Even though the Buffalo Bills are now $20.9 million under the estmated $121 million salary cap for 2013 after cutting George Wilson and Nick Barnett, they still have a lot of work to do if they want to sign free agents and rookies. The team needs about $5.5 million in cap space for their 2013 draft choices, $6.8 million for a franchise tag to retain the rights to safety Jairus Byrd, and a tender offer for restricted free agent David Nelson is $1.3 million, writes Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News. That's $13.6 million gone right there. Then, assumingly, they're going to go after 1 or 2 free agents, that's possbily $7-8 million. As it stands right, the Bills' top 12 cap figures count for $116 million: Mario Williams ($12.4 million), Fitzpatrick ($10.45 million), Kelsay ($5.975 million), Kyle Williams ($5.95 million), Stevie Johnson ($5.67 million), Marcell Dareus ($5.56 million), C.J. Spiller ($5.04 million), Terrence McGee ($4.6 million), Mark Anderson ($4 million), Brad Smith ($3.75 million), Fred Jackson ($3.7 million) and Eric Wood ($3.34 million). var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
