Because it looks like the Saints may let Jimmy Graham hit the FA market.

I would BREAK THE BANK for this guy - perfect answer to the Gronkowski - Hernandez duo in New England:

I think Miami should stay below the cap just for reasons like this. That would be a huge deal if we could swing it. Winning some games this year might entice some of the FA to sign with us also. Players want to win as bad as we do.

Teams do have to spend a certain percentage of the cap each year...so we can't save that much. But I'm pretty sure next year we can dump Dansby without too much of a cap hit.

And yes, if the Saints are stupid enough to let Jimmy Graham go...get him by any means necessary.

Yep. I think we have to spend more of the cap next year. Seems a bit rushed and lopsided. So we should definitely plan for the future as well. But this FA class is very good for once where we need it. So lets not be too stingy!

In 2013 and beyond, teams must spend 95% of the cap. In the event that player costs are less than this overall league minimum, then, on or before April 15 of the next League Year, the NFL shall pay an amount equal to such deficiency directly to the players.


In terms of minimum salary for each team, the salary floor is 89% of the cap.

I agree on saving some, but not at the expense of filling a current need. There are always ways to creatively juggle and maneuver salaries to get under and around the cap. A smart, savvy GM can do this.

Unplugging the keyboard works for me.

Jimmy Graham to the Fins? I don't think we'd know how to react to something like that happening.
