In response to 49Patriots' comment:
The Pats don't have room left, they're going to want to use the money they have left on the draft.
Worst of all, we're not going to get a real draft. BB is going to trade down to pick up a 4,5 and 6.
I just posted in the other thread we have aprox $12.9 million.
That was before Vollmer
They have about $10m left today, pending any other cuts or eextensions. If they keep their draft choices, they will need about $3.3 to sign them to slot. Leaves about $6.5....they usually like to carry around $4-5m....
His estimate included Vollmer,www.patscap.com

According to my figures the Patriots' 2013 cap figure is for $110,655,225 with 65 (64 active, 0 on Injured Reserve, 1 on Reserve/Non-NFI) players. I now believe that reserve players like Brian Waters do not count against the cap. I have the Patriots' 2013 dead money at $6,644,196. $110,655,225 + $6,644,196 = $117,299,421. The cap limit for the 2013 season is $123 million. The Patriots' adjusted cap number is $129,656,344. Therefore, I have the Patriots under their adjusted cap limit by about $12.4 million. On the 19th of March Greg Bedard tweeted that the Patriots are under their adjusted cap by $15,271,750 so my numbers were off by $164,827 at that time.
