With official numbers out [url=][/url] , here’s exactly where the Packers sit against the cap."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers officially have $14 million in salary cap space, with $4.7M needed for draft classMark Hoffman-USA TODAY SportsAll of the runaround about the Green Bay Packers’ cap space in the past week can come to an end right now. Thanks to the reporting of ESPN’s Field Yates, we have official cap numbers for every team in the NFL, and the Packers are pretty close to what we expected.In fact, the Packers’ real cap number is a tiny bit better than what is currently projected by Over the Cap, and Spotrac, both of which have the team at just under $14 million. Yates’ numbers have the team just over $14 million, at $14,004,669:Does this mean that the Packers can go out and splurge on a few more players? Probably not. As always, teams need to reserve a little bit of cap space for their draft picks, and the Packers have ten selections in the 2019 NFL Draft, including two first-round picks.However, despite the total value of the Packers’ draft pool coming in at $10.3 million — a solid number [url=][/url] , based on the NFL’s rookie wage scale — the team only needs to reserve about $4.7 million in space to sign those players. This is because during the offseason, only the largest 51 contracts (in terms of current-year cap hit) count towards the cap. As a result, signing a draft pick drops another player down out of that Top 51 group, while some draft picks’ contracts would not even make the Top 51.Here’s the full breakdown of the effective cap space required to sign the ten picks currently under the Packers’ control:2019 Packers Draft CapRoundPick 2019 CapReplacesNet Cap Effect RoundPick 2019 CapReplacesNet Cap Effect In this table, you can clearly see that only the first seven draft picks would displace an existing contract off the Top 51 list. Furthermore, in the case of the third-, fourth-, and fifth-round picks, the effective cap space needed to sign each player is less than $200,000.Totaling up the net cap effect of all these contracts brings the total to $4,717,318. Therefore, that is the minimum amount of cap space that the team must conserve in order to remain under the salary cap by signing players drafted in these ten slots — at least for the offseason. The number may change if the Packers make any draft-day trades, but for now that number is effectively set in stone (give or take a few dollars here and there on individual contracts).Thus [url=]Vince Biegel Jersey[/url] , with just over $14 million in total cap space and the need to retain about $4.7 million to sign the draft picks, the Packers still have a little over $9 million in leftover cap space — $9,287,351, to be exact. As a team that likes to retain a few million each year for the regular season, Russ Ball has the Packers right on track for 2019. The Packers’ spending this offseason could force the front office to move on with players beyond those that have already departed Green Bay."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareCheese curds, 3/20: Packers’ 2019 spending could limit options in futureBill Streicher-USA TODAY SportsThe Green Bay Packers made arguably the biggest splash in free agency this offseason, adding four players on multiyear contracts, all likely starters. Those moves bolster a roster that fell short last year and give new head coach Matt LaFleur a chance to jumpstart his tenure in Green Bay.Still, those expenditures come with a cost beyond the dollar amount, one the Packers will eventually have to pay.Packers’ spending spree in 2019 will mean touch decisions in 2020 | Packers WireThe Packers’ decision to limit the cap hit for their four big free agent additions allows for flexibility in case they decide to make another significant addition or move later this year. At the same time, the team will have to pay significantly more for those players in 2020, limiting how the front office can maneuver and, perhaps most importantly [url=][/url] , whom it can retain. Green Bay has a more robust free-agent class hitting the market next offseason, a list including Bryan Bulaga, Mike Daniels, and Blake Martinez.Gutekunst made right call by moving on from two Packers greats | 247 SportsMany fans have a hard time saying goodbye to longtime contributors like Clay Matthews and Randall Cobb. However, successful front offices know when the sever ties with aging players. The Packers have already gone about replacing Matthews’ role in the defense and could do the same with Cobb’s in the upcoming NFL draft.Packers News: Cornerback has become a need entering draft | Lombardi AveWhile not an aging stalwart like Matthews or Cobb, cornerback Bashaud Breeland made a handful of big plays for the Packers defense down the stretch of 2018 and could have done so again had the team retained him. Instead, Breeland signed a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, leaving Green Bay to add talent in the later stages of free agency or the draft. The top of the depth chart looks promising with Jaire Alexander, Josh Jackson, and Kevin King at the top, but the group could use some depth.The First Free Agency Frenzy (1993) | NFL ThrowbackThe NFL Media’s digital arm publishes interesting videos from time to time. This one, which details the first true free agency period in 1993, covers one former member of the Packers you expect and another perhaps you didn’t realize hit the market that year.
