We are inches away from football season again!
We now have a clearer picture of what the new C.B.A. will be and it looks good for the Raiders. The Raiders will actually be in the running for Nnamdi Asomugha because "dead money" won't count toward the salary cap.
On NFL Network, Jason LaCanfora said, "Teams will have to spend at least 90 percent of the cap in cash and won't be able to play with dead money as they have in the past."
So that leaves the Raiders at $103.2 million in players' salaries as of now.
The salary cap is set at $120 million with a $3 million exemption to sign one player. But to bring back Asomugha, there will still have to be some cuts to make room to bring in additional help.
Therefore, the Raiders will have their healthy share of players on the roster bubble.
