    How would Pats be affected by proposed salary cap rules?

    These proposed changes really clash with Kraft/BB's style of picking up no names/has beens for great value. I couldnt see the patriots start dishing out huge contracts, and to who? I feel like this "extra" money with be used to extended current contracts like Mankins and I think Mayo's gonna get a big extension this season. Defintly deserves one

    I find it incredible the "employees" are dictating to the employer how much revenue must be paid to them and, on top of that, to tell them they HAVE to spend a certain amount of millions in salary.  Wouldn't you love to tell your employer that?

    I hope they make all teams spend to the cap.  That means no more $20 mill under for us.

    yes yes, youve made your opinion very known on this board.  but as we all know its not a mcdonalds employee asking for a cut, this is the product asking for what they think theyre worth (however the owners started the lockout, but both sides are posturing jack@$$e$).

    regardless, im pretty sure the pats spend to the cap most years anyway.  not tons of huge money contracts, but many smaller and fairer ones

    Question: If the Pats spend to the cap and injuries occur to major players, will that leave any cap room to add replacements?

    Your not replacing a major player with another major player in season.  You will be getting a practice squad player or unsigned veteran for what equates to a bag of Donuts.

    I'm sure they will include a clause that if a player gets injured they are allowed certain cap flexibility while the player is injury. Something like an adjustment to the injury system which you can put players on a 4 game, 8 game, or season ending IR and get a percentage of that players salary (based on games missed) to be used for a replacement player during that time period

    If you were one of a group of 1,500 people in the world that could help your company make 9 billion dollars, then I think you'd have better leverage than you probably have at your current job.

    Last year was the only year the Pats stayed way under the cap and that was in anticipation of a lower salary cap this year. By doing this they would not have to cut any players and be in prime position to sign veterans that will now be desperate for a jon since free agency will be a free for all. Here's a real good patriots site 60maxpowero.com They have some good stuff
