As you can see the Patriots have commited just over $56 million dollars in cap room to their top 10 players. Leaving around $63 million in adjusted cap room to fill out the remainin pieces of our roster. Now take a look at the Colts:

  1. Peyton Manning – 17.8 million
  2. Marvin Harrison – 12.0 million
  3. Bob Sanders – 8.2 million
  4. Reggie Wayne – 6.7 million
  5. Robert Mathis – 6.6 million

  7. Dwight Freeney – 5.8 million
  8. Jeff Saturday – 5.2 million
  9. Raheem Brock – 4.7 million
  10. Dallas Clark – 3.0 million

They have committed over $76 million in cap room, leaving them $47 million dollars in adjusted cap room. (the Colts have $123 million compared to the $119 million for the Pats)

This really shows how the Patriots strive to have the best guys in the 30-53 man positions on their team, while teams like the Colts go more top-heavy with starting talent. Which way works better? We shall see in about 8 or 9 months.

    Pretty soon the Pats will have to dish out big contracts to Wilfork and Mankins.and if they want to keep Hobbs, James Sanders, and Kaczur, they will all be getting big raises as well.
