    So, is he saying a decision has been made on Hopkins-Olsen or both? How else could we be $10-million under before McNair's contract is even done? I know you can't read his mind, I'm just thinking out loud here.

    I've been thinking all along that if we release Hopkins and Olsen and work a more cap friendly deal for McNair in addition to a couple of other more minor moves, we could be looking at $15-20-million in cap room. If we are interpreting what Reese is saying correctly, this is very disappointing news.

    I'm experiencing the same confusion.

    "Any new deals for QB Steve McNair and DE Kyle Vanden Bosch would be a part of that budget."

    So we reduce McNairs contract, leaving us $10 mil under, then sign those two, eating it right back up. That sounds bad.

    During last year's offseason, when the cuts were starting, Reese said this year we should be around $8 mil under the cap.

    Hopefully with signing Steve and hopefully KVB that won't be the end of our spenditures. Some of these cuts should take us several million under again. I can't imagine them stating the $10mil figure including cuts they haven't yet announced.

    Exactly. Plus, redoing McNair's contract would only make sense if it was to reduce how much it costs against the cap so I think his comment in that area was probably just cautious since they haven't actually hammered out a deal yet. I'm sure his contract will give us more space.. not less.

    any new deal for McNair makes it sound like he is a Free Agent, that is what is confusing.
  7. Reese can't be entirely honest with us. He can't come out and say we're going to have $20M free if the only way to do it is to cut Olson, Hopkins, and Thompson.
