Breaking Down the Packers 2009 Salary Cap

ESPN’s Insider section just did a full-scale blowout about the salary cap for each and every team around the league. Here’s what they had to say on the Packers:

2009 salary cap: $137,421,226
Player with highest cap number: QB Aaron Rodgers ($9,652,500; 7.0 percent of cap)
Player no longer with club who has highest cap number: DE Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila ($1,571,432; 1.1 percent of cap; 21st-highest on club)
Player who has to live up to cap number: RB Ryan Grant ($4,400,000; 3.2 percent of cap; 10th-highest on club)

When looking at running back Ryan Grant’s 2008 statistics, one could make the argument that he didn’t have a bad season. But he also didn’t have a great season, with 1,203 yards, just four touchdowns and less than 4 yards per carry. During his breakout 2007 season, Grant ranked 12th in rushing value according to DYAR. Last year, he was 43rd.
