Breaking News: the Green Bay Packers don't spend a lot of money in free agency.
Instead of "rolling the dice" on veteran players on the market, the Packers would rather develop their own players through the draft instead of risking money on used goods in free agency. It's an approach that has served the Packers well under general manager Ted Thompson, but the team has holes it will need to fill if it wants to remain in the NFL's upper echelon.
The salary cap this past year was $120.6 million and is expected to remain flat. The Packers last season ran up a total of $98.36 million against the cap, leaving roughly $22 million in room.
How will the Packers work out their salary cap heading into 2013? Let's take a look.
