    well lets see. the adjusted cap number this year is $138M, and we have over $130M in contracts right now. Do the math and $8M is your number

    I didn't watch the Bucs at all last season. Was Revis still awesome? I know he was coming off ACL surgery last year. Anyone really have knowledge of how effective he was last season?

    Yes Tampa was bad, but they have some greats on defense. Revis, Lavonte David, and Gerald McCoy were very impressive last year for Tampa.

    Noooooo

    Cut CJ today and we're over the cap $2M, we'd have to cut 2 players just to get under.

    Yes, but that includes the guys that will be free agents in a few hours. Or not? Am I looking at this wrong?

    Yea youre a little confused, but it is confusing. Let me help you out.

    The 2014 salary cap is set at $133M. We have just over $130M tied up in current players, this does not include Verner and other FA's. But the reason we have $8M to spend and not $3M is because we have $6M in carryover from the year before.

    Key point here. Gotta keep CJ til at least June 1st. Cutting Stewart, Stevens, and one more guy might put us in the Revis chase but we do have other needs.

    It isn't realistic to think we really have much of a shot at a Revis-like player, he's going to want big money again, and thats ok, we made out alright last year with our 2nd tier FA's, no need to over spend on 1 guy when you need 3 or 4 guys.
