Looks like Nnamdi to Jets??????
 
Its being reported that the cowgirls have fallen out of the race for him leaving it up to the jets? If they sign him, and already signed Tone, keeping Revis, how will they have the money to keep Cromartie and Edwards??? Would love to have Cromartie play opposite of Taylor! What do yall think???? :tt03: :thumbsup:

The Steelers won't get Cromartie.

But, if the Jets get Namdi, Burress would almost be a necessity for the Steelers.

i don't possibly see how they could hand out another huge contract and stay under the cap ...:noidea:

revis
mangold
der brickshaw
holmes
sanchez

all have big contracts plus david harris has a 10 million dollar franchize tag on him.
these 6 guys alone should be eating up at least 30 - 40 % ? of the 120 mill cap space ...:noidea:

obviously they could restructure their deals , but sooner or later you gotta pay the piper .... kinda like our national debt.

I'm not a numbers guy, and I've never understood the salary cap. We NEVER sign big-name free agents and rarely give big contracts to our own players, yet every year we struggle to get under the cap. Meanwhile, other teams are signing big-name free agents every year. :huh:

i think the common misconception is that the salary is evenly distributed over the length of the contract. such as a 5 year 50 mill contract would cost a team 10 mill against the cap every year for 5 years for that player .....wrong.
they backload the salaries in a way so that if they choose to cut the guy after 3 years of the 5 , they won't still have him on the payroll or at least have it so its a manageable amount
contracts aren't guaranteed unless its stipulated in the contract. ...like holmes deal calls for 24 of the 50 mill guaranteed so his deal would look something like this....
2011 - 8 mill bonus
.............1 mill base salary
2012 - 8 mill bonus
.............1.3 mill base salary
2013 - 8 mill bonus
.............1.7 mill base salary
28 mill paid

2014 - 10 mill base salary
2015 - 12 mill base salary

they have all the guaranteed money paid in the first 3 years , so they could cut holmes after that and he won't see the remaining 22 mill of the contract. and it cost them nothing to cut him.

under the old CBA a players salary could not increase by more than 30 % a year. this kept teams from pushing all the money into the future.

* DISCLAIMER * .... I MAY BE WRONG ABOUT EVERYTHING..:chuckle:
