  • 2017 Texans Salary Cap

    I'll get this going with NFLPA's view on the cap,

    Always seems to be more than one way to look at it...


    NFLPA @NFLPA
    Wondering which teams will have the most $$$ to spend this offseason?

    Says $4.9M for Texans.

    Hopefully Troy comes in and clears it up for us.

    Salary cap set at $167 million for 2017, according to a league official.

    TexansCap @TexansCap
    If the cap is set at an even $167.0m then expect the Texans to start the league year at $23.388 million in cap space.

          Yes the 2018 number will go up after draft picks etc. But the point is 2018 the team has a large amount of flexibility.

          Houston Texans currently have $33.674M in guaranteed salary set to be paid in 2017. For 2018...$3.179M in guaranteed salaries.

            Using OTC data, here’s how each team is allocating their money spent at each position for the 2017 season.

              Methinks we should be spending a little more for a team that doesn't have a rookie option.. I mean savage is in training.. but the broncos went with Siemien and Raiders have Carr. At least they know who their QB is. Broncos may go with Lunch pretty soon.. if the plan is to spend as little as possible on a qb.. savage should've started last year.

                  I find it very difficult to "get my head around" the fact, that we are spending 25% of our salary cap on the offensive line. Now I see why we don't have a right side ..... we simply can't afford it !!

                      May be a stupid question, but does Newton's injury affect his cap hit?

                      I know they're typically written with X amount guaranteed plus incentives, but I wasn't sure if the injury plays a role in those incentives or if incentives even count against the cap.

                      From Spotrac:

                      Contract Notes:
                      • $10M guaranteed (Signing Bonus + 2015 base + 2016 base)
                      • 2015 Roster Bonus: $2.25M
                      • $13.75M cash over 2015-16
                      Also -- Given the way the team kept DQ on the roster and covered his treatment, do you see them taking a similar approach with Newton until he's recovered before possibly giving him the axe?

                          There are no stupid questions .... only people with inferiority issues ! I know that both are costing us .... Newton -a lot and Quessenberry - very little.

                            Looks like 18th here...?

                            18. Houston Texans (11)

                            Top overall grade: LT Duane Brown, 85.7 (No. 17)

                            Top pass-blocking grade: C Greg Mancz, 87.2 (tied for No. 3)

                            Top run-blocking grade: LT Duane Brown, 84.8 (No. 7)

                            We have reached the point in the list where every remaining O-line is, at best, severely flawed. The Houston Texans’ unit saw a mix of excellent performances and pretty terrible ones in the regular season. LT Duane Brown began to creep back towards his best play this season, allowing only one sack all year and run blocked well, with the league’s seventh-best grade in that area, at 84.6. Greg Mancz—a player that dominated PFF’s grades in college—looked like a solid find for the team at center in his second season after being an undrafted free agent in 2015. Mancz allowed one sack and 18 total QB pressures across 671 pass-blocking snaps in the regular season, and was perfect in his Wild Card outing against the Raiders last week. Chris Clark, however, was the league’s worst pass-protecting right tackle, surrendering a ridiculous 67 total QB pressures on the season; he was also flagged 13 times. The guard pairing either let themselves down run blocking (Jeff Allen) or pass blocking (Xavier Su’a-Filo) over the year.
