CURRENT CAP NUMBERS FOR ALL TEAMS

We've gotten a look-see at the current cap numbers for each of the 32 NFL teams.

And here's the cap space each team has or, as the case may be, hasn't.

Raiders: $300,000.

Buccaneers: $406,200.

Patriots: $532,500.

Falcons: $564,300.

Dolphins: $1,110,200.

Saints: $1,170,600.

Giants: $1,317,200.

Redskins: $1,502,900.

Jets: $1,573,500.

Seahawks: $1,829,900.

Buffalo: $2,020,100.

Chiefs: $2,021,600.

Broncos: $2,183,700.

Titans: $2,266,700.

Steelers: $3,000,500.

Panthers: $3,290,500.

Texans: $3,832,700.

Lions: $4,469,800.

49ers: $4,744,700.

Bengals: $5,163,700.

Rams: $6,018,700.

Packers: $6,069,400.

Bears: $6,160,600.

Ravens: $7,058,300.

Chargers: $7,278,900.

Browns: $7,974,400.

Cardinals: $7,999,000.

Colts: $8,192,200.

Eagles: $8,523,200.

Vikings: $9,398,000.

Cowboys: $9,725,500.

Jaguars: $11,348,800.

The Jags have $11M to play with and have franchised DD for a 3 year? I would be pissed...even though that franchise tag is some healthy cash. Gotta have that job security though...

How would Oakland or Tampa sign a their draft picks? Can they defer it to next year or what?

They'll have to restructure salaries and/or cut players.

So will the Lions it looks like. I guess Hakim would clear enough space for our rookies.

It will be close, last year they had $4.5M allocated to the rookie cap. They also had higher picks, including two first-rounders. If they stay put with their picks, their allocated rookie cap should decrease this year.

The Lions cap room will depend upon who they pick, release, and restructure. Where they come from will also have some inpact. By that I mean FA or the draft. FA's can come considerably cheaper than a draft choice, depending upon where they are drafted.

You also need to look at the worth of the position relative to the Lions needs as well as the value of the individual player. A back-up will come cheaper than a starter.

I haven't said anything that you don't know. My point is that it's a very fluid situation.

I can see the Lions ending up with cap room as well as bumping up against it.

Personally I see them leaving themselves some cap room for next year. Yeah it would be nice to go to the Super Bowl next year in Detroit but we all know that it's very difficult to do when you have very little playoff experience on your team.

I do think that they have taken notice of New England's success and will be prudent with their spending.

Final point: how bad do the Fords want to win?

I agree with Wi Lion. The lions will go as far as they can this year, and if it isnt to the superbowl they will have an above average nucleus to work with next year. Therefore they will want some space to work with. They did well the last few years, the average person is taking notice to the lions, alot of anylysts are considering them the NFC north sleepers. I would be happy with a play off win, and a healthy team with playoff experience. The Lions are finally in the upper Tier. Favre will retire next year, and we will see the Packers rebuild. Chicago is still behind the lions in terms of talent and depth and arent catching up anytime soon, Minnesota is are only real competition. We are finally in good shape, lets not find out what salary cap purgatory is just yet.. Maybe 2007 after we win the superbowl... 8)

That's a bold statement. Chicago is getting better and they've really solidified their OL, especially with the addition of Fred Miller. Look for them to be pretty good next year. Even though I hate "daBears," I have to give them 8-8

The Bears are getting better. I dont dispute that fact. Lovie Smith simply hasn't had time to turn that catipillar into a butterfly yet. The Lions have made their transformation already, so I was simply saying that Smith's vision for the bears is still under construction!

The best free agent the bears have picked up in the offseason is Muhsin Muhammad. Nobody should dispute that. But you dont win games in Chicago in December in the air. The bears did beef up the lines, and they really needed it. They ranked 32nd in offense last year. 32nd! 8-8 doesnt happen that fast, but I agree they did get better, you just missed the point that the lions are on the upper tier... and like I said in terms of talent and depth, Chicago is not close. Anylytically anyway. Anything can happen in the NFL I just think they need another year.

Well, I wholeheartedly agree that the Lions have improved much more than the Bears. I also agree that Lovie hasn't had the time to turn the team around. I expect the NFCN to be tough next year with the Bears and the Pack battling it out for the last spot. Plus, they'll have Grossman back, who I think is a bum but he's a lot better than Hutchinson. Either way, they'll improve, but they won't be better than the Lions. So, I do agree with you. Sorry for the confusion on that.
