    The point of your post if I understood it was last season you gave them 2-3 years, which I don’t understand but because some of you seem to bank everything off Henry, I guess I can see your point, but then you said it’s now a window turned into a small crack. Before the draft, before free agency, before the season starts, it’s just a small crack. Coming off a 11-5 season. A team on the rise not the decline. It’s it’s now a crack?

    Did you just say specifically it’s because of COVID and Bowen?

    The cap is because of Covid, yes. The cap is based off of profit, because they were not allowed to fill stadiums because of covid protocols they lost profit. Usually the cap rises each year, this season not only will it not rise, nor stay the same, it actually drops. It is going to be difficult to keep pieces we need much less go out and add pieces we need.

    and Bowen... yes because defense wins championships, Bowen is terrible as a DC, so we wont be winning a championship.

    Is the new cap actually announced as lower? I thought this was still only speculation and total BS if true.

    No it hasnt, but its been pretty consistent for quite some time now.

    NFL increases minimum salary cap to $180 million in 2021

    Until the official cap is set, teams won't know exactly how much room they'll have to maneuver through free agency in 2021. At the very least, the new floor gives clubs a starting point to begin making plans ahead of the new league year, which opens on March 17.

    Not even a reason to play the freakin games is there? It’s just over. Before the draft, Free Agency, nada, zip nothing. Why try? Ole Amy should just slash payroll. We should trade Tannehill, Henry and Brown and just stock up on draft picks and do a total rebuild for 5 years from now, just stockpile those draft picks.

    I can see why you would want to do that, but that seems really dramatic to me. We still have a crack in the window, we should do our best to win while we can. Gonna be an uphill battle for sure, so I can understand your position, I just disagree with it.

    Just to clear up the thread then, lots of talk regarding a "lower" cap when in all likelihood, that was probably never on the table.
    At a minimum, as I expected, that Cap will at least stay the same.

    All the talk regarding the cap being lower is invalid. Cap wasn't getting lowered.
    That $5 mil in the article seems very reasonable. Less profits than normal but still massive amounts of profit. Cap increases a smaller amount than previous years.

    The salary cap was $198.2 million last year, so it’s going down $15-$20 million. That’s huge.

    The article posted says it was $175 mil and potentially increasing to $180 but I misread it. That is the MINIMUM cap.

    With a minimum cap raising, I can't see the actual cap decreasing at all, that would make no sense.
    So at a minimum, full expectations should be all around that the max cap is at least the same. Any talk of a drop doesn't really have any legitimacy.

    That wasnt the minimum from last season... last season the cap was 198million..
    usually, each season, the cap goes up around 10 mil.. so if this were a normal season, our cap would be around 208million for 2021-22.

    As of right this moment, the NFL has said it wont drop below 180mil.. As of a week ago they were saying it would not drop below 175mil.

    So they have raised the minimum of the upcoming season 5mil. There is a very small chance that it wont be decreased and stick around 198mil, but everyone with any knowledge doesnt think so. They are all predicting it goes down this year.
