    Curious to know how our cap would be before free agency starts

    Start with 17,

    add 14 for Carson,

    add 6 million for Iupati.

    3.5 million for AD

    Veldheer 6.9 million is a possibility

    Bucannon 5th year option is set at 8 million which I think the team can reduce with a new contract

    Mauro 2.8 million is a possibility

    Dawson 3.5 million they can probably get a cheaper kicker

    Bethea 3.5 million, old and injured, could be a possibility

    There are other contracts they can play with too. I think they get to at least 45 million

    Nice. I think we'll have a good amount of money to work with. Now the question is, who to target? I think Veldheer is probably gone, so at least an OT and then we need some receivers. I'm still a fan of trying to bring in a guy like Terrelle Pryor on the cheap along with a couple of other vets to all compete. And draft a few guys. What we do on a higher value level depends on if Fitz retires, IMO.

    Maybe you haven’t watched Pryor. IMO, he stinks.

    Veldheer is reporting that he wants to play next year & he isn't having any thoughts of retiring.

    That doesn't mean the Cards won't cut him to save cap space or try to re-work his deal.

    I watched him play pretty heavily with the Browns and Redskins. He's pretty decent for what the price should be and fills a need as a guy with speed and size. He's better than anything we have on our roster right now aside from Fitz (Chad Williams and JJ Nelson). He could compete for #2 or settle in as the #3.

    Palmers net will be about $8mill due to his dead cap space.

    Pryor has skillet hands and runs lazy routes. He has one of the highest drop % in the league.
