Re: Another Trey reset 

I dont get how you can not be active in FA and spend 80% of your cap.. Right now we have close to 50 million we need to spend... How many mid level and lower level FA do you have to sign to fill that up?

Last reports are the Browns have around €45m available to spend.  $14-15m of that is carryover cap space from 2012.  I don't believe the carryover caps space falls in the 89% (seen vary reports of 89%-95%) of the cap that must be spent.

So in reality the Browns have $30m in 2013 cap space of which they must spend $26.7m. After paying for rookie contracts they'll have around $18m, which is still a significant sum to fill some holes.  That is the number I would expect them to spend, not $50m.  I believe Haslam when he says they won't take a deep dive into FA, they'll be active, as they have to be, but it won't be Dan Snyderesque.   I seriously doubt they go past the required spend, or use extra resources like cap space carried over.
