    I guess in 2011 and 2012 we borrowed against the cap and made the final 1 million dollar payments from the cap yesterday.

    They weren't alone, a total of 23 teams borrowed against the cap those years and it wasn't like they didn't know they had to pay it back......

    Well crap. So much for using that extra money to lure the great Revis back home.
