I went and took a look. If you applied the trade cap to the current season, one team would be over the cap (Raiders) with two more currently at the cap (Broncos and Falcons). There have also been fewer trades overall than there were in season 1 last year. With the trade deadline a week away, it certainly doesn't look like the lack of a cap has made too much of a difference in either the volume or impact of trades.

For the record, here are just a few of the players who were traded last year under the cap, just in season one:
Jonathan Stewart
Josh Freeman
Earl Thomas
Marshawn Lynch
Adrian Peterson
Julius Peppers
Anquan Boldin
Daryl Smith
Brian Waters
Asante Samuel
Miles Austin
Brandon Carr
Drew Brees
Tracy Porter
Patrick Peterson
Devin Hester
Leodis McKelvin

Again, that's just from season one. All with the cap in place. :D


Facts.?....who uses facts....

But it made me feel better, lmao.


I'll be honest, I was surprised as well. Maybe we'll see an uptick in season 2, but thus far it really doesn't seem to have been an issue.

Unfortunately I wasn't keeping track in the trade log until season 2, but I just took a glance and it looks like 3 teams reached the cap in season 1:

Patriots (me)
Bucs (Tanabeo)
Ravens (MA)

No surprise on the first two, though I'd forgotten MA was so active in deals early on (trading away Rice and adding Peppers).

I meant I was surprised that there hasn't been more trading without the cap, not that a few of us had reached it (I knew I had as well).

Figured i'd just edit this and post my trade block:

Vincent Jackson: WR, 29, 89 OVR, 55 million over 5 years
Doug Martin: RB, 23, 6.80M over 4 years
Michael Bennet: RE, 26, 2.74M over 1 year

I'd like a MLB, CB or speedy WR. im also willing to trade picks

I've got the cap room to absorb him right now. If his contract ever becomes a problem, I can cut him without penalty since the Jets are still on the hook for the bonus. So it basically costs me a 4th to upgrade from Stanzi to Sanchez, if I ever need to cut him it shouldn't be too hard to find a Stanzi-level replacement.

i love how the real jets are in such denial about him, he is terrible n i love it. He does seem to play his best against the pats but still, his awfulness against everyone else outweighs that. If i was rex id cut the shit n lobby for his release cuz sanchez will cost him his job eventually if they dont get rid of him.

I agree that he's pretty average and they are more stuck with him given his contract versus in denial. What do you want Rex to say? "Yeah, Mark sucks. Let's see how these next 5 years go!"* He's been piss poor besides Game 1 and I think he played pretty well vs the Texans. But maybe I'm partly in denial...

*the contract, I believe, is 5 years but the team has some chances to opt out with minimal damage. I think the only thing that was really guaranteed was this year and maybe some money into next.

He is what he is at this point. With a solid team around him like they had the first two years he was there, he's not so terrible that he'll single-handedly cost you a season. But on a lesser team like this one (especially after all the injuries), he's never going to that guy who takes the team on his back and brings them to the next level.
