With free agency approaching in less than a month, teams are in crunch time when it comes to figuring out who is worth keeping for 2014 and who isn’t. And it all comes down cap room.
The Arizona Cardinals got some breathing room last week when star receiver Larry Fitzgerald restructured his mega deal, giving Arizona about $10 million in cap space to work with during free agency, which officially begins at 2 p.m. MT on March 11.
Until then, Arizona will be working around the clock to determine if players still under contract in 2014 are worth keeping.
Here’s a look at the all the Cardinals’ cap numbers for 2014 that are more than $2 million:
QB Carson Palmer - $12 million
DE Calais Campbell - $11.25 million
DE Darnell Dockett - $8.75 million
WR Larry Fitzgerald - $8.6 million
G Daryn Colledge - $7.275 million
LB Daryl Washington - $6 million
CB Patrick Peterson - $5.864 million
CB Jerraud Powers - $4.75 million
C Lyle Sendlein - $4.125 million
DE John Abraham - $3.375 million
LG Jonathan Cooper - $3.3 million
WR Michael Floyd - $2.72 million
QB Drew Stanton - $2.67 million
LB Jasper Brinkley - $2.2 million
NT Dan Williams - $2.185 million
