    Can someone explain to me why in the hell do I have $75.3M in cap space yet I only have access to $19.9M of it. Please enlighten me.

    Cap space = how much room you could potentially spend on the roster

    Funds= how much you actually have to spend at this time.


    This if you have 25mil to spend your contracts can only cover 25mil. So if player X wants a fat contract and you can't give him 28mil in bonuses you might have trouble signing guys.


    Kinda sucks for you new guys who didn't start the season in the league , but not much anyone can do about it to my knowledge.

    Does that only count toward the bonus money? Or is base salary included?

    I think (key word is think) it is combo of the entire bonus and 1st year salary. Which would be due upfront if you were to sign player and then cut him or whatnot.

    From what I can tell you just pay all the bonus money up front. Any idea if franchise tags come out of the available funds? Googles not helping.

    In case anyone was wondering it takes half of the value of the tag out of your funds.

    that is owner mode for you which is dumb. Ea set a value for each team I assume and for the raiders was just 30 million or so. Upgraded a couple things during the season, but I don't think the raiders could of taken advantage of the entire cap by default from what it looks like.

    I believe real NFL teams are required to use a % of their cap?in anycase NFL teams probably have capital available when needed.
