15. New York Giants
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $12.6 million (figure doesn’t include the signings of Walter Thurmond and Jon Beason)

16. Houston Texans
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $12.1 million

Rivaling the Bengals as the NFL’s least active free agent squad, the Texans’ $12 million in available cap space would increase to over $15 million with the release of Matt Schaub. Although they have the available cap space to make a play for a free agent, Houston seems content standing still. The Texans do have a fair amount of talent in place as well as the #1 overall selection in May’s draft. Their biggest offseason concern (aside from finding a franchise quarterback) is likely locking up J.J. Watt (a free agent after 2014) to a long-term deal.


17. Denver Broncos
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $11.7 million (figure doesn’t include the signing of Emmanuel Sanders)

18. New England Patriots
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $10.8 million (figure doesn’t include the signings of Julian Edelman, Brandon Browner and Brandon LaFell)

19. Atlanta Falcons
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $10.6 million

20. Baltimore Ravens
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $10 million (before the re-signing of Daryl Smith)

21. Washington Redskins
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $9.5 million

22. Arizona Cardinals
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $8.9 million

23. Tennessee Titans
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $8.8 million (figure doesn’t include the signing of Michael Oher)

24. Carolina Panthers
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $8.4 million (figure doesn’t include the signing of Roman Harper)

25. Dallas Cowboys
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $7.7 million

If we’re all going to bash Jerry Jones for his perpetual cap mismanagement, then we’ve got to credit him when he does something right. While parting ways with DeMarcus Ware may have been a no-brainer due to the $7.4 million he saved Dallas against the 2014 cap, releasing a franchise cornerstone is never easy. Jones also designated Miles Austin as a June 1st cut. While this will give the Cowboys needed flexibility to sign their incoming rookies when June 1st comes around, the downside is that Austin will still count for $5.236 million against the salary cap in 2015.

Dallas’ current cap situation isn’t enough for them to bring in any difference-making free agents (though you never know with Jones). However, they may have put themselves in a position to extend either Dez Bryant or Tyron Smith before their values inevitably increase..

27. San Francisco 49ers
Approximate Current Available Cap Space - $4.4 million
