Only one game remains in the 2013 NFL season: Super Bowl XLVIII. And while the vast majority of football fans are concentrating on the big game, 30 of the 32 NFL teams (congratulations to the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks) are already looking ahead to the next league year, which begins on March 11.
With the new year comes free agency, and the all-important salary cap comes into effect. Some teams are in better financial position than others, meaning they have a better chance of re-signing their own players and poaching from other squads.
Teams that are up against the cap or over it will have to get creative in getting sufficiently under, and that means "cap casualties" or players that are released to create financial flexibility.
Some squads loom as major players in free agency, while others appear to be in a spot of trouble. It'll be fascinating to see how it all shakes out.
In this column, we list the biggest salary cap question for every NFL team, whether it be retaining a specific player, the ability to bolster a certain position or if an overpriced veteran looms as a cap casualty.
