    The NFL and the NFLPA are expected to officially ratify the new CBA on Thursday. Per Mark Maske of the Washington Post, this means that every team must be under the salary cap as of Friday.
    On Thursday, we listed the seven teams that need to trim some fat, as of Tuesday. We also have listed the 11 teams with more than $20 million in space, as of Tuesday.
    So what of the other 14 teams? Here’s where they stood, as of Tuesday: Redskins ($18.7 million); Colts ($15.7 million); Packers ($15.4 million); Titans ($13.6 million); Saints ($10.5 million); Patriots ($9.2 million); Jets ($7.6 million); Dolphins ($6.6 million); Ravens ($6.6 million); Chargers ($5.0 million); Eagles ($3.8 million); Falcons ($2.6 million); Rams ($490,000); Giants ($290,000).
    During training camp and the preseason, salary cap compliance is determined by looking at the cap numbers for the 51 highest-paid players on the team. Once the season begins, all 53 players plus players on injured reserve must fit under the spending maximum.
