2012 Salary Cap will be $120.6M

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/11/if-cards-want-manning-theyll-need-to-scramble-to-create-cap-space/

Amazingly, the Cardinals could have carried over $7.04 million. They opted only to carry over $2 million. (In fairness to the Cardinals, there's a chance they engaged in a transaction that they somehow chewed up $5.04 million in 2011 cap space in the period between February 12 and February 28. We're trying to find out if that's what happened, because it makes no sense not to carry over every penny available.)

If they'd carried over the full amount, the Cardinals would have had to clear only $11.4 million by Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET. More importantly, the Cardinals would have had an extra $5 million to pay Manning.

For the Cardinals, the challenge will be to clear $16.4 million and then enough beyond that to fit Peyton's contract under the cap.

The cards also need some cap space to fix that dreadful Oline. Denver has 40 plus mill in cap space to add help at WR and on defense. Plus unlike the cards they already have an all pro left tackle in place to protect manning

Once you are under the cap on tuesday 4 est you then aren't able to go over. Any contract that would either violate the cap or put a team over the cap is rejected.

Cowboys lose $10 million in cap space, Redskins lose $36 million in space. Can split it over 2012 and 2013 any way they want. More at ESPN.

All that money goes to 28 other teams -- $1.6 million each -- except for Saints and Raiders, who don't get any but don't lose any.
