Cap set at 120.6 million for 2012. Lions reportedly over by 11.5 million

Team have until 4:00 Tuesday to get compliant. This is a moderate increase of 225,000 over 2011.

Looks like Lions have a 2m wiggle room currently which will improve if they manage to renegotiate CJ's contract. The Lions FO has been pretty mum on their negotiations, re-signing so far. Expect to hear some flash on Monday/Tuesday. I hope to see a few restructuring (Suh, Stafford, CWill, KVB etc), hopefully an extension of CJ's monstrous contract to get in line with the cap room.

Edit:

Based on PFT, here is the latest cap situation for all 32 teams.

Bengals: $49.9 million under.

Broncos: $44.7 million under.

Buccaneers: $42.7 million under.

Jaguars: $40.6 million under.

Chiefs: $32.5 million under.

Redskins: $31.1 million under.

Bills: $30.8 million under.

Seahawks: $29.8 million under.

Titans: $28.1 million under.

Bears: $22.6 million under.

49ers: $21.8 million under.

Browns: $17.4 million under.

Patriots: $16.2 million under.

Chargers: $14.9 million under.

Ravens: $14.45 million under.

Dolphins: $11.8 million under.

Colts: $11.6 million under.

Steelers: $10.5 million under.

Eagles: $9.6 million under.

Vikings: $7.9 million under.

Jets: $7.1 million under.

Falcons: $5.8 million under.

Packers: $5.4 million under.

Saints: $5.2 million under.

Cowboys: $4.7 million under.

Rams: $1.2 million under.

Giants: $3.8 million over.

Texans: $4.7 million over.

Panthers: $5.3 million over.

Raiders: $7.4 million over.

Lions: $11.5 million over.

Cardinals: $16.4 million over.

As you can see, cardinals are the only team that beats the Lions. Expect a bunch of cuts from Cardinals as they are apparently in the suck for Peyton run..
