    Exclamation Steelers with currently just $3.7 million in cap space

    With training camp now just weeks away, the Steelers are, as always, running very close to the salary cap for this season. Also as the article points out, the cap isn't expected to change all that much in 2013 either.

    However in 2014 if TV deal money comes through in the manner that many expect, that's when you can expect to see a significant jump in the cap going forward.

    Steelers and Ravens in bottom 10 with fewest available money, Browns and Bengals in top 5 with the most money.

    Jacksonville Jaguars: $25,115,885
    Tennessee Titans: $19,970,080
    Cleveland Browns
    : $17,774,764
    Kansas City Chiefs
    : $16,548,048
    Cincinnati Bengals
    : $16,309,693
    Philadelphia Eagles:
    $15,879,570

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
    $15,740,231
    Indianapolis Colts
    : $14,595,514

    Browns and Bengals always with so much room

    The Patriots are the exception, that team is good every year and they always have significant money available.

    The Eagles are the Penguins of football. Doubt their GM is as awesome as Ray Shero though..

    Eagles also look to move guys when they hit 31 years of age too. Meaning when you backload that second contract so a player doesn't see the majority of the contract,that's fiscal management .
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Any contending team that has significant cap money available should be ashamed of themselves. You need to keep a little money to bring in a guy because of an injury, but that's it.

    And with respect to the cap jumping significantly in 2014, there are many analyses saying that the jump won't be dramatic, and it may not increase much at all.

    "The average of the current deal is $1.93 billion. By the end of the new deal, the average will be $3.1 billion. But it is a gradual progression, and the NFL won't reach that top revenue number until 2022.

    So in 2014, the league will shift from the high point of the old deal to the low point of the new one. Without getting specific, Lewand said: "There is not a big jump.""

    Likely that cap number already included Wallace's tender, so there shouldn't be a problem when he signs it. If they do get him signed to a long term deal, it would likely include a fair amount of bonus money and lower annual salaries so that the cap hit isn't terrible.
