Bucs top teams with available salary-cap space

The following is a team-by-team list of available salary-cap room entering Thursday, according to a league source. This list obviously is in flux as teams release players and restructure contracts.

Teams didn’t have to be in compliance with the new salary cap until the beginning of the official league year, which started with the ratification of the new collective bargaining agreement. The 2011 salary-cap threshold for teams is $120 million, along with a $3 million cap credit as well as other areas for minor allotments.”

Five teams — the Texans, Cowboys, Lions, Steelers and Raiders — were above the salary cap.
