It's almost shocking how across the league every relevant team is going through massive cap issues right now. The Packers are in the same boat as the Patriots, some minor issues to address but nothing significant. Niners are arguably as well but they are going to have several big time players up for contracts in the next couple years. -Steelers had to, for the second consecutive season, backload more contracts to just get under the cap -Giants cut multiple starters and significant players in their SB runs and will likely be losing Osi in FA. -Ravens just blew their load on Flacco, and while this first year is fairly cap friendly, they still have a plethora of guys looking for paydays without much in the way of cap space. -Broncos have a ton of significant starters/role players coming off as FA this offseason and don't have much cap space to deal with it. They're threatening to release guys like Dumervil if they don't take paycuts because they know they're up against the wall. And for the Bengals, for all of their talk of massive cap space is a bit of an illusion. They can't give long term deals out to guys because Green and Dalton will be commanding Stafford/Calvin type deals in not too long. Obviously they are in a good position right now, but don't expect them to make any significant upgrades. And of course the Jets. They have IIRC 12 starting positions they need to replace and are all of 7 million under the cap. Led by the great Mark Sanchez who's contract is unmanageable. Led by Brady's contract restructure, the Patriots are in great shape and even if we just maintain and look to add depth/stay afloat, we are in great position by the fact most other teams are going to get worse anyways. Except for the Niners who are scary.
