  • are you ready for an NFL without a salary cap?

    the answer is a bit more complicated than you might think:

    <<...The NFL kicks off the unsalary-capped version of the free-agency season tonight, though it may as well kick the free out of free agency.

    Under the new rules, a supersized batch of restricted free agents aren't really free to leave at all. As for the actual unrestricted free agents, they may discover the uncapped year isn't exactly the mother lode as previously assumed.

    Still got questions? Here are some answers as the NFL takes the path into unfamiliar territory.

    Q: Why will 2010 not have a salary cap?...>>

    Don't care what established players can make, it's those unproven rookies that need a bracket/ceiling. You pay a guy big bucks because he starred vs Utah, BYU etc etc? Something is broke and needs fixing.

      I agree with you, Avante.
      You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

        Early indication appears to show that there's been no major uptick in wild spending. The skins have been restrained and have even appeared to be looking to cut rather than spend. Nate Burleson looks like he's getting a nice deal but it's the same deal Michael Clayton got last season.

        Avante's right about the rooks.

          Avante is finally right about a football issue
          Negotiating with rookies is ludicrous. Some reasonable schedule should be made based on the player's draft number, then players could take it or leave it. Save the big bucks for proven vets.

            Rookie salaries do have minor controls:

            <<Teams can sign rookies selected in the first half of the first round of the NFL Draft to a contract that is at most 6 (six) years. Players taken in the second half of the first round can only be signed to deal with a maximum 5 (five) year duration. Players taken after round one cannot be signed to a deal longer than four (4) years. Meanwhile, rookie contracts can not be renegociated in the first two (2) years. >>

              Wow, surprising that the Lions actually look like they are ready?!?! :?

              Two signings before lunch of the first day of FA.

              Nate Burlson 5yr $25 mil
              Vandeb Bosch ??yr $26 mil

              This is a big surprise as the Lions don't usually sign anyone until April. I guess the new coach actually knows how to get players interested in the team. or Did the Fords win the lottery this week?

                what difference does it make - the owner or designee does the negotiating. Supply - demand
