Cash is on there.I dont think hartwell is on our books anymore we signed him 4 years ago.

Hartwell is on the list. We signed Hartwell to a pretty big deal. It is very possible that we still have dead money on him.

These have to be cap hits because we're obviously not paying Hartwell, (or Cash), a dime this year.

It would also make sense about Grady because we'll get his cap hit NEXT year. Same thing with Ovie. I think...

It also helps explain the Abraham number. We signed him last year so we're seeing the big hits THIS year.

That's the best I can make with these numbers. I'm thinking that since the Falcons are pretty low when it comes to national interest there may be some errors with this list.

This lists the monies actually received by the player last year, not their cap hits. Therefore, the players who received large signing bonuses in 2006 (which is pro-rated for cap purposes, but not for the purposes of this list) are the one who top the list.

That's why player like Abe and Drew Brees (who receives large signing binuses in 2006) are high on the list, and why Jimmy Williams (who - as a rookie - received a signing bionus in 2006) is above someone like Deangelo Hall.

It's funny how people would say Vick's contract was handicapping the team when Abraham is making 15m... Look at how many other QB's make more then him, but still have supporting casts... It's odd that their teams can surround them with talent, or afford their contracts with talent already on the team... but Vick's salary stopped the Falcons...

Brees 22m

Brady 16m

Palmer 15m

Carr 13m

McNair 12m

Favre 10m

Manning 10m

A. Smith 9m

Culpepper 8m

Vick 8m

And that's not calculating all the teams that have other players paid more... Including the Colts who have three over 10m...

Suddenly 8m doesn't seem so bad... Even if it does go up later... It obviously wasn't the reason this team wasn't putting talent on the team...

Bingo.

The other thing to keep in mind is that this sort of data fluctuates wildly from year to year. Some of you might remember that we had the highest payroll in football last year. We're already down to middle of the pack now. If we spend money on free agents next year, we'll be back in the top 5 again.

Team salaries bounce up and down so much year by year pending on cuts, contracts, and FA. Especially individual contracts. etc. When a player signs a long term contract, there is always guaranteed money. But for the most part these contracts now a days are so end loaded a team has no choice but to cut them or let their team salary soar by the millions each years. That is why football is great. It ensures there are no such teams like the Yankees/Mets/Red Sox in football. Also making it rare to see decade lasting dynasties.
