From the rules though, you have the following options if you spend all 65 million:
-teams that find themselves over or at the soft cap at the beginning of the off-season will be awarded mle for the purpose of signing free agents (resigning own free agents doesn't affect mle), that lasts until the end of the season, but can not be traded, or combined with other exceptions
-after using up mle, teams over the (soft) cap can only offer one year min salary deals to free agents
-if a team is over the (soft) cap limit, or doing a trade that would put it over it, salary it's taking on in the trade must be within 125% + 100k of the salary it's giving up
-team salaries can only go over the soft cap limit, but not over hard cap, under 5 scenarios
1) due to back loaded salaries increasing at the start of the season
2) due to signing of a drafted rookie to a rookie deal
3) due to using whole or a part of mle, or offering min deal after mle is used up
4) due to completing a trade that follows trade rules (see the rule above this one)
5) due to resigning own free agent (bird rights)
Technically meaning he could have the MLE, which I'm not sure the dollar value for, and as many $250,000 bids he needs to fill out a roster.
