yeah that's what I'm curious about. Would be great if we can make a draft-day trade for a DL...

Do unsigned Draft picks count against the Salary Cap?

Yes, once drafted, draft picks are assigned a tender equal to the rookie minimum salary for that year.  For 2021 that amount is $660K.  That tender amount is replaced by the player’s actual Salary Cap number once the draft pick signs his rookie contract.

Who does this benefit and what is the motivation?  Obviously the voidable years defer the cap hit for the Packers.  But voiding the contract 22 days early, is that King's agent, trying to motivate the Packers to get him resigned next February before the deal voids and they get stuck with the dead cap hit?  I don't get it....

I don't think there's any real reason for it.  Or at least nothing that makes sense.  I think the only motivation would be that it might incentivize the Packers to get an extension done to keep the void years from accelerating.

Has anyone done a deeper dive on the 2022 offseason? With all the cap hits being pushed out, how much trouble will we be in after this season? I get the impression we'll be capped out next offseason even with the cap going back up.

We're sitting at $216 million (project $7million over) BUT

Z and Preston will be restructured. Lowry will be gone. So that's $55 million that will be remedied right there.

Not to mention it's likely Jaire gets a new deal, Rodgers may be restructured, Crosby may be gone and King's $3million are fake. So there's another $60 million that is potentially move-aroundable.

Not much once we trade Rodgers away next year.

Ugh. I reread this like 4 times and thought it was stupid, trolling, crazy, and the most likely outcome

Right now, Spotrac is showing them 23.8m over the cap for 2022, with only 30 players on the roster. This assumes a league cap of 192.5m. If you add filler-contracts to get up to 51 players, that adds another 16.4m (780k per, judging by who is making this year's threshold). Plus 2m differential for 2022 draft picks. 

So we're starting out at -42.2m cap space. 2021 Rollover will probably be peanuts. Cutting P.Smith and Lowry brings us up to -25.5m space. This number assumes D.Adams is not re-signed. 

Further opportunities for savings:
A.Rodgers: 39.9m cap hit (17.2m dead)= trading clears 22.7m. 2yr extension probably clears maybe 15m in 2022.
Z.Smith: 27.9m cap hit (12.1m dead)= cut/trade clears 15.0m. Extension clears maybe 9m.
A.Amos: 11.4m cap hit (2.8m dead)= cut/trade clears 7.8m. Extension clears maybe 3.9m. 
B.Turner: 9.0m cap hit (4.9m dead)= cut/trade clears 3.3m. Extension clears maybe 2.7m.  

Possible Restructures:
K.Clark: currently 14.95m in base-salary/roster-bonus. if spread over remainder of deal, clears 9.0m in 2022.
D.Bak: 13.20m in base-salary/roster-bonus. if spread over remainder of deal, clears 7.8m in 2022.

J.Alexander: currently 13.29m cap hit (5th yr option). could be reduced if extended. Using Ramsey's deal as a baseline, I'm guessing we could drop Alexander's 2022 hit by 5m.

So theoretically, I think we could scrape-by without doing anything with Rodgers' deal, but we'd have to do something with basically all the other contracts listed above. Or let D.Adams walk.

That's where it's headed. 

Based on zoom calls with Love ?? I'm not buying it. The Packers aren't moving on from Rodgers until they're positive Love is the guy, and I can't see any possible way they already know that

you gloss over the most important detail: The 2022 cap is not going to be $192.5 million

Well, no one has declared what the cap will be. They are borrowing off of that cap to help the 2021 cap. 

Many here were insisting that the 2021 cap hit would be much higher than the early 180m projections, but at the end of the day, it wasn’t far off.
