Free Agency Update

Courtesy of Garafolo, C.C. Brown’s contract. $1.6M cap for 2009.

Also note the ex-Giants free agents with 4+ years still not signed. James Butler, S; John Carney, K; Jerome McDougle, DE; R.W. McQuarters, CB/KR; Grey Ruegamer, G/C; Rich Scanlon, LB; Amani Toomer, WR; Anthony Wright, QB; Renaldo Wynn, DL.

from the St. Louis Dispatch:
The lack of space (in the Rams’ salary cap) could be one reason nothing has happened with free agent safety James Butler of the New York Giants, who visited Rams Park last week. The other reason could simply be that Butler’s agents, Kevin and Carl Poston, aren’t known for striking deals quickly.
The early deals signed by safeties Gibril Wilson and Yeremiah Bell came in at about $5 million a year or more. The Rams are believed to be offering significantly less to Butler. To date, Butler is not known to have taken any other trips.

    Thank God we don’t have to debate for a minute longer whether Reese should sign that guy. I am so glad he is Buffalo’s headache.
