    The expected 2012 Salary Cap will be around $125 million and that includes the $1.5 million total, three player credits. In 2012, each club may "borrow" up to $1.5 million in cap room from a future year. Both these amounts would be repaid in future years.

    If we choose not to use them, it will drop the cap number to around $123.5 million.

    Beginning in 2012, salary cap to be set based on a combined share of "all revenue," a new model differentiated by revenue source with no expense reductions. Players will receive 55 percent of national media revenue, 45 percent of NFL Ventures revenue, and 40 percent of local club revenue.

    Let me point out 2 things:

    -Soliai's 12 million dollar franchise tag expires
    -we are under the cap as it is
    -no one is paying less for their Qb's then the Dolphins. (semi hyperbole, Moore at 2.5 million and Henne was at 500k)

    Does the $114.3 million cap figure including Solai's salary? Or is the cap $$ calculated excluding all expiring contracts?

    We should have signed Solai to a long term deal last yr. Unfortunately we didn't know which Solai was going to show up this yr.

    Solia isn't even on that list unless my eyes are fooling me.. And if we take his 12 mill off and cut bell... 18 mill off 110?? Is that what I'm seeing?

    It merely shows how much better Belichick and the personnel staff for the Patriots are when they had the team which had the lowest payroll in the AFC East, yet they won the division going away.
    For those who think the Patriots are going to decline starting next year, I just don't see it. They have five picks in the top one hundred in this years draft. They also have plenty of money under the cap to go out and bring in at least two top tier free agents.

    I see the Patriots being better next year than they were this year. The Dolphins may be able to contend with the Jets and the Bills in the division, but I just don't see anyone but the Patriots winning the AFC East next year and for several more years to come.
