    This is true, but a man can dream can't he?

    Keep all the money we can and don't sign any unnecessary free agents. Soon we'd have to give our numerous pro bowl players big deals or else other teams will snatch them away.

    Yeah I just don't know how this will translate to a cap per team.

    I'm hoping they bring in a veteran ILB to add some depth with Barnett, Chillar, etc. gone. This is the only position I feel we are thin. It doesn't need to be a star player, just a veteran with game experience who can fill in when required.

    Reports from training camp say Fran├žois is playing really well. But it's only practice...

    I started off with a post about how the figures are derived, but then I realized that I too have no idea how they take the amount allocated to the players and generate a salary cap. I'm working on figuring this out for my own reasons, and when I do I'll be sure to post it.

    Yup. Heard the same about Zombo, Jones and Walden, with Walden taking a slight lead on Friday..

    Big hitter, brought little else. Good luck with Seahawks Atari.

    Atary was a great player for us in 07. Yeah, he was often injuried, but great for him he landed a job.

    Donald Driver not a lock????? Only a "good bet" to make the team? This article by the Journal Sentinel makes some interesting predictions. Yet, I would find some of them frustrating if they came true. Are they saying that James Jones is doing better than Driver? Driver looks ripped in practices this year. He's in great shape. He looks sharp. Is this a prediction of age discrimination??

    Keep Borel over Swain, keep Ryan Taylor. Driver is a lock.

    I'm not worried about DD being cut. He is still as good as or better than anyone not named Jennings. The only way he doesn't make it is injury or sudden "voluntary" retirement.

    Driver looked like he was 25 last game. But I'm wondering who makes it beyond Jennings, Nelson, Driver, Cobb and Jones. West, Gurley and Borel all seem to have a shot.

    Driver will end up being the #2 receiver in this team, in terms of snaps played.

    I thought that maybe he had lost a step, and I do worry with him later in the season, but him being healthy has given his agility back. He's getting great separation from corners as he used to.

    Without trades or additions to the roster West may have a slight chance depending on the numbers. Gurley and Borel realistically don't. Maybe practice squad.

    Pay attention to the Patriots' roster cuts.

    Isn't Wilson a concussion? And Neal isn't that bad if he's listed day to day rather than week to week. I don't expect to see TT do anything at this point.

    Yes, Wilson's injury is listed as concussion like symptoms. Neal is listed as day-to-day and if it was a serious injury you would think TT would have signed a veteran by now.
