NFC South Cap numbers

ESPN's Pat Yaskinas gives us the following cap numbers for the NFC South:

___________________________________________

The New Orleans Saints are $4.414 million under. To clarify an issue where there had been some uncertainty, the Saints are absorbing a $2.525 million hit this year after releasing tackle Jon Stinchcomb.

The Atlanta Falcons are $911,700 under the cap and may have to restructure some contracts or release some players if they’re going to make any more moves of substance.

The Carolina Panthers are $2.49 million under the salary cap. They also have plenty of ways to create room, if needed. They could sign center Ryan Kalil to a long-term deal and get him off the $10.1 million franchise tender. They also could restructure contracts of veterans like Chris Gamble, Jordan Gross and Steve Smith.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are $29.6 million under the cap. The good news is they don’t have the most cap room in the league. Kansas City ($33 million) now holds that honor. If you want to include all the guys under contract, which is how the cap is calculated for the regular season, the Bucs would have only $13.7 million available.

___________________________________________

Looks like we are OK headed into roster cuts, and Hurney is probably active renegotiating some contracts to give us some more room. We probably have enough room right now to sign one mid-major impact player if we structure the contract correctly. Question is, will that guy be available? If not, at least we have some options headed into the season in terms of money.
