    Not making a case for the guy from Denver (heck I couldn't even tell you his name without a google search), but one thing that the media types have said about that organization and the cap was about how smart it was that they signed Manning to what was basically 5 one-year deals instead of one 5 year deal, so if he can't pass a physical, they could just walk away. I don't know all the details as I didn't follow that signing. Once he spurned us, I moved on. I am just parroting what I have heard said during the playoffs.

    Supposedly Idzik did have some say in player evaluation (I am assuming players on the roster, not potential draft targets).

    From Seahawks.com:

    With Seattle, Idzik oversees player negotiations, the team’s compliance with the NFL salary cap, player personnel transactions, all football operations budgets, staff and team contracts, team travel and most aspects of the day-to-day football operations while also remaining active in player evaluations.

  • Regarding the fellow from Denver (Xanders) he was able to allow them to sign Manning with the 2nd highest cap number in '11 and was a decent GM budget wise.

    It would be harder to find a cap guy that can evaluate talent to some degree , so the list is short.
