How Pats have spent this offseason

By Field Yates

The question we often ask throughout the offseason is how much money (see: cap space) a team has left. As things currently stand, the Patriots have roughly $9.215 million in remaining cap room for 2013, which buys them some flexibility in the event that they want to extend a player at some point this season.
