Okay, all this talk of us being so close to the cap--

Is that counting the transition tag price for Starks; or NOT counting the transition tag price?

IE, are people figuring our cap by assuming that we'll have to pay him 7 mil+, or do we just have 1 million WITHOUT counting that offer?

As soon as we t-tagged Starks, he counted for the full $7M.  That would only come off if we rescinded the offer, another team signed him, or we were able to sign him to an extension that would alter that cap amount.  

Short version: the sooner we extend Max, the better cap sitch we'll have.

However, the FO may not want to rush to pay, and see if any teams do push a contract his way.  If not, we may get him at a still lower price.  Not sure where the break-even in terms of waiting versus savings, but I think it's gotta be close.

Makes sense...clearly it handcuffs us for now b/c we can't do much without some cap relief.  But, if a big offer doesn't come in for Starks (and I don't anticipate one as big as his current tag), then we can obviously lower the offer.

Plus, we have the right of first refusal under the transition tag, correct?

Right.  With these recent signings, I have to think we're about tapped.  So expect the FO to git 'er done, so to speak.

Our BSGs capologist, No Limit, has updated the cap room figure to what he feels is a very accurate number (all incentives and signings accounted for).  The magic number, with the Starks whammy in place, is $944,000.
