Article may have come out a little too early for the Chargers, since I assume that Wilhelm now has the largest cap number of any player still with the team.

What I am impressed by is how the Chargers have the highest cap figure for a player no longer on their team being less that $500,000. If there were any doubts about their phenominal ability to manage the salary cap, they are now gone. I question if anyone (possible the Eagles) can compare with San Diego in properly utilizing the rollover rule with cap space as well as the Likely To Be Earned and Not Likely To Be Earned incentive rules.
