vmax Posted January 31, 2012 Share Posted January 31, 2012 I've only spent about a half hour trying to figure out the Ravens CAP situation for the upcomming 2012 season so my numbers are not accurate.....but it was enough to put me in a panic! They should be close enough to paint a picture of the roster turnover that is comming up.Anyway...this is to get discussion going in the futile hope... ....that if we all put our immense brain power to work, then we can solve this CAP dilemna for Ozzie so he doesn't have to work. Preliminary beginning numbers:The Ravens have about 36-37 players under contract with CAP counting salaries of $108 mil.This years CAP will be about $125 mil.That leaves apx $17 mil to sign apx 16 players. The Ravens have 13 UFA's.You can't sign Grubbs, put the tag on Rice and give Joe a new contract with that king of money....and you would still need to sign the practice squad players (about $1.5 mil) and the draft picks. They are broke. Something has to and will give...and go. Say good-bye to some of your favorite Ravens. Just like losing McGahee, McClain, Heap and Mason last year. The Ravens have 13 unrestricted free agents, four restricted and four exclusive-rights free agents to sign with this money if they were to stay the same.Take a look at the long, long list:http://blogs.baltimoreravens.com/2012/01/26/ravens-free-agent-list/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
