    We have 60mil in cap space and another easy 20mil we can open up cutting old underperforming players. That is way more than enough to sign tanny, henry, conk and ryan. Not that I think we keep all 4.

    Yea, close. We have 57M and can free up about 18M by cutting dion, wake, succop, and delanie. Leaves us with 75M and 18 dudes to sign.

    Tannehill ~ 22M
    Henry ~ 16M
    Conklin ~ 15M
    Ryan ~ 12M
    Total ~ 65M

    That leaves us with 10M to sign more 14 players. I dont think I'd call it "plenty".
    UNLESS these contracts are back loaded, then we should be fine. But that hasnt really been the JRob way.

    Ryan probably isn’t coming back, we have a lot tied up in that area of the field

    But those likely won’t be their cap hits this year. The cap hits will be a good bit lower. But still, it is a larger percentage of our cap space so I doubt we keep all 4.

    They most likely will be I would assume. And like I said, we have the cash to do it not that I thought it would happen.

    Honestly don't think we have the OLINE or the Social Security Payments in order to keep Brady upright....

    That 65mil won't be a hit all at once. They can spread that out over the next few years to lessen the blow. Jrob can essentially cut that number in half and still have room to sign 1-2 players in FA.

    That's true, you just cant be too aggressive with that strategy like the Jags were when signing every big name free agent that was willing to play for them. You backload the contracts a bit, enough to account for the increase in cap that is to come, but if you overdo it, you handicap yourself a few years down the road.
