    As we turn over the calendar to July, and with training camps opening in a few weeks, it's a good time to look at how much salary-cap space remains for each team.

    According to a source with access to NFL salary-cap data, AFC teams have $162,554,428 in available space, led by the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans, who are Nos. 1 and 2 in the league, respectively. (Don't think Maurice Jones-Drew and Josh Scobee haven't noticed where the Jaguars rank.)

    NFC teams have $111,397,452 in available cap space, led by the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, despite those two teams being among the league's big spenders this offseason.

    With three teams in the top 10, the AFC South has nearly $64 million in available cap space. Teams in the NFC West have a league-low $19,019,732 in available cap space. Here's how it all breaks down:


    Jacksonville Jaguars: $25,115,885
    Tennessee Titans: $19,970,080
    Cleveland Browns: $17,774,764
    Kansas City Chiefs: $16,548,048
    Cincinnati Bengals: $16,309,693
    Philadelphia Eagles: $15,879,570
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers: $15,740,231
    Indianapolis Colts: $14,595,514
    Green Bay Packers: $11,255,804
    Denver Broncos: $10,878,461
    New England Patriots: $10,873,988
    Minnesota Vikings: $10,595,534
    Carolina Panthers: $8,769,801
    Seattle Seahawks: $7,470,071
    Buffalo Bills: $7,382,319
    Dallas Cowboys: $7,188,021
    Washington Redskins: $6,970,162
    New York Jets: $6,044,153
    Arizona Cardinals: $4,552,576
    Miami Dolphins: $4,458,211
    Houston Texans: $4,053,256
    Chicago Bears: $3,976,700
    Detroit Lions: $3,775,829
    Pittsburgh Steelers: $3,734,063
    St. Louis Rams: $3,602,486
    San Francisco 49ers: $3,394,599
    New York Giants: $3,119,114
    San Diego Chargers: $2,862,095
    Atlanta Falcons: $2,834,873
    New Orleans Saints: $2,272,081
    Oakland Raiders: $1,347,040
    Baltimore Ravens: $606,858


    The figures above do not include the recent signings of Falcons safety Chris Hope, Vikings defensive end Jeff Charleston or Saints rookie defensive tackle Akiem Hicks, each of whom is expected to have minimal impact on their respective teams' current cap situation.

    Wth did the Rams spend so much money on? Ugh. I know Bradford/Long/Laurinaitis/Finnegan couldn't have been cheap but still.

    The Lions are in pretty bad shape. Had to restructure like 3 deals just to get under the cap this season, but hey we have CJ locked up for a longgg time

    Does it make me a bad person to be hoping that the Madden curse strikes again?

    I don't think that includes the extension Chris Ling signed at the start of camp. With the extra first rounders there will likely be tough decisions to be made.

    But the new rookie scale is much cheaper than the old one.
