Cap Raising - Opinions Okay, I did some progressions in offline franchise mode with my Lions and did the upgrades to my stats on an offline capbook. I did this in five separate progressions. On average in those 5 progressions, my cap room reduced by 10 million dollars. This is after I took the cap hits off, so my average cap room (after cap penalties are taken off) is about 38 million dollars. This is before I do offseason cuts. Right now I have, after cap hits are removed, just under 50 million in cap space (49.875 is official I believe). With this in mind, I would suggest a small cap increase to allow for progressions. I would suggest each year we increase the cap by 5 million dollars. This keeps in line with NFL salary cap progression (which ups by a few million each year for inflation purposes), and isn't so crazy as to allow a lot of stupid cap space available to the lower tier teams (like myself). With the increase in the cap I propose, I'd have, on average, 43 million to spend on FA before my obligatory cuts. After those cuts (I've been planning in case you can't tell lol), I'll have about 50 million to spend. Considering my talent pool I have versus others, that's not crazy. I anticipate the average cap space will be in the 20-25 million dollar range. That's enough to bid on good talent in most cases. So, in short, raise cap 5 million. What do you guys think?
