One change on May 20th to the estimated roster

Now that Eric Beverly has been signed I had to make a correction to my estimated roster for 2007. I also added a column of alternate choices... these are players that "could" make the team IF they outplay the player I have figured as being on the roster to their immediate left. That'll make more sense if you visit the roster page.

My May 4th estimate of the 2007 Lions roster.

Please visit this site to view it, the blog won't hold the columnar format.

Good Cap News

I received new information today concerning all the draft picks contracts from last year (2006 draft). It contained detailed info on signing bonuses, workout bonuses and salaries. Most of my information was fairly close except for one item I was unaware of. Earnie Sims apparently met some kind of escalator clause and received his 2nd signing bonus payment ($8 million) and that lowered his annual salaries for the duration of the contract. Based on this new information, I recalculated the cap hit for Sims (and the rest of the draft class of 2005) and it increased available cap space in 2007 by $2 million.
