That the NFL has extended the time frame for player releases to be in from 4PM on Thursday to 10PM.

And, the meeting with the owners will be an attempt to resolve the CBA....according to ESPN.

They were talking about doing this earlier last week as well if a deal wouldnt get done in time.

I hope a deal gets done... I don't want to watch an NFL without a salary cap.

Below is the amount of money each team is under or over the $92 million salary cap as of March 1. The current list of cap numbers does not include the salaries of restricted and exclusive-rights players. When teams find out what the value of those tenders will be, the cap number is expected to be adjusted before Thursday, adding $1 million or $2 million to the total number for each team.

Please note, this list will change rapidly as teams begin cutting players over the next day to get under the salary cap by Thursday's 4 p.m. ET deadline (4 ET is the end of the NFL's business day, and no player can be cut after the close of business).

Under the salary cap
Team Cap status (under)
Minnesota Vikings $24 million
Arizona Cardinals $21.8 million
Cleveland Browns $21.5 million
Green Bay Packers $21 million
San Francisco 49ers $17.4 million
San Diego Chargers $17.1 million
Jacksonville Jaguars $14.2 million
Philadelphia Eagles $14.2 million
Baltimore Ravens $11.9 million
Detroit Lions $10.6 million
St. Louis Rams $10.6 million
Seattle Seahawks $9.5 million
Cincinnati Bengals $9 million
New Orleans Saints $8.2 million
Chicago Bears $7.8 million
Houston Texans $4 million
New York Giants $3.3 million
Buffalo Bills $2 million
New England Patriots $1.5 million

Over the salary cap
Team Cap status (over)
Oakland Raiders $26 million
Miami Dolphins $21.9 million
Kansas City Chiefs $20.7 million
Tennessee Titans $18.7 million
Washington Redskins $17 million
Denver Broncos $16.4 million
Carolina Panthers $12.7 million
Atlanta Falcons $11.7 million
New York Jets $11.1 million
Indianapolis Colts $9.4 million
Tampa Bay Buccaneers $8.7 million
Pittsburgh Steelers $7 million
Dallas Cowboys $1.2 million

The Broncos owner is fairly influential in league circles and probably is one of the nine owners from the wealthiest teams that are threatening to sue if the revenue sharing between teams cannot be worked out.

If Bowlen thought a deal was possible I doubt the Broncos would have pulled the trigger on cutting 3 starters on Wednesday.

no CBA agreement = no T. Owens in Denver

can't the Broncos haven't talked about this.

I just read on ESPN that the owners met and decided to completely break off labor talks...

not good...

Shiiiiiiit,this totally sucks.

There will be a lot of good players on shitty teams,and a lot of good players on no team because of this.And if we go un-capped in 2007,a lot of teams,including us,are screwed because when we do get a good player and he becomes a FA,he'll be bought by a rich owner like Jerry Jones.

Why do you have Ben in an Indians jersey? Wishful thinking?

03-02-2006, 09:19 PM
If a player is willing to go to an owner like Jerry Jones for Huge Money, I don't want them on this team. Plax syndrome, as it's known, lol. Whenever it comes down to getting 1.5 million and being with a team you love, or getting 2.5 million and going into a circus like Dallas... You know the choice players like Hines and Jerome would make, and the choice that Plax and others would make.

If you go to team that pays you more $$, and because it also will pay other players more $$ that increases your chances to play for a championship, I have a hard time seeing how that is not a win/win for a player.
