I believe that players on IR still have their salaries count against the cap, but that players on LTIR (which none of our players are on, yet - Lombardi) are the ones that you get cap relief from.

The team is not in danger of going below the salary floor. We are still much closer to the midpoint and additionally, I believe our lease with Metro entails that the team has to spend close to the midpoint of the cap each season on payroll, but 101st can correct me on that...
