According to the Packer Report over at Scout.com, the Green Bay Packers are 26th in the NFL in remaining cap space. Estimates have put the team in the neighborhood of $3-4 million in cap space remaining since the signing of Jeff Saturday. Aaron Wilson says that the Packers have $3.425 million remaining before the signing of Anthony Hargrove, with the information coming from a source.
Hargrove's contract isn't going to be massive, but it will obviously cut into that number a bit. As we get closer and closer to the NFL Draft -- especially if another free agent or two is signed -- there are going to be more questions about the futures of Donald Driver and Chad Clifton. The Packers aren't going to have any trouble getting under the cap this season, but the cap is enough of a concern that Ted Thompson might have to do a bit of maneuvering.
