The Vikings, who entered the free-agent signing period more than $30 million under the NFL's $85.5 million salary cap, are now about $10 million under..http://www.grandforks.com/mld/grandforks/sports/football/nfl/minnesota_vikings/11196403.htm

With that in mind, have we reached the salary "minimum"?

Does anyone know which of the free agents we signed got roster bonuses and which got regular signing bonuses. It would be interesting to know because if the majority of them were roster bonuses, next year we will once again be way under the cap. Which is always nice, even if we don't need to sign anyone.

We have to leave a little bit in there for our draftees.

I don't know much bout how the salary cap works. If we use the rest of that 10 million cap space. How much would we have next season or is that impossible to tell? If someone could explain it to me i'd greatly appreciate it cuz then i'll do better in Madden 2004 LoL

i would say its impossible. something could happen, we could have guys leave, we sign more guys, etc etc.

Yes, $12.4 million under is the min.

I expect us to sign our draft picks and get a vet that gets cut june 1st.

wow i definetly don't think we are spending anymore now that we have first rounders come our way. It is probably good not to spend if there isn't any quality out there so we can do it again next year.

I have one question, we have tendered offers to a couple restricted free agents like willie offord and b-will, and if teams want them they have to pay the price(3rd rounder for offord an 1st for b-will) anyway the ? is do those offers already count towards the 10 mill under or will the 10 mill take a hit when they are officially signed
