There is an article on

It says that we have spent about 111 million of cap space right now, last years cap was 128 million so we would have roughly 20 million dollars of self-imposed cap room. Pick 18 last year signed for 5 years 15.5 million, so add some for inflation and we are looking at about 4 million against the cap. Therefore, we would have about 16 million left to sign the rest of the rookies and FS (Ryan Clark or otherwise). So I think we are in pretty good shape. So I am guessing they just dont want to pay Clark as much as he is asking for more than we dont have the cap space for it.
