So far the reports put the team at 11 undrafted players who have agreed to terms. Combined with 71 players on the active roster and eight draft picks, that leaves the roster full at 90 men.However, there will be one more spot open when rookie minicamp arrives this weekend. That is because according to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Packers have waived one player on Monday: offensive lineman Nico Siragusa.UPDATE: There will actually be two open spots. ESPN’s Rob Demovsky reports that the team is also waiving safety Jason Thompson as well. Both transactions showed up on Monday’s official NFL transaction wire.A fourth-round draft pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2017, Siragusa spent one season on the team’s active roster before landing on the practice squad for 2018. Green Bay signed him from the Ravens’ practice squad onto their active roster in December, however, and kept him around through the start of offseason workouts.However, there is suddenly a logjam at the guard position due to some offseason transactions. First, the Packers signed free agent Billy Turner, who is expected to either start at right guard or be a swing lineman. Then Cole Madison, last year’s fifth-round pick Womens Brett Favre Jersey , unexpectedly returned for the start of workouts. Finally, the addition of second-round draft pick Elgton Jenkins all but closed the door on Siragusa’s shot at a roster spot in 2019.Thompson spent a brief tenure on the practice squad last season and earned a futures contract after the season concluded. However, the Packers also added a safety early in the draft in first-round pick Darnell Savage, Jr.This now leaves the roster with two expected spot available for a tryout player after rookie camp. However, all of the reported undrafted free agent signees will need to pass their physical exams, which is no guarantee. Stay tuned later this week for more news on rookie camp. With official numbers out, here’s exactly where the Packers sit against the cap."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers officially have $14 million in salary cap space, with $4.7M needed for draft classMark Hoffman-USA TODAY SportsAll of the runaround about the Green Bay Packers’ cap space in the past week can come to an end right now. Thanks to the reporting of ESPN’s Field Yates, we have official cap numbers for every team in the NFL, and the Packers are pretty close to what we expected.In fact, the Packers’ real cap number is a tiny bit better than what is currently projected by Over the Cap Davon House Jersey White , and Spotrac, both of which have the team at just under $14 million. Yates’ numbers have the team just over $14 million, at $14,004,669:Does this mean that the Packers can go out and splurge on a few more players? Probably not. As always, teams need to reserve a little bit of cap space for their draft picks, and the Packers have ten selections in the 2019 NFL Draft, including two first-round picks.However, despite the total value of the Packers’ draft pool coming in at $10.3 million — a solid number, based on the NFL’s rookie wage scale — the team only needs to reserve about $4.7 million in space to sign those players. This is because during the offseason, only the largest 51 contracts (in terms of current-year cap hit) count towards the cap. As a result Kyler Fackrell Jersey White , signing a draft pick drops another player down out of that Top 51 group, while some draft picks’ contracts would not even make the Top 51.Here’s the full breakdown of the effective cap space required to sign the ten picks currently under the Packers’ control:2019 Packers Draft CapRoundPick 2019 CapReplacesNet Cap Effect RoundPick 2019 CapReplacesNet Cap Effect In this table, you can clearly see that only the first seven draft picks would displace an existing contract off the Top 51 list. Furthermore, in the case of the third-, fourth-, and fifth-round picks, the effective cap space needed to sign each player is less than $200,000.Totaling up the net cap effect of all these contracts brings the total to $4,717,318. Therefore, that is the minimum amount of cap space that the team must conserve in order to remain under the salary cap by signing players drafted in these ten slots — at least for the offseason. The number may change if the Packers make any draft-day trades , but for now that number is effectively set in stone (give or take a few dollars here and there on individual contracts).Thus, with just over $14 million in total cap space and the need to retain about $4.7 million to sign the draft picks, the Packers still have a little over $9 million in leftover cap space — $9,287,351, to be exact. As a team that likes to retain a few million each year for the regular season, Russ Ball has the Packers right on track for 2019.
