Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for February 28, 2014

The reported salary cap number keeps increasing every day.


As the days roll on towards the start of free agency, the NFL's salary cap appears to be increasing a little bit each day. In today's curds, we look at the most recently-reported number, which is about $10 million higher than the 2013 cap. Of course, that gives some NFL teams more flexibility to overspend on free agents, while it will likely allow the Packers more opportunity to front-load some of the contract extensions and internal free agent signings they are likely to complete.

Also, we have a Packers trainer getting an award, a former Packer in legal trouble turning himself in, and a look at what would happen if Al Davis ran every team during this year's NFL draft. Eat up!
