Updated Cap Number and Some Hilarity

New, comments

First of all, per Kevin Seifert of the Star-Tribune, the Vikings have more FA money to spend than a lot of people thought.

The Vikings' salary cap space, widely reported at $12.4 million last month, will jump to nearly $30 million by tonight because of incentive calculations and other pre-market maneuvers. In addition to releasing Smoot and possibly Wiggins, the Vikings also are attempting to reach a contract extension with defensive end Darrion Scott -- a restricted free agent -- and would like to restructure the contract of tight end Jim Kleinsasser, whose base salary is $2.9 million for 2007.

Awesome.  Just more proof that the Vikings have the single best cap guy in the business, and even more reason to try to get our hands on Eric Moulds, IMO.

Oh, and now the hilarity, supplied by the folks over at Pro Football Talk:


Word has reached PFT world headquarters of a rumored trade that would send Oakland Raiders receiver Randy Moss to the Green Bay Packers for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

We're told that the Raiders want a first-round pick for Moss, and that the Packers have countered with an offer of Rodgers, who was Green Bay's first round pick in the 2005 draft.

Stay tuned.  Though we never would have imagined that Moss and Packers quarterback Brett Favre could coexist, it looks like this one could indeed be going down.

Hilarious. . .a quarterback that's never going to amount to anything on the NFL level in exchange for a WR that's two years past his prime and quits on his team whenever it's convenient for him to do so.

The off-season is well and truly upon us, ladies and gentlemen.
