Clear up a few misconceptions - Some questions and answers with Anderw Brandt

So our cap will be higher than most teams. No reason to not spend Pioli and Hunt! What happens to all that unspent Cap room? The new CBA allows teams to carry forward unused Cap room. Thus, some teams will be bringing over $20 million of 2011 Cap room with them into 2012, adjusting their Cap upwards by that amount. Which teams will have the most Cap room entering into 2012? Jacksonville, Kansas City and Tampa Bay (Don’t let Jack Del Rio, Todd Haley or Raheem Morris read this:) An interesting Manning tidbit - Chiefs CANNOT trade for him: What about Peyton’s contract? Manning and agent Tom Condon leveraged a contract that forces the Colts to decide on Manning before the start of the 2012 League Year. You mean they can’t trade Peyton? No. Manning is due a $28 million option bonus due five days prior to the start of the 2012 League Year, on March 8th. The start of the 2012 League Year and trading is March 13th. Thus, the Colts have to either pay Manning $28 million – which means they will keep him for the foreseeable future – or not pay him, which means he will become a free agent available to sign with any team.
