    I considered the Pitta angle myself since he has yet to sign his tender. However, it's over $2M for the 2013 season so if they were to sign him long term you would think the early years would be more cap friendly and immediate cap relief wouldn't be all that necessary.

    If you are an older player you are going to have a tough time finding a team. I have a feeling that BA knew this was coming and planned accordingly. All the best to him and his family.

    Well, they did tender Webb and then sign him long term.

    Haloti & Luke are correct. This move saves us $326.7K to be exact when you account for rule of 51, which AW & Matt Zenitz aren't accounting or.

    As far as current cap space, we were 5.687M under before Huff (confirmed by BMoreRavor). Then 4.817M under the cap after Huff (5.687 - 1.350 + .480), and now 5.14M (4.817 + .807 - .480) under after the BA release.

    It's instantly factored in by the guy who was currently 52nd on our salary cap. That player's cap hit was 480K, hence subtracting 480k.

    Also noteworthy that if we do sign someone, the cap hit will be offset by the 480k that will go under the rule of 51 line.

    FWIW...here are the numbers from the NFLPA...

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    This is what I thought when I heard about it earlier today.

    Keep in mind we have 12 draft picks. We probably won't end up with 12 players but still we need open roster spots.

    Also, there is this from PFF

    Brendon Ayanbadejo, ILB, Baltimore Ravens
    As I mentioned back in Week 9, Dannell Ellerbe’s great play has helped the Ravens survive the loss of Ray Lewis. However, Baltimore has not coped as well the last two weeks without him. The Washington Redskins’ read-option running game has made many a linebacker look foolish, but on Sunday Brendon Ayanbadejo wasn’t outsmarted as much as he was outmuscled. He was too often mauled by any offensive lineman who reached him on the second level. On Washington’s second play from scrimmage, left guard Kory Lichtensteiger pushed Ayanbadejo seven yards downfield, at which point Alfred Morris flew past the pair for a 20-yard gain. The play set the tone for a game where Ayanbadejo frequently met the ball-carrier well past the line of scrimmage.

    That's interesting, we now have the least number of players under contract in the league. Big rookie influx coming? I'd say there will be several given legitimate shots to make the roster

    I'm assuming those numbers do not include all the tenders that haven't been signed yet.

    We already have plenty of room to re-sign McKinnie.

    Yes, true, but until that point arrives, it's merely a savings of $327k.

    As of right now, we do know that the 51st player is making $480k, so for now, that is all the true savings are. On the flip side, when you do sign a FA, the cap hit is not as bad as the first year cap value because you get to subtract the $480 off the total. For instance, when we signed Dumervil, he only changed our 2013 cap figure by $2.02 ($2.5 - the $480 of the player coming off the 51 man roster).
