http://espn.go.com/n...cap-130-million

 

according to sources the cap goes up 5% to 130 million which every team now gets  7 extra million to there salary cap so i guest the ravens go from 16 to 23 million which now they can really sign monroe and (hopefully) Pitta.

If true, this is awesome and we still could cut people to add to that.

That would be cool, although it probably will just mean the people we sign will cost more, because other teams have more to spend and compete with our offers. Good news none the less, ans the Cap should certainly go up because we know revenues are certainly not declining.

This actually probably gives us a chance to sign those FA's that were previously out of our range, I'm excited. We can afford to sign some veterans and draft some real blue chippers

Remember that ERFA/RFA tenders and draft pick allocation will still eat up a fairly large portion of our cap room.  Raising the cap up to $130M certainly helps, but remember that the available cap you see isn't necessarily going to be accurate since no one ever accounts for tenders and such.

If true, this is great news. With the amount of money the NFL as a business makes, the salary cap should be a lot higher. It's crazy that teams that draft well end up paying for it by not being able to re-sign their own talent.

Hopefully this helps to take care of Monroe.

We apparently had around 11.3 mil in cap room before the Suggs extension which saved 4.6 mil to get us to 15.9(all of this based of the previous projected 2014 cap of 126.3 mil). Now however with this news and the cap being 3.7 mil more than expected, we will have around 19.6 mil in cap room. Factor in the 3.2 mil from cutting McClain, the 1.6 mil from cutting Koch, and the 1.75 mil from cutting Leach and we would have around 26.15 mil in cap room if those cuts are made. Now there is some spending money. I think now, we could re-sign Monroe, resign Pitta, and now we have a good chance of bringing Daryl Smith back all while having money for the RFA tenders and draft picks and such.

We don't have anyone worth tendering this year.We might put an original round tender on Josh Bynes(if you can do that with an undrafted guy) but none of the other restricted guys are worth that much.Draft picks may take up $3-4 million though.I think I read that there is a set cap number that can be spent on them but I don't remember how much that number is.

but we do... Omar Brown, Josh Bynes, Adrian Hamilton, Anthony Levine, Brynden Trawick and Tandon Doss are worth tendering... or we'll be looking at FA/draft for half of the special team at least

I think Bynes, Hamilton, Brown and maybe Doss are worth tendering. Levine and Trawick? no thanks and i really wouldn't want bynes except for the fact his salary is low.

Levine and trawick have a year in the system and are good Special teams players.  They're good to keep around.

Aaron Wilson just tweeted that with the Suggs savings and increased cap, the Ravens will have approximately $20M in Cap Space... that's awesome!

That's great. If a team throws stupid money at Monroe it wouldn't hurt like it would have been to tag him. But we still need to sign him long term
