Keep, cut or restructure? Packers have moves to make before free agency

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- J.J. Watt or no J.J. Watt, the Green Bay Packers have work to do in order to get under the salary cap before March 17.

The exact cap limit for 2021 has not been announced yet but as things stand today, the Packers are in the neighborhood of $20 million to $25 million over where they will need to be on March 17, when the top 51 contracts on rosters must be under the cap. The cap can be no lower than $175 million this season, but indications are it might be slightly higher (around $180 million).
