    I can't be sure what the actual availible cap space is for the Patriots I know for a fact they have 15 million more dollars to spend this year thnx to TB! I've heard so many different numbers before the donation by Brady that I can't be sure were they are cap wise! By my guess they are somewheres between 25 to 33 mil in cap space based upon the current 123mil dollar cap.Hopefully one of the guys who really know this stuff will clarify the actual dollar amount the Pats are at.

    Has been reported that the actual number is $123.9 million Salary Cap and my resources show that the Patriots are $27,708,366 under the cap as of now.

    Thnx TB12 I knew someone knew the actual number and that doesn't even count the possible cutting of a few million more off the roster,I thought I'ld read somewhere's that they could easily make it to 30 mil buy the time FA season starts! That would give BB all the money he needs too fix a couple of key spots like WR by signing WW and a field stretcher at the number 1 WR slot,maybe a safety with ballhawking skills,and a big DT 3 technique/2 gap type D-lineman to help The Fork with rushing up the middle,and of course a DB with some skills in covering in man to man situations,I think this would complete my wish list!!!

    That would probably complete most of our wish lists.  We could probably start saving for our SB tickets after this.

    Re: Salary Cap increased to 123 million

    There seems to be some confusion about the actual cap number.  Places are reporting $123 mill, while others are reporting $123.9 mill.

    Here is where I read $123.9 mill... per rotoworld

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport initially reported the cap would be $123 million flat, but ESPN's Chris Mortensen says after accounting for league revenues, it gets a $900,000 bump. It's not a major spike, but it gives teams a little more breathing room than we were expecting. It could be the difference in keeping a veteran or signing a free agent.

    According to this piece, Pats have $24.988 million in cap space (among top 10 in league).

    If that's accurate should provide them some flexibility in FA shopping.  I'm guessing their priorities will be Welker, Vollmer and Talib but ya nevah know with BB.

    Re: Salary Cap increased to 123 million

    $25 million gives the Pats some nice flexibility, but keep in mind that top-level veteran free agents tend to come with cap hits of $4 to $8 million (or even more) so don't expect BB to go overboard in free agency. Re-signing Welker, Talib, and Vollmer (if BB decides to go that way) would likely eat up most of that amount leaving enough for maybe one more high-profile FA. Because of this, I expect BB to continue to look for more value guys since there are quite a few roster slots to fill this year.
