  1. The majority of my posts are still other peoples' articles just to help keep the message board informed. However, Goober has been doing a very good job lately of posting pertinent articles on the board that my need to do so has been greatly decreased. In the past, I have posted my own opinion on things like projected comp picks, and available salary-cap, but OvertheCap is doing such a good job with these issues now that I no longer need to do so. Good grief, I think that I have become marginalized.
  2. Never got banned, but Shiney issued me a Warning back in 2009. Not quite sure why I got warned, but it still remains on my Profile to this day.
  3. Packers sign QB Kurt Benkert during rookie minicamp tryout Michael David Smith Sat, May 15, 2021, 2:56 PM For the second time this week, the Packers have signed a quarterback. Kurt Benkert, who was brought in for a tryout during this weekend’s rookie minicamp, has signed with the team, he announced on Twitter. Benkert spent the last three years in Atlanta, mostly on the practice squad, and has never played in a regular-season NFL game. He played in college at both East Carolina and Virginia. Quarterback Blake Bo
  4. Although McCarron's cap-hit is $987,500 for 2021, his total contract amount is $1,212,500, composed of $$1,075,000 Base Salary and $137,500 Bonus. The reason that his cap-hit is lower than his total contract amount is due to the Qualifying Vet Minimum Rule. Under this special rule, vet players with expired or terminated contracts, who have 4 or more years experience, and sign a one-year contract at vet minimum + no more than $137,500 bonus, are considered "Qualifying Players" and receive special cap treatment. The cap-hit for a "Qualifying Player" = the Vet Minimum for a 2-year player ($85

  6. We hope and pray that's all he has to do.
  7. According to OvertheCap, the Falcons are now $602,351 under the cap, after McCarron's contract. With a projected cap-hit amount of $6,489,368 needed to sign the Rookie class, it appears that the Falcons will need to come up with additional cap-space of at least $5,887,017, assuming that OvertheCap's amounts are correct. https://overthecap.com/salary-cap/atlanta-falcons/
  8. According to OvertheCap, AJ McCarron's contract is just for 2021 and his cap-hit is only $987,500. https://overthecap.com/player/a-j-mccarron/3103/
  9. That's true that only the top 51 count against the salary cap, but only up until the season starts. Once the regular season starts then: "Do all player count against their team’s Salary Cap? Yes, once the season has started, all players – whether on the 53-man roster, Injured Reserve (IR), Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) or the Practice Squad (PS) – count against the team’s Salary Cap. The only players that do not count against the Salary Cap are players who are on one of the NFL’s exempt lists." https://russellstreetreport.com/salarycap/nfl-salary-cap-faqs/#:~:text=Do all
  10. FalconsWire used Overthecap's existing available cap, rather than Spotrac. It's been my experience that Overthecap's amounts are generally more accurate than Spotrac.
  11. No not yet. Neither Overthecap nor Spotrac have any contract amounts for AJ McCarron yet. Atlantafalcons.com has released no news article regarding the contract amounts either.
  12. The Falcons are projected to need $6,489,368 of cap space to sign its 2021 drafted rookie class. Details and calculations as follows: Projected cap hits for the 2021 Atlanta Falcons rookie class Deen Worley Tue, May 4, 2021, 1:32 PM Now that the NFL draft has been completed, the Falcons must find a way to clear even more cap space in order to sign their nine selections. In total, the 2021 NFL draft class will cost just north of $13 million. However, the effective cap hit is a more accurate indicator in determining the re
