NFL free agency begins Tuesday. The Falcons are in decent shape, but may need to get out the scissors in order to bring on impact talent.

NFL free agency is set to begin in about four hours. Thanks to whatever it was that the NFL made of the Dallas Cowboys' and Washington Redskins' financial dealings during the uncapped year, 28 teams will have an extra $1.6 million to spend this year. The New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders will not get that bonus, while the Cowboys and Skins have to decide how to split their cap penalty between 2012 and 2013.

Using NFL.com's base numbers and adding in that $1.6 million figure Adam Schefter reported, here's the cap standing at the moment, for the most part (this doesn't include deals from Monday, such as Randy Moss signing with the 49ers):

Arizona: -$12.1 million
Atlanta: $8.6M
Baltimore: $14.6M
Buffalo: $24.6M
Carolina: $2.9M
Chicago: $25.1M
Cincinnati: $40.6M
Cleveland: $16.6M
Dallas: -$2.7M (pending NFL penalty)
Denver: $43.9M
Detroit: -$5.7M
Green Bay: $7.2M
Houston: $2.2M
Indinapolis: $14.7M
Jacksonville: $36.1M
Kansas City: $23.9M
Miami: $11.4M
Minnesota: $25.6M
New England: $17.1M
New Orleans: $6M
New York Giants: $3.2M
New York Jets: $14.6M
Oakland: $640,000
Philadelphia: $15.5M
Pittsburgh: $3.4M
San Diego: $17.9M
Seattle: $29.3M
San Francisco: $22.3M
St. Louis: $11.4M
Tampa Bay: $46.5M
Tennessee: $26.7M
Washington: $16.4M (pending NFL penalty)

The Atlanta Falcons don't have a ton of room, but they're better off than about a third of the league, especially since they've just about got all their desired re-signings done. Atlanta could still release a couple of expensive players to help them in their reported pursuit of Mario Williams, for instance, while players like Todd McClure, Mike Peterson, and James Sanders could return at affordable prices.
