PFT: Packers Have Over $11 Million In Salary Cap Room

According to Pro Football Talk, the Green Bay Packers are under the salary cap by $11,106,000. My first thought was they could have used that room to re-sign DE Cullen Jenkins, who received a more team friendly contract ($5 million per season) than I expected.

On the other hand, there are 12 teams with more room than the Packers. But with the new cash minimums required by the now approved labor deal, many of those teams are going to need to spend next year when players like Jordy Nelson, Josh Sitton, and Jermichael Finley become free agents. The Packers might need that room for an extension or two during the regular season. But as usual, I don't expect GM Ted Thompson will let any player go that he really wants to keep.
