as 'Son', which may offend. But never you mind Sunshine, I'm sure in time even you will figure it out.

Nothing I like more than a keyboard Rambo that thinks that distance & anonimity makes it ok to try & be disrespectful.

Insane has been rubbing me the wrong way since he started posting here. The planet has been drama free for the most part since it's inception. No sense in allowing it or dealing with it now. Do unto others as you would do unto yourself. Dude is a piece of work.

Well opinions are like A-HOLES! You can have yours. But I can as well. All I did was point out a fact that the poster was re-posting the same thing I did. If I re-posted a subject that has already a thread to it, you don't think I would be called out for it ? Face facts, you are nothing but a :Hater

If opinions are like a-holes (every one's got one but no one wants to look at the other guy's), aren't you looking at another guy's a-hole by responding?

Doh :HeadBanger

And don't take Chadman calling you son. He'll get on you until you stick up for yourself ;)

Chadman had mentioned the 49ers shopping Taylor Mays as a result of signing Whitner. Will Brinson from CBS Sports had this comment in his short piece on the subject:

"The 49ers single-handedly managed to prove to everyone in the NFL that they don't want Mays and simultaneously sink his market value. If it's true, it's a pretty bad move.

After all, this isn't like using the trading block option in your fantasy league. This is the NFL. And real life and stuff.

But what I want to know is -- did they use BCC? Or did they just CC everyone?

Because not only is CC awkward in that each person knows that you sent the email to everyone, but then you also have to deal with Mike Brown hitting "Reply All" for the next month and a half every time he tries to get in touch with you."

Oh that Mike Brown slam is priceless!!

It happens, man. Quite often, actually. In fact, people sometimes start a whole new thread with some breaking news hours after someone else initially posted this news, and there are already multiple pages worth of replies to the first thread. It just so happens that the second guy didn't see the first thread. Whoops. Someone typically goes in and posts a link to the original thread. They don't add "Ha ha...you stupid jack@$$!!! We've all been talking about this for hours already! Can't you open up your frickin' eyes and see that for yourself, dummy?" I wouldn't do something like that because that is rude, and I would come off looking like a huge bag o' douche. Are you starting to get where I'm coming from? Based upon all of the other happy replies to you in this thread (and others), it is readily apparent that I am not the only one noticing said behavior. We wear big boy pants here. There are other sites out there which are more welcoming with regard to prickishness. I'm sure folks here would be happy to suggest a few that may be more your style. Just sayin'...

Some of us don't have hours to spend reading every single post in every single thread, so we might miss or repost something. So what? skip past and move on, no need for additional useless babble on who was first...
