Cardinals' 2014 Salary Cap: Breaking Down Overall, Position-Specific Cap Space

The Cardinals have big decisions to make about their 2014 salary cap.

The Arizona Cardinals are going to have to battle a very difficult opponent that isn't an NFC West foe. The salary cap will prove to be one of the more challenging opponents Arizona faces, and they have to find a way to beat it.

The Cardinals have to contend with three players who will count for at least $11 million each against the cap in 2014 in Carson Palmer, Calais Campbell and Larry Fitzgerald. Arizona’s ability to spend will be reduced due to nearly $10 million in dead money.

The Cardinals don’t have a lot of cap space to work with, and there will be positions where money must be spent.

It’s going to be difficult for general manager Steve Keim to handle all of the free agents and work on getting a draft class under contract.

Start the slide show below and put some numbers to the situation. Information comes courtesy of Spotrac.com. All figures with individual players are their 2014 cap hit, unless stated.
