2012 cap expected to be $120.6 million | ProFootballTalk. The Green Bay Packers don't have big salary cap problems, but there was some earlier concerns that the salary cap number was going to come in lower than expected. Most of the offseason discussion has been expecting it to be around $120 million, and that's where it ended up. That's a slight increase from last season.
If the cap figure had come in lower than $120 million, then it could have ended any hope they had of re-signing Scott Wells. The Packers don't have a lot of room anyway, compared to a number of teams with tens of millions available to them. It seems like re-signing Wells is still a long-shot, but at least they have a little cap room to work with.
