It is impossible to go shopping without money in the bank account in the NFL.
This offseason plenty of teams have it because of the $10 million salary cap increase, which raised the salary cap to $133 million.
When you factor in carry over from past years there are seven teams with more than $30 million this offseason, and only four franchises (New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers and the Carolina Panthers) find themselves in cap hell, hemorrhaging to the point veterans still need to be cut just to sign the 2014 draft class.
Here is a look at the 2014 team-by team cap room heading into Tuesday's start of free agent.
