vmax Posted February 20, 2016 Share Posted February 20, 2016 (edited) At the time, it seemed as though the Baltimore Ravens were making the right decision when they extended the contract of defensive back Lardarius Webb and gave new deals to keep offensive tackle Eugene Monroe and tight end Dennis Pitta.Now all three of those contracts fall in the category of buyer's remorse. Those deals rival Joe Flacco's monstrous cap number as the reasons Baltimore has the second-worst cap situation in the NFL.According to the ESPN roster management system, the Ravens have only $6.1 million in cap space, and that's before the team uses the franchise tag on kicker Justin Tucker ($4.5 million) and places a second-round tender on restricted free agent Kamar Aiken ($2.5 million). Only the Buffalo Bills, who currently are over the projected $154 million cap, are in a worse situation....http://espn.go.com/blog/baltimore-ravens/post/_/id/25772/three-disappointing-contracts-have-put-ravens-in-nfls-second-worst-cap-situation Webb, Monroe and Pitta count a total of $25.9 million against the cap, or 16.8 percent of Baltimore's entire cap. In comparison, Flacco's $28.55 million cap number represents 18.5 percent of the Ravens' cap.And they got nothing on the Ray Rice deal.Conclusion: Sorry. Bad CAP management. You can't pay a guy free agent super star money when they are not that. Edited February 20, 2016 by vmax Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
