The #Packers have officially reduced DE Johnny Jolly's salary to $715,000, knocking $1.8 million off the cap and putting them at $18M under.

Pretty sure we have 19.768mm per the NFLPA numbers according to Silverstein's article on 3/12 before the Brad Jones move. The comprehensive spreadsheet I've put together puts us at 18.97mm which I'll post later this week once I've looked into discrepancies and cleaned it up.

I imagine the Jones re-signing will put us at about 15.5ish going off that 19.768 number. 4-5mm for rookies gives us a modest 10-12mm to fill out the roster and take care of Rodge and Matthews. In the long run, sure seems smart not to re-sign Jennings. The Steven Jackson move I'm still disappointed about, but that's a different story entirely.

I've got the Packers at $19,217,486 prior to the Brad Jones re-signing. Once we do, that will probably cost a minimum of 1.715 million against this year's cap.

I've got them at 17,396,822 not counting Jones, Dietrich-Smith or Shields, but I'm also carrying 825,000 in dead money from Saturday based on this:

http://www.packers.com/news-and-events/ask-vic/article-1/Coaches-players-not-permitted-to-talk-about-football/bbbffe36-790e-4049-860e-cc1173f90112

That's the only place I've seen mention of dead money for Saturday. I talked to Jason from OTC and he doesn't think it's real but I'm assuming it is for now.

I'd guess the other discrepancies would be with contracts for newer guys like Kevin Hughes. If you'd like me to put up what I have, let me know.

Hmmm, looking at both OTC and Spotrac, I have a little bit of new dead money to add to the books.

After the Jones contract came out, I've got the Packers at $17,197,486. I'll update the OP soon.

Packers have $20.232 million in cap room after Jones contract. If they haven't changed Finley's contract today, that cap num stays same.

Jones received a $3 million signing bonus.

His base salaries were $1 million in 2013, $2.5 million in 2014 and $3.25 million in 2015. The contract also contains a $300,000 roster bonus ($18,750 for each game active) each year and a $200,000 workout bonus each year. The deal also contains unspecified escalator clauses in each of the final two years.

Jones will count $2.5 million against the salary cap in 2013, $4 million in 2014 and $4.75 million in 2015.

The 2014 and 2015 numbers will likely go up.

My numbers are a lot closer to Dougherty's numbers than Silverstein's from a couple weeks back, but that 20.232 does not include the contracts of EDS and Shields as they haven't yet signed their tenders. Assuming that goes well, we have $16.9mm according to me and Dougherty and $17.3mm according to Silverstein's number a week or so back.

Question: Is Jolly is currently considered dead money or is his salary back on the books because he's been reinstated. Not sure how that works.

Ahh, I was wondering why it was in the 20 range when nothing else I have seen is close. Makes sense, though.

There is no dead money on Jolly. He's at the min now.

According to the NFLPA, the Packers have roughly $17.7 million in cap space which is about 400k off from what I have. Good for sixth most in the NFL.

Tom Silverstein updates the dead money...

http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/green-bay-packers-count-little-dead-money-toward-cap-ed9dj89-201373111.html

I see that Saturday is on there for $825,000 as I mentioned earlier. Unfortunately, he says there are 15 players for $959,236 and I've got 16 players for $944,298. Rats. All the specifics he mentioned match.
