Packers make error in cap space

If true no more FA I would think


How much more in-f'in-ept does Murphy have to be before he is shit canned?  Really killing it there ol' Murph.  Good thing you kept Vice President of Jockstrap Acquisition and Implementation on staff!

Pretty much done with FA.  Didn't need Breeland anyways.  Who needs solid depth and rotation with Clay?

I don't know that I'd go off yet, Henry.
It makes little sense to me; the Packers have managed the salary cap very well since it began and it's hard to imagine a $20M-$30M "miscalculation".
Also, who 'discovered' this? Was the team notified by the league, or was it strictly in-house? Unless a "source" has paperwork related to either, it's dubious.

If it turns out to have any truth, I'll hold Murphy for you while you drop-kick him right square in the nuts.

So Silverstein saying "I'm starting to hear"  means someone has to be incompetent? 

1) Breeland, which would have appeared to be the easiest and most logical signing walks for a 1 year contract with KC.  

2) Packers and Giants safety basically just completely walk away from negotiations

3) The fact this story, even if it isn't entirely correct, shouldn't even arise in the middle of FA.  It just seems weird that real time reporting would become an issue this year when the Packers hit FA hard.  Maybe Silverstein is out of practice.  Maybe Dwight is out of practice.

Silvy went back and checked the numbers. Shouldnโ€™t you double check the numbers BEFORE you put a story out there? Sounds like someone from the Packers called and told him he was a ****ing idiot and he ****ed up his math. 

So they had ~$36M before the offseason, allocated roughly $23M to new FA additions and have $13M left...the facts everyone has been working under the entire time. Silvy thought he was breaking a huge story, turns out he just didnโ€™t carry the 3 when he was โ€œchecking the numbersโ€.
