I think the salary cap method is flawed. You're using our current 2012 numbers, but have you subtracted the players that are free agents in 2013? I feel like some of these numbers should be higher. No one having over 30 million in cap space seems unrealistic.

Agreed. There will never be a representative for the Ravens under these rules because they mean that Ray Rice, Joe Flacco and Ed Reed (among others) are made free agents without giving the team the cap space that not having them creates. It basically double penalises any team that wants to sign FAs


Lions have similiar issues under these salary cap suggested figures Crying or Very sad

Interesting read from John Clayton

Let's try to track down the source of Clayton's #'s. That may give us a better perspective on what each team's cap numbers for 2013 truly are.

This link really only has about 1/4 of the #'s we need.

I think he honestly went through each team and figured their cap numbers, or someone did for him. Because I went through and did the Bengals and ended up with 41.1 million in cap and he says we should be at 42.

And as pointed out, I am losing a lot of players with big contracts, such as Robert Geathers, Nate Clements and Andre Smith, and with only 29 million there's no way I could replace them and sign a few FAs.
