Buccaneers salary finder

Look no further than BucsBlitz.com to keep up with the salaries of every Buccaneers player in 2007. We've got them all listed in this article.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter the final days of the offseason with several more draft picks to sign, salaries that will add to the current load on the Buccaneers' payroll.

Tampa Bay entered the signing period with $6.012 million to spend on their 10 rookie draft picks.

Before the Buccaneers signed linebacker Adam Hayward, offensive tackle Chris Denman and defensive tackle Greg Peterson, they had $84,479,000 in base salary committed to its current roster, according to information compiled by the NFL Players Association. That does not, however, reflect the Bucs' current cap figure for two reasons.

First, during the offseason only the top 51 players salaries count against the cap (all 53 count against the cap during the season). Second, the figure does not reflect each player's actual cap figure. A player's signing and roster bonuses can inflate their cap figure, depending on how the Bucs spread out the cap hit for those bonuses. The cap for the 2007 season is $109 million.

For the record, Bucs general manager Bruce Allen told the media in June that the team is not in danger of going over the cap this season, and should be about $25 million under the cap in 2008, when it goes up to $116 million.

This is the BucsBlitz.com salary finder. As a player's bonus information and cap figure are confirmed, it will be added to this list. As a rookie's contract is confirmed, it will also be added to this list. Eventually the finder will give you everything they need to know about their favorite player's salary for 2007. Plus, players are grouped by the year they become free agents, so you will know when a player's contract comes up.

A new edition of the BucsBlitz.com salary finder will appear periodically on this site.
