Dashon Goldson was drafted by the 49ers. Just an FYI
Wow, correct me if I'm wrong but if we carry over that 12.8 mil, teamed with the releases of Amano, Hutchinson & Babineaux, we can have 35 - 40 mil in cap space?
YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH
Yes, the way the new CBA was setup, a team can carry over any unused cap space from the previous year. If I understand it correctly, it's a like a snowball, teams can just keep collecting their unused cap space year after year. So if we have $12.8M from last year, and say $10M this year, we could carry over $22.8M. A team can carry over some or all, or none of their unused cap space.
We have another $8.1M left over from 2011, plus our $12.8M from 2012, plus $19.4M we have for 2013. If I'm looking at this right we would have 8.1+12.8+19.4=$40.3M available before we even cut any players.
But wait a second, isn't this year also the first where teams HAVE to spend 90% of their cap space? The whole rollover thing can get out of control if they don't have a minimum salary cap. I'm just going off my memory here of what I read on the new CBA but I'm sure I might be wrong too.
They have to spend 89% of the cap which should be around $121M this year. They do not have to spend any of the rollover money.
I hope we spend some rollover money, but since we still have 8.1 from 2011, I don't like the chances of that happening
Its up to $12M now
