NFC North Salary Cap Situation - Team-by-Team

The Detroit Lions aren't the only team in the NFC North facing a tight squeeze in terms of the salary cap.

Kevin Seifert, ESPN NFC North beat writer, laid out the numbers in a recent entry. "The following is how much each team currently has committed to its 2012 cap. Keep in mind that the numbers probably will change between now and March 13 as teams re-sign, re-negotiate and release players from their rosters," Seifert wrote. Unfortunately, the Chicago Bears appear to be on solid ground, and are rumored to be in the market for either Robert Meachem or Vincent Jackson.

Chicago Bears: $101.8 million
Detroit Lions: $122.8 million
Green Bay Packers: $115.3 million
Minnesota Vikings: $115.3 million

As of now, the salary cap is right around $120 million, and isn't expected to significantly fluctuate. It will be interesting to see how the Lions maneuver the cap and sign free agents, retain their own, and bring in a new draft class. Martin Mayhew and Tom Lewand clearly have their work cut for them.

ROAR.
