We love “over the cap” – a web site that attempts to explain how NFL teams operate and how they leverage the economics of NFL contracts to construct teams and increase (or not) their chances of success. It is also ironic that the main guy running the site is a Jets fan because the Jets generally fail to take his advice and do everything wrong.
In a disturbing but seemingly accurate summary of the Bears’ offseason and turnover on their roster…
|Snaps Lost||Quality Snaps Lost||Quality ST Lost||Avg. APY Lost||Avg. Rank|
This has to qualify as one of the oddest offseasons of all time. The Bears were relatively average in their turnover despite having a terrible team last season and went out and signed an expensive free agent quarterback and drafted a top QB but sold off their best receiver. This has all the makings of a front office giving a head coach enough rope to hang himself so that their hands are clean when they fire him next season. When final rosters are set and we revisit the snaps gained and lost I expect everything to cancel out except for Glennon. If Glennon fails expect wholesale changes in 2018 with Fox being the fall guy for 2017. I don’t know if that’s the way to run the team or not.
It is hard for me to improve on that, especially
