Pro Football Talk has refreshed their listings of available salary cap space for every NFL team. The Green Bay Packers haven't made any transactions since the last time PFT compiled this list, but it's still worth discussing because of the number of key players that are due for contract extensions in Titletown.

Currently, the Packers have $11.25 million remaining, a number that was increased by the restructuring of Donald Driver's contract. That leaves a little bit of wiggle room for Ted Thompson to frontload a new contract or two, making it easier for him to keep the core of the current team together into the near future. Greg Jennings and T.J. Lang are on deals that expire this year, Clay Matthews and B.J. Raji's contracts expire in 2013, and the very much underpaid Aaron Rodgers' deal expires in 2014.

Most of the players cutting deals right now are guys who were hit with the franchise tag, but it wouldn't be too shocking to see Thompson work on these deals before training camp starts. Then again, Jennings and Lang are not the types of guys who are going to be a distracted by their lack of a new contract. Even if both want to stay in Green Bay long term and they're looking for contract extensions, both are going to get paid if they don't get injured this year.

Poll time: Who do you guys think gets an extension first? My money is on Jennings, but I think we can make arguments for everyone on the list below.
