With the NFL recently setting the 2014 salary cap at $133 million, the Arizona Cardinals can breathe a little entering free agency on March 11.
They have about $17.9 million in cap space, according to ESPN Stats & Information. That number has grown exponentially throughout the offseason, jumping from just a couple million at most right after the season to about $10 million after Larry Fitzgerald restructured his deal about a month ago.
Arizona's priorities in and approach to free agency will change with close to $18 million available this year, a number that can grow in 2015 as the salary gap is expected to increase, according to reports.
Arizona is carrying more than $5.75 million from last season and has $10.28 million in dead money.
Combined, they assume $9.5 million of the Cardinals' $10 million dead money.
Here's the list of Arizona's dead money, courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information:
Levi Brown $6,514,191
Adam Snyder $3,000,000
Jamell Fleming $293,034
Senio Kelemete $95,580
Ryan Swope $86,841
David Carter $25,966
Jamaal Johnson-Webb $8,000
Padric Scott $4,000
Dan Buckner $3,334
Joe Caprioglio $2,000
Javon Harris $1,334
Korey Jones $1,334
Kenny Demens $1,000
Arizona may not be very active on Wednesday, Day 1 of free agency, but with more money to work with, the Cardinals aren't sweating at the neck anymore.
