As we go through the latest St. Louis Rams salary cap breakdown, we will find that tough decisions loom if the the team is going to create the cap space they need.   

The NFL salary cap is projected to rise from its 2012 level of $120.6 million to either $121 or $121.5 million in 2013.

Prior to extending the contracts of Chris Long and James Laurinaitis before the start of the 2012 regular season, the Rams were set to have oodles of 2013 cap space. 

Before the ink dried on those two contracts, the Rams 2013 cap space went from cavernous to constricted. 

With all of their existing contracts, the Rams 2013 cap hit, as of 02/15/2013, is $120.656 million. And that is just for the top 51 players, which are the only contracts that count against the cap in the offseason. If we take into account the dead money for 2013, (thanks, Billy Devaney) that number jumps to $124.722 million.

Clearly, players will be cut, and others will have their contracts restructured.

Let's break it down by position and see where the Rams can save some money.
