    Default The fluidity of the Salary cap

    Boy this is gonna be interesting

    First i will say i used two sites for the
    Spotrac : http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/seattle-seahawks/cap/
    Overthecap https://overthecap.com/salary-cap/seattle-seahawks

    Total NFL Cap 177,747,270

    The NFL allows teams to count their top 51 contracts up until the final roster is set up so for now we will go by those numbers

    Top 51 contracts 155,121,937
    I used Overthecap for these numbers as the have Dontae Johnsons contract figured in

    Dead Money 13,903,196
    I used the figures from Spotrac on this as a basis simply because they have more players on them including 5k from Boykin

    Draft Pool $1,692,964
    OK this is where it gets weird
    Spotrac has the estimated dollar value for the draft class per pick

    #18 $ 2,208,717
    #120 $ 644,247

    I wont bother to go on about the rest , but if you want you can look them up on the above link, its almost at the bottom of the page.

    The reason i wont go on is because they come in under the top 51 contracts , currently Seattle has 62 contracts and the 45th through 51st lowest player contract it at 630,000 .

    So to calculate the draft class money Seattle needs is

    # 18 $2,208,717
    + #120 $644,247
    - Joey Hunt $630,000
    - Tanner McEvoy $630,000

    I used McEvoy and Hunt but there are a total of 6 with contracts at $630,000

    Of course we know this will change as John loves to trade down but this is what we have (right now) so i am going with it

    Total Cap space
    177,747,270 Cap space with rollover
    155,121,937 Current top 51 contracts
    .13,903,196 Dead Money
    ...1,692,946 Draft class

    Real (current) Cap space 6,913,143

    This does not reflect Janikowski's contract as I cant find anything on it.

    Sea Bass Is in an interesting issue here

    So when his numbers come in he will bump another $630,000 contract into the below top 51 contracts. So in essence his contract will for cap purposes in the offseason will be X - 630,000 .
    The Seahawks have kicker Jason Myers under contract at 705,000 But if he does beat out Myers you can knock off 705,000 of the cap .

    As I said before , The cap is really a rough estimate of what you have because it can be manipluated in so many ways and it really will come down to the final cuts to see where the team is But for now we have a good estimate of what can be done .

    well geee theres NO extension so no this is what the team has. So do you count something you DONT have, know you DONT have, and are not going to have unless you come to an agreement ?

    Seriously...... Please tell me your kidding because i cant believe you can be this dense. No seriously . This is where the team is at in the salary cap with out Davis and Janikowski..... When and if Thomas signs an extension thats when it gets added to the cap not before..... If you know of any magical way this happens whenotherwise ... PLEASE let me know..... I would so want to know.

    Disregard... I did use otc numbers w this contract ... Deeerp. So the total cap is still 6.9 without Janikowski"s and Davis's contracts.

    Does that include Russel Wilson's future extension and contract for when he is 40?

    Sebastian Janikowski 1 Yr 1.6 M base 600 k prorated 400 K roster 1.615 M cap hit
    Austin Davis 1 Yr 790 K base 90 k prorated 720 k cap hit

    So let do some math
    1.615 < seabass
    + 720 Davis
    2.335 M
    - 630 k
    - 630 k contracts sliding under the top 51
    1.075 Cap space used

    ..6,913,143
    - 1.065.000

    5,848.123 Cap space (Post draft)

    I wish Hillary was running our cap space. We win like three Super Bowls and then s*** would hit the fan.
