Default Salary Cap Adjustments are in

this kinda sucks but helps explain why joey was a cap casualty when it appeared we were already under $109 mil:

http://nfl.com/news/story/10045377 (rest of the article is pretty damn good too)

Quote:
SALARY-CAP ADJUSTMENTS
Finally, the salary-cap adjustments have been made and teams know how much space they have. The salary cap was set at $109 million per team but adjustments for each team had to be made for incentives earned and not earned.

If a team had been charged in the 2006 salary cap for a likely-to-be-earned incentive and the player never earned that incentive, then the club gets the salary-cap space back in 2007. With that in mind, the teams with the most adjusted space are Minnesota ($118 million), Kansas City ($117.5 million), Jacksonville ($117.5 million), New Orleans ($115.5 million), and Cleveland ($115.4 million).

On the other side of the coin, teams that had not-likely-to-be-earned incentives that didn't count against the 2006 cap but were earned by players during the 2006 season adjusts the 2007 cap down from $109 million. Teams seeing their cap space shrink include Tennessee ($105.4 million), the Jets ($105.8 million), Miami ($106.3 million), Pittsburgh ($106.3 million), and San Diego ($106.4 million).

It's not a bad thing, especially if a player produced more than expected. However, it does take upward of $4 million of the 2007 space away from a team's effort to compete this season.
i think minnesota was already about 20 something million under the cap and now they have an extra 9???

It would be interesting to know what players managed to over achieve last year on the Steelers team - the Willie Parker is the only one who springs to mind.

Any ideas?

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Wille Parker has to be the big one.

Perhaps something to do with the rookies (Holmes, Smith) reaching certain statistical or playing time milestones? Didn't Jeff Reed finally break the longest field goal record at Heinz Field---thats gotta be worth $500!

saying ben and willie "managed to over achieve" for throwing 3500+ yds and rushing for over 12 tds, almost sounds like a slam. im sure along with similar bonuses to these, holmes had one for snaps played or rec/rec yds. bens contract was loaded with incentive clauses, as im sure willies bargain deal was too. holmes contract was rather cheap also so all 3 probably ate a good chunk of that adjusted price.

You think Bens contract would have an incentive related directly to passing yardage?

I'd find it difficult to believe that Ben could throw for 23 INT's and only 18 TD's and still hit an incentive clause.

I can see Willie hitting the target and also Holmes who a good rookie year as a receiver.

ahhaaha that was funny

I think Nate washington also has to be added to that list since he is making near minium wage. Also Ike taylor is producing well but i dont know how much he is making. I am telling you by next year we will be adding james harrison to this list he is going to have a monster year

BTW- how much is troy making $$$$$$$.
