NFC South rookie pool numbers

Just got the 2011 rookie pool numbers for all four NFC South teams and wanted to share them with you before we get too deep into free agency.

Under the new rookie wage scale, each team has a designated amount to spend on its rookies. The formula to come up with that amount is based on the number of picks and where those picks were taken in the draft. Here’s the breakdown on the four NFC South clubs.

  • Atlanta: $5,052,827

  • Carolina: $7,132,452

  • New Orleans: $4,578,566

  • Tampa Bay: $4,789,294
