Buccaneers | Looking Ahead

Len Pasquarelli reports for ESPN.com the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have $76.696 million in salary cap room already committed next season. That figure could be a bit higher, because of bonuses earned in 2002 that will count against next year's cap, and some so-called "escalators" that might be in contracts. The projected cap limit for 2003 is about $75 million. Tampa Bay only $4.97 million in "dead money," salary cap space accounted for by players no longer with the team. One plus, relatively speaking, is that Tampa Bay won't have to invest cap room in a first-round draft choice. The Bucs have only one quarterback, starter Brad Johnson, under contract for next year, with both Rob Johnson and Shaun King only about four weeks removed from free agency.
