The Green Bay Packers have more cap space than an Antworten

earlier report suggested."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers have $13 million in salary cap space , not $5 million as previously reportedMark Hoffman-USA TODAY SportsUpdate: Since initial publishing of this article, Tom Silverstein has reported that the Packers actually have around $13 million in salary cap space at present, not the $5 million he reported on Monday. The discrepancy appears to be due to the team accounting for their draft class and a small amount of cushion for the regular season.A working theory about this confusion is as follows: The Packers may be telling agents of players that they have less that $5 million in salary cap space to work with. This would make sense given the previously-expected numbers. If the team has $13 million in cap space as of today, needs to reserve about $5 million to sign draft picks, and wants to reserve $3 million for the regular season, that would leave them with about $5 million in cap money that they feel is usable to sign players before the draft. If the team told this number to an agent, that person could have mentioned it to Silverstein and one of the two parties may have misinterpreted it as the actual current cap space rather than how much the team is willing to work with.This is just a theory about the genesis of this report, however. See the full article about the original report below.The Green Bay Packers like to go into the regular season with a handful of salary cap space in order to maintain some flexibility for the season. Typically something around $8 million is in place to cover any unexpected transactions Womens Kentrell Brice Jersey , cover players who go on injured reserve, or land the occasional in-season contract extension.However, that might prove a bit more difficult this season than first imagined. Sites that tracked NFL teams’ salary cap space believed the Packers to have had about $35 million in cap space prior to signing their four big-name free agents and releasing outside linebacker Nick Perry. Following those transactions and the signings of wide receiver Geronimo Allison and tight end Marcedes Lewis, Over the Cap had the Packers estimated with about $13.5 million in cap space. With about $4.7 million going to sign this year’s draft class (remember that the Top 51 rule still applies during the offseason), the Packers seemed to be right in line with their normal constraints.However, there is apparently some faulty math somewhere. According to Tom Silverstein of, some previous cap charges were not calculated, and have been added to the team’s cap number for 2019:If this was an unexpected circumstance for the team Reggie White Jersey , there will be some serious explaining to do regarding Russ Ball’s handling of the cap. Alternately, if the NFL identified this now and sprung it on the team well into the free agency period, that would be an unlucky, arguably unfair result.However, it is also possible that the Packers were aware of this situation, and that they knew just how close they were to the cap without tipping their hand to the media, who had the numbers wrong. That situation may explain why the Packers chose to backload so much money in the four new players’ deals onto future years, as well as why the team seemingly did not pursue cornerback Bashaud Breeland more seriously.Until we know more or see the Packers release a player to make some more cap space Lance Kendricks Jersey White , Packers fans should assume that their team is done in free agency for the time being. The former Packer could be going to an NFC rival."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareNFL Free Agency Rumors: Former Packers WR Jordy Nelson will visit SeahawksBenny Sieu-USA TODAY SportsWhile Randall Cobb is in Dallas to meet with the Cowboys about a possible free agent contract this week, another former Green Bay Packers wide receiver is visiting a rival NFC team in the hopes of finding a new deal. The latter is Jordy Nelson, and after a one-year stop with the Oakland Raiders he found himself back on the market after Oakland released him in recent days.Now, Nelson has a plane ticket booked to head up the West coast for a visit with the Seattle Seahawks. ESPN’s Adam Schefter had the news first of the visit, which is apparently scheduled to take place on Tuesday.In addition to this meeting the Seahawks, Nelson has apparently also seen a handful of other teams show interest in him so far. Schefter mentioned four teams specifically in that group: the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans Womens Jaire Alexander Jersey , and oddly the Raiders, who just released him. It is notable that the Packers do not appear on this list; for now it seems that Nelson is not in their plans for 2019.Nelson caught 63 passes last season in a Raiders uniform, turning that into 739 yards (11.7 average) and three touchdowns. It was a step up from his overall production in 2017, when he averaged just 9.1 yards per reception and had a career-low catch rate of 60.2 percent.
