Then add 11 players to round out the roster at or near minimum: 500K each plus a little more for non-rookies, that's another. $6M
Estimated total would be $83.5-$84M.
So that's $5M left for the small number and $15M left for the big number.
Anyone know what our draft figure is? This year's draft counts on this year's payroll. If I recall correctly, so do planned buyouts if anyone has a contract option for 2015 (since it will happen right after the season).
