As of right now I have (unofficially) Bills with about $18M of salary cap space available, about $6M of which will be needed for rookie pool

why do these beat writers need to guess when there are tools like Spotrac out there?

So basically we could have tagged Gilmore and restructured Clay while filling out the roster with UDFA / vet min / camp cuts (aka the quality of guys we are looking at anyways).

We can restructure Glenn and Dareus too if need be. The Bills are fine in terms of cap space.

Because at this time of the year, not every contract structure has been announced. Spotrac and OverTheCap can only add what is known.

Absolutely.  The problem is the dwindling number of guys to give it to who'll make a big impact.  Losing Gilmore really hurts and it's magnified by not giving the money to 2-3 other guys who clearly upgrade positions.  That being said, if they managed to bring back Zach Brown and sign Sheard, I do think it's been a decent FA period.

Yes we could have so that tells you they didn't want to pay him.

Now that B. Tate's contract is accounted for, Bills have aprx $10.1M cap space. About $6.4M needed for rookies. Then $2.4M avail added 6/1.

$10.1M - $6.4M + $2.4M = $6.1M. Wonder how much we're using from our 2018 cap space to lure Zach Brown.

From Sal C.

 

Here’s the math (using close estimates):
 
Open roster spots: 29
 
Current cap space available: $12.5 million
 
Needed for draft picks: $4.8 million
 
Available to sign free agents: $7.7 million

$27.4M right now. That doesn't include 5 of the recent signings. That'll reduce it somewhat, though they shouldn't be big money deals. Rookie pool will be about $6M. Then there's always a few million saved for use during the season. Let's see where we are when the dust settles from those deals.

That is a little misleading because the rookies will only count about $3 million to the cap since they will push players 49, 50, and 51 out of their slots, taking their salaries with them.
