7-9 million are put in the rookie pool to sign all the new picks or undrafted FA's.
So basically out of that number you have 10 million dollars left, with the majority of that going towards resigning Smith and Newman.
It sounds big at first glance but when you have a young and talented team it shrinks down quick.

Is this Hobson spin or what?
I think about 25 teams shouldn't even show up to draft in April considering they can't sign their picks...
It's laughable what Mike does and gets away with from fans. He is using the 89% salary cap floor that rolls on a four year average and he is pocketing a ton of money. He's a genius and we are the fools like always.
Good teams cut dead weight like Jason Allen and Jamal Anderson and supplement their team with a decent KR, LB, or a safety. I don't want or need Mike Wallace.
And I remember this same extension junk from 05. It never quite happens so smoothly as Hobson tries to spin.
