    TT is pulling some funny business. That Vikings deal makes since. They sign big name FA every year but always seem to have more cap space then the Packers.

    I was intrigued by why Thompson would want an extra 4 million in cap space next year... I mean it isn't like he's a bad manager of the cap, so he'd have plenty of room next off-season. I think the cap allocation is set to rise yet again by a good 6-7 million (from 109 million to 116 million, but I'm not so sure).

    He should be free of Manuel's cap charge, so that'd be a positive. I don't see Franks staying on the roster with a 4.5 million dollar cap charge, so that too should free some space up.

    So I'm stumped by why we'd need an extra 4 million in cap space. Perhaps Ted is planning on doing a bit of Free Agency spending? That is a bit out there, but this team is in the rise with a set core that is improving, and a couple of pieces here and there (namely a good RB, nickel back) might set this team up for a serious Superbowl run.

    There aren't a ton of core players to resign this year (Bigby, Lee come to mind, Williams may price himself out of town) so I wonder what called for 4 million being pushed into next year...

    That is genius, and I'm sure TT isn't the only one

    Yeah, I mean this is no where near the level of what the Vikings did with Pat Williams.

    Exactly 100%

    but NOW that the PACKERS are exploiting it, things will change. God forbid GB tries to keep up with the shadyness of the NFL.

    What I fail to understand here is why "Ryan Krouse" and "4 million" are in the same sentence. I'm missing something I'm sure.
