Checking in on the Bucs' salary cap

It's time for our periodic check on Tampa Bay's salary cap situation.

With the latest contract (receiver Louis Murphy's) factored in, the Bucs currently stand $11.99 million against the salary cap.

That leaves the team plenty of money to remain active in what's left of free agency. The Bucs will need $3 million to $4 million to sign their draft picks and they'll want to carry a cushion into the regular season in case there are injuries.

But the Bucs still have several million they can spend in the meantime. I still see the possibility of the Bucs signing several more free agents.

Wide receiver and guard are the two most obvious needs, but I can see the Bucs adding depth at just about any position.
