I knew it was coming, and had prepared myself for it ever since the end of the season, but it still doesn't take away from the disappointment that one of my favorite players in the league (mostly due to his Husker ties) is no longer on my team.
I can see why TT didn't overpay and I dont blame him neither. I wish Ahman well, just not against us. Houston is quickly becoming Green Bay South, unfortunately, it's the Green Bay that went 4-12 under Sherman under his last year, and that can't be good.

There are alot of little idiocincrecies when it comes to the draft and the salary cap. Quick and easy answer, yes the picks contract counts against the cap. One way the NFl eases things for teams is by institutng a rookie cap.
