The minute detail for the salary cap is mind numbing. Manipulating the cap is key to the Redskins free agent acquisition strategy. For future reference, Running Redskins added "Salary Cap FAQ" to the blogroll to the right. The FAQ was prepared by Al Lackner at askthecommish.com.
The Redskins spend a lot of time manipulating the cap. Vinnie Cerrato is considered a cap master manipulator. We'd rather see the team put more resources in scouting draft choices they can sign for less, keep longer and grow into Washington stars, rather than buy some other team's stars. But, I rant.
The Redskins projected 2007 salary is $111.3 million. Team salaries in 2007 is capped at $109 million and the Redskins are trying to create cap space by reworking player contracts.
As you follow the team's salary cap moves and resist the latest free agent hype, refer to the Salary Cap FAQ to understand what's going on.
