Here is an updated spending calculation:

Players signed: 489

Aggregate Salary: $725.3 million

Number of Players With Salary "Undisclosed": 61 (mostly fringe-ish players, but a couple of star-level guys)

Average Salary So Far For "Disclosed" Salaries: $1.69 million

The current projections allow for $1.7 billion in revenues. 54% of that is $918 million. After subtracting $66 million for benefits, available spending before an escrow would be required is $852 million.

This leaves about $127 million for the 61 undisclosed guys and the 200 other guys (including RFA's, etc.).

I note that the average salary of disclosed signees is creeping dow, as might have been predicted.
