I will try to keep this up-to-date at least until free agency begins on March 13 in hopes that it will serve as a resource for those of you who want to mock offseason acquisitions. Cap space is going to dictate what teams can do. For example, Indianapolis and New Orleans both need 3-4 rush linebackers. Anthony Spencer is the best one on the market and will command a hefty contract. The likelihood of Indy being able to fit him in is great, due to their excess of cap space. Meanwhile, the likelihood of New Orleans signing him is miniscule, due to the team being over the cap right off the bat.
Wondering why your team is in red? You're above the salary cap. You're going to have to cut veterans, possibly useful players, to get back in line. Some space can be opened up by restructuring contracts with large base salaries, converting them into guaranteed money spread out over the remaining years of the contract...but remember that you are robbing Peter to pay Paul in these situations; restructuring too much will bite you in the ass hard in future seasons.
Please keep in mind that teams will need some cap space to sign their draft selections, too.
