That sounds about right.

I'm not a capologist (none of us are I don't think), so I can't really say how bad they are at a shade under $2M over the cap. It doesn't seem so horrible to me. Last year they were about $20M over the cap.

If I were Portis, I wouldn't really be afraid of Griffin. He had one good game against the Colts and that's it. He's smaller than Charlie Garner and the little guys never get that much respect other than 3rd down/passing down situations.
