  1. Steven Nelson makes plea on Twitter: 'Don't hold me hostage' shortly before Steelers terminate his contract. Maybe he isn't a "process" guy. https://steelerswire.usatoday.com/2021/03/23/pittsburgh-steelers-steven-nelson-release-nfl/
  2. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Aristotle
  3. I had to look up their schedule. Besides the Division games they have: NFC West AFC North NO and WAS 17th game is KC. Can't see them over .500.
  4. It seems to me the new "variants" are causing this. I see this whole thing as being very fluid as the year progresses. The NFL is going to have to be adapting its rules just like the rest of the country.
  5. Yes you are correct. There always are players who currently are under the Top 51 who will make the team. It was my understanding that this was figured into the rules by only having the Top 51 during the offseason to compensate for having 53 on the final roster. It was implemented to get as close to a wash as possible. Of course this is all "team subjective". Some team end up with a little more cap some with a little less. One also has to be aware of the "dead money" when cutting these "over Top 51" players too. A player like Lamp ($1.06M which you used) has
  6. Well if we are going down THAT road then I will admit I get some pleasure from this regarding Green Bay and it's fans after 2 HOF QBs in a row.
  7. Iggles don't have the cap to sign him (and their 2nd round pick). I wonder if there is a player they are willing to deal. Anyone hear any rumors? sorry.
  8. I usually don't care much and just let these things play out but I got to admit this whole thing is getting pretty childish.
  9. I recently retired from a business that terminated employees for not wearing a mask. The NFLPA has bargained so that doesn't happen to it's members. Instead it bargained for the rules they now have. You can disagree with that all you want but it won't change it.
  10. Quote from last years article. PS has counted against the cap for years. Teams are allowed to pay a player a higher salary than the minimum, and this often happens if another team comes sniffing around a player. All practice squad salaries are counted under the team’s salary cap. https://dknation.draftkings.com/nfl/2020/9/4/21420151/2020-nfl-practice-squad-salary-rules-eligibility-size-roster-cuts-covid-19-coronavirus
  11. Once the season starts the Top 51 rule goes away and all players salaries (including PS players) counts against the cap.
  12. Yep. Now it will be down to hoping a good number of cuts make it through waivers and end up on the PS anyway. I have been waiting for @YoloinOhio to post the news for this season and I for one feel much better!
  13. After some quick calculations the PS (after weekly callups) will cost teams around $3M in cap. Bills $9M in space right now is more like $6M. FWIW.
  14. Awesome. So pretty much the same as last year if I remember correctly?
