    2013 Raiders salary cap

    Compare to last year's $22 million over the salary cap, the Raiders are not that bad spot this upcoming season. Raiders are $4.5 million over the salary cap. I expect more cuts, more restructures and few free agent acquires AGAIN.

    The 2013 cap has been discussed in a previous thread. Metallica0688, I believe, has the most accurate cap figure with us being ~$10.3 million over the projected salary cap.

    Link to 2013 Salary cap thread

    You're right about expecting few big name free agent acquisitions again.

    Finally!

    This, ladies and gentlemen, is a true rebuilding process. Shed salaries. Let guys walk. Signing cheap talent. Draft smart. Build up the trenches. It will take 2-3 more years before we see real progress, but there's hope.

    The previous 10 years we had the record of a rebuilding team, without the direction. We wasted money on veterans who didn't fit. We drafted all wrong. There's no reason a bottom 5 team should have had the least cap space.

    In a couple seasons or so after we have built up our roster with young studs and depth you'll see some veteran free agents sprinkled in to the mix. As opposed to a veteran roster with an occasional draft pick sprinkled in.

    God I hope Reggie is able to draft well. It's our only hope.

    There is a AFC WEST article from ESPN that just came out with the salary projections and it mentions how the Raiders are one of couple of teams that are over the salary. I tried to post a link but due to lack of post I am not allowed to post it yet

    Read the thread linked above. All of the info is broken down well by several posters, especially Metallica.

    The bottom line is that the Raiders are, as of now, over the cap, as they have been every season since I can remember. They will, however, shed some fairly significant contracts with cuts and/or restructures (Seymour, McClain, DHB, etc.)

    They are in a better positin than last year, but still not in a position to go after many guys or perhaps any high priced players, nor should they. The focus should be on drafting well and identifying underpriced and undervalued FA role players who can help, provide depth, and even continue to grow into better players.

    Paying high priced players is generally paying for past production (the Al Davis way that rarely worked). The Raiders need to try and pay for future production.

    From Bill Williamson - ESPN

    The focus is on 2013 for all but eight teams in the NFL.

    Teams will soon be readying for free agency. To get a feel for what teams will have to spend in free agency, ESPNís John Clayton has the current salary-cap numbers.

    Please remember all salary-cap numbers are fluid and things change. But this gives you a working idea of where each team stands.

    In the AFC West, the best team is in the best cap standing. The Broncos, who host Baltimore on Saturday in the divisional playoff round, are $18.5 million under the cap. They should be able to add some solid pieces if they wish. They do have to either extend or give the franchise tag to standout left tackle Ryan Clady. That will take up some space.

    The Chiefs continue to be in good cap health. It is $16.1 million under the cap. It has free agents, receiver Dwayne Bowe, left tackle Branden Albert and punter Dustin Colquitt, to deal with. I think Albert and Colquitt are more likely to return to Kansas City at this point, but it has flexibility.

    San Diego is $8.7 million under the cap. It should be enough to get a couple of starters. The Chargers need the most help on the offensive line.

    Meanwhile, Oakland is one of 10 teams currently over the salary cap. Oakland is $4.5 million over the cap. It was severely over the cap last season. This year, the Raiders, who will have to address punter Shane Lechler, tight end Brandon Myers and linebacker Philip Wheeler in free agency, will still have to make a lot of tough decisions and will have to tweak some contracts again. But they should be able to do a little more than they did last year.

    This is how you know you've done a poor job of managing the cap. The best team in the division is 18.5 MILLION UNDER the cap and one of the worst teams is 4 MILLION OVER the cap. One spends and drafts wisely and has a ton of money and a chance at a superbowl, while the other throws draft picks and money around and sits at home every year. Glad to see this garbage finally changing. I can take losing for a while if it means getting this horrible draft and cap history behind us.

    These are salaries not cap hit. The Cap Hit takes the players salary plus bonuses that have been pro-rated. For example, you have Tyvon Branch salary at $6 million but with bonuses his cap hit is $10.9 million. Also, why is Seymour not on that list? If you are talking about players that are effecting the 2013 cap, the Seymour, assuming his contract is voided, will still account for $5million of so against the 2013 cap (depending on the details/date of the void). Darren McFadden is also not on that list.

    There are some critical dates where the Raiders have to be under the cap. The first is by the end of February.
    THE Raiders 2014 Draft Class:
    Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo
    Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
    Gabe Jackson, G, Mississippi State
    Justin Ellis, NT, Louisiana Tech
    Keith McGill, DB, Utah
    Travis Carrie, CB, Ohio
    Shelby Harris, DE, Illinois State
    Jonathon Dowling, FS, Western Kentucky

    If I'm Reggie I look at next year knowing it will be similar record wise unless we catch some breaks here and there. I let mark know we are rebuilding and to be patient and then I make every larger salary player available for next to nothing 2 weeks before the draft. I'm talking McFadden, huff, dhb, Palmer, kelly, everyone who has a contract that is not performing up to it is available for a nominal draft pick. You take those draft picks and parlay them into a solid young base for years to come. This is the only way to get rid of these contracts without accelerations and dead money. Time to pay the piper so we can be better for the long term.

    All I care about this offseason is that we get rid of Seymour, DHB, and Kelly's contracts. I have a bad feeling we may keep Kelly because thats a lot of dead money to get all done in one offseason, but I'm hoping we can rid all 3 of these players. I believe Seymours contract can be voided but still will cost the Raiders quite a bit of a cap hit. Ofcourse if DHB wants to take a $6 million paycut to get around $2million then i would be happy to keep him. But I dont think he will do it. And fukc restructuring , dont do it Reggie. I don't care if we dont make a splash in free agency. Get rid of bad contracts this offseason then we get even better free agents the following offseason. We're not going to do much in 2013 anyway. Build for the long term, not the Al Davis style.

    BAAAAAZING !!!!!!!
