Thread: Raiders Projected To Be 7 Million Over The Cap For 2021

  1. #11
    I'm not worried about the salary cap. We have way too many players that can be jettisoned without missing a step on the field. Brown is a RT. No way is a RT worth that much money. Add to the fact that he's missed half the games so far since he's been a Raider. His salary is currently at $14M. His track record suggests that he can't stay healthy. At 380 lbs, I can see why. Parker isn't the answer at RT. However, I'm sure we could find someone else for a lot cheaper which provides salary cap savings. Williams' contract is $11M. Not worth anywhere close to that amount. The good news is there's very little dead money for this free agency.

    Denzelle good for example, 3 years 15 million, 1 million base, 6 million signing bonus, 3 million cap hit, but he gets 6 million the day he signs. 4 million base in 22, 4 million base in 23. So he becomes a 6 million cap hits in 22 and 23.
    half the league is way over OR just under the cap and thats without knowing how much the cap is gonna get adjusted lower,i think the days of teams over paying are over with after 2021,how in the hell does a team projected to be 95 over the cap work and lets not forget you gotta have people under contract to field a team,many of these teams are avg around 35 only or lower UNDER CONTRACT currently

    Yes, agreed! Both these guys will need to restructure or they will not be here next season. Itís that simple. I donít see Brown renegotiating, but we shall see.

    Brown is not a pro bowl player and is injured a lot. I don't see any team breaking the bank to sign him.

    We may end up using our first draft pick on Brown's replacement.

    Covid 19. Salary cap is based on revenues. With empty stadiums a huge chunk of the revenues disappeared. Cap has risen annually about 10-11 million, so without Covid, 2021, we're looking at 209 million, instead it's projected to be 175 million.
