The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have around $10 million in cap space, OverTheCap.com estimates. According to NFLPA records, the Buccaneers currently have $6.8 million in cap space they'll carry over to next season, and the Bucs are on the hook for around $122 million in 2014 cap space. That's enough to sign a couple of reasonably-valued free agents, but not much more than that. The Bucs won't be able to sign any of the premium free agents with that kind of cap space, but they can easily create more space. While Carl Nicks' contract won't see him get cut, and cutting Mike Williams would similarly result in a hefty $6.4 million cap hit, releasing a few other players will give the Bucs a lot of cap relief. Most players account for very little dead money due to the way the Buccaneers have structured their contracts, making the creation of additional cap space very easy. Davin Joseph will almost certainly be cut, or at the very least he will have to take a hefty pay cut. He was one of the worst starting guards in the NFL last season, and his $6 million cap hit is much too large.
