Lions 23rd in available salary cap space

Saturday, May 16, 2009

If the Lions have any flashy signings left up their sleeves,they've still got some wiggle room -- but not as much as most teams. Mike Florio at lists each NFL teams' available salary cap space as of Friday (not including the nearly $1 million the NFL recently added to each team's cap). The Lions are 23rd out of the 32 teams with $7.4 million left in available cap space. The Buccaneers are still a whopping $36.6 million under the cap. But it's not as if your available cap space at this point is a sign of your team's competence or success: teams such as the Steelers, Patriots, Giants, Colts and Cardinals all have less available space left than the Lions.
