I know SR had a cap figure set of numbers for insiders but I didn't recall anything being tossed out for the rest of the world. (BTW, the CAR figure is not missing an "m" they are $3.10 over the cap right now)

Rank   Team   $ Under the Cap
1 San Francisco 49ers $42.1 M
2 Buffalo Bills $39.7 M
3 Arizona Cardinals $36.7 M
4 Tennessee Titans $36 M
5 Cleveland Browns $33.305 M
6 St. Louis Rams $31.98 M
7 Minnesota Vikings $31.5 M
8 Jacksonville Jaguars $31 M
9 Cincinnati Bengals $28.8 M
10 NY Jets $28.455 M
11 Green Bay Packers $28.36 M
12 New England Patriots $26.98 M
13 Chicago Bears $26.9 M
14 New Orleans Saints $26 M
15 San Diego Chargers $24.6 M
16 Tampa Bay Buccaneers $23.985 M
17 Seattle Seahawks $21.9 M
18 Dallas Cowboys $21.5 M
19 Houston Texans $19.8 M
20 Miami Dolphins $17.8 M
21 NY Giants $15.7 M

24 Philadelphia Eagles $12.4 M
25 Atlanta Falcons $11.5 M
26 Denver Broncos $7.6 M
27 Kansas City Chiefs $7 M

32 Washington Redskins $-2.388 M
 

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.
If you think Manziel is the best QB in this draft I can safely assume you are an idiot and will treat you as such.

The Cardinals cap space is about to be eaten up.

It's mighty painful being about $24 million under the cap and only being in the middle of the pack.  That's why I'm just not convinced that Rice won't be back here next year.  Yeah, he has a rather extraordinary salary, but are we really going to be able to find value for with the extra cap space cutting him would provide?  It seems to me it may be hard for the team to spend the $24M they already have available.

We should save our cap space until we are a contender.

Save it?  You don't get to roll over unused cap space.  Rice is in the last year of his contract anyways, so we'd basically be "saving" it by keeping him anyways.  Not to mention we might actually be able to get a decent compensentory pick if we let him play out his contract rather than cutting him this offseason.

It does rollover in a way. If we used all of our cap space signing big name players, their salaries will increase faster than the cap will every year.

If right there is $673m kicking about in free agency and that is before guys get cut and released to create even more room and last I checked 150 free agents or about $4.5m per free agent.

True, but you can work "not likely to be earned" bonuses into player's contracts that count against the current cap, but are "refunded", at least in part, when those incentives aren't reached.  The Eagles have been doing this for years.

That's half right.  The trick is to give players incentives that the league classifies as LTBE but actually aren't.  LTBE bonuses count against the cap immediately and are refunded if they aren't met.  NLTBE bonuses don't count until they're actually met.
