    Just between Aaron Donald, Todd Gurley and others and now with them signing Goff to a record extension. Why is it or how is it that they are able to do that?
    The cap is largely fictional. Teams can keep most of their star players if they want to. The team just has to be smart enough to spread the money out and not have humongous spike years where the cap hit is too large to bear.

    Teams that end up in cap hell are there largely because they push the money into future cap space, the Cowboys & Steelers do that a lot. They sign contracts with lower early cap hits and the money is pushed back 3-4 years from then, they have to restructure contracts and then it gets pushed further back until it adds up into a massive punitive form where they have to sacrifice players.

    The Eagles are another team that is always up against it with the cap, yet they continue to keep their best players and people constantly bemoan them for being able to.

        Yup teams can sign anyone they want depending on structure, restructure and cuts. A smart way is like 9ers did with Jimmy G. Pay a boatload one year early on and its below average after that.

            You have to be able to have a dumpster fire sale year or two first though to set that up.

Front loading and smoothing out contracts will allow you to keep a ton of talent. A lot of teams prefer to take the hit later on but the smart teams that front load contracts and ensure that the AAV is even or smooth instead of rampant with spikes tend to have less cap issues.

              The lower you keep the dead money, the more flexible your team will be.
              The spending limit of the cap only hampers those who cannot structure properly.

                  Not really. You cut guys when you can. Denver hasn't had a problem and MCD gave out some bad contracts like Dooms. There are some years it is more restrictive than others. Denver should be looking to chop Wolf and even Von in the next few years. Todd Davis too.

Zach Martin 80M contract. The next couple years there’s nothing to worry about but beyond that they’ll lose some talent cause of the salary cap.
                    Dallas has 65 mil in cap next year projected with Zeke, Collins, and Smith's deal all there. They have more than enough to pay Cooper, Jones and Dak, while still having some cap room. Looking at OTC FA's, those are their only real key guys they gotta pay. They got more than enough cap to pay both of them.

                    Teams can pay their stars, it's overpaying the JAG types that **** over teams.

                      The Goff deal isnt good sure, but they really had no choice, there's no replacement in sight. Teams are unfortunately forced to overpay their QB's when that time comes.

                        At these prices I'd seriously start contemplating riding the franchise tag for a year or two to make sure he's trending the right way.

                        People laughed at the Skins for rolling Cousins out on the FT, but look where that ended up.

                          I agree. From what I read his extension doesn't kick in until 2021 which lengthens their Super Bowl window. They have extended a lot of guys since they've been back in LA but they also have a lot of guys coming due. We will see the Rams lose a bunch of FA's starting this offseason. They are thinking about that ring. Obviously so were Weddle and Clay Matthews because they took way less than they could have gotten from other teams.
