Tax Hit ****

*This is Atlanta’s team salary without Delaney, Lee, Magette, and White’s cap hold. Without Taylor’s, Cleveland’s, and Morris’s non-guaranteed contract contract. I project this as a likely scenario.

**Atlanta will only have room exception available if Atlanta chooses to renounce rights to MLE and Bi-Annual to create cap space. Remember, the MLE and Bi-Annual count towards your team salary if below the salary cap. Most teams renounce these to create room, which then the room exception becomes available.

***This is the max space(without trade/and stretch) Atlanta can create. For this to happen, Atlanta must renounce all free agents, and waive all non-guaranteed money. Also Muscala and Dedmon would have to opt out. Also Atlanta must draft overseas players that will stay overseas, or trade draft picks away for future picks. Very unlikely situation.

****IRC stands for “incomplete roster charge”. This happens when teams fall below 12 players under contract. For every spot under 12, a team is charged the rookie minimum. For Atlanta to create max space, they would only have 7 players under contract. Therefor would be charged 831,311(rookie minimum for 18-19) 5 times. The charges go away after each spot is filled.
