With $18.3 million under the salary cap, the Green Bay Packers rank sixth highest among the 32 National Football League teams in available money under the salary cap – that according to the list below that was put together by Mike Florio of profootballtalk.com.

The Cincinnati Bengals, with $28.9 million in their war chest, leads the league with most money available. The top five is rounded out by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (28.8 million), Cleveland Browns ($28.7 million), Jacksonville Jaguars ($26.6 million), and Philadelphia Eagles ($26.3 million).

The Packers have the most money available among all NFC North teams, mostly because they haven’t played the free agency game – though they have dedicated money for the three-year deal the signed ILB Brad Jones to. They have also offered restricted free agent tenders to Sam Shields and Evan Dietrich-Smith.

The other NFC North teams and their available money are as follows:

Lions:  $7.2 million.

Bears:  $5.3 million.

Vikings:  $5.1 million.

The Dallas Cowboys, the poster boys of bad cap management, is sitting just $51,000 under the cap after working with players to restructure their deals. The Carolina Panthers sit just above the Cowboys in a little better shape with $936,000 available. The Cowboys and Panthers are the only two teams under $1 million.

Here the full list:
