With larry foote being released and Jason taylor still out there I really hope that pioli throws some money there way. Both of these guys could come in and upgrade the defense.Foote could play ILB and move DJ to outside, If we got taylor he could go outside and DJ could stay inside. Im not sure that tamba can be very effective at LB, but i hope he can prove the doubters wrong like he has his whole life.
That aside we still have alot of cap room that has TO BE SPENT. After looking at the numbers and im not 100% sure on them we have at least 8 million to spend.
The salary cap is 127 million and 86.4%(not positive) has to be spent which is a little over 109 million. It was recently reported that we had about 31 million in cap space(and could be more if cassel signs his deal) this puts us at 96 mil. And the NFL has alloted us 5.5 mil to spend on our rookie class this year. so...
109.7-101.5=8.2 that we have to spend.
I know management can do alot with wieghting contracts so they effect more in certain years then others. But as of now we have 8.2 million to spend. I believe pioli still has some work left to do and I think he will sign one of his biggest free agents soon.
Best case scenario is that pioli trades for boldin and signs foote, both moves would give us a great chance of winning the AFC west.
So what would you guys do with this 8.2 million left that we have to spend.
