Not sure if this has been discussed yet; I'm wondering everyone's thoughts on the lack of cap space needed to sign the incoming rookie class?? Before signing Morrah, we has 1.1 million in cap space and I'd assume we'll need 5-6 million for actual number of rookies drafted. I know it's not a ton of space that has to be created (hell the cowboys got $20 million plus cleared) but I don't want to sacrifice long term success for short term roster flexibility.
I'm thinking a Justin smith extension would help and then looking at either/both Carlos Rogers and J Goodwin's deals as potential cuts. I could see some other smaller moves, but think these could be 2 more noticeable moves.
Not really worried, just thinking that some "replacements" could factor into the draft and see these cuts happen as a result as well. Do we draft Jones from Alabama for example and cut Goodwin? Looking for others opinion on who might be a cap casualty.
this is a forum, isnt this the things your supposed to talk about? nvm, i forgot this was niner talk, just bash players and glorify practice squad player.
That's kind of exactly what I thought. Simply opening up a discussion point and told "don't worry about it", I'm not overly concerned just trying to get others ideas or thoughts.
IMO we need to be monitoring situations like this and while I'm 100% confident that they'll figure it out, I am wondering how you think they'll get there. This could have impact on team in next year or two. We have big extensions coming up and need space for rookies, someone's gotta go.
