Can someone explain the difference please or tell me where to find the difference
Please pay attention to the XFN site and the salary cap number for your team. That is the salary cap number you may not exceed.
There are two salary cap #'s that's my question. I am paying attention that's why i posed the question.
TMFL Salary Cap: $140,437,500
Salary Cap: $131,661,833
I could be wrong, but to me that says you have 9 mile of space.
That said, probably wrong.
One is your team's salary and the other is the current salary cap.
the 131,661,833 number is where your team currently stands.
The other number is the number you can not exceed.
It leaves you over 8 mil of playing room right now.
A couple of things you need to consider with the cap:
1) If you cut someone or trade someone, you are responsible for their signing bonus for the remainder of contract.
This number gets added to your NEXT year salary cap in FULL.
For example: say you have a QB that has 2.5 miliion bonus for the next 4 years and you decide to trade him..
You will take a 10 million cap hit in FULL on next years salary cap. Giving you 10 million less to spend next year.
2) If you want to trade someone that is currently a FA, you would need to sign him to a contract, and then trade him, which would cause you to take a cap hit. in those instances, you may want to strategically pay a low bonus, higher salary to protect you cap.
3) Salary cap usually increases at a slight margin from year to year. I believe this year we took a 7 % increase.
4) If you sign a FA that is 84 or over and is less than 30 you need to have a signing bonus that is equal to at least 40% of total contract.
Example: 4 year contract that is worth 35 million - 25 million in regular salary and 10 million in signing bonus
Hope that helps.
