NEEDS: GM Chris Ballard is still searching for key pieces after three-year playoff drought ended. And Ballard has most cap room in NFL. Expect him to look for complementary receiver to T.Y. Hilton, upgrades to secondary, finding another pass rusher, and adding depth at linebacker. But Ballard has been budget conscious over last two seasons and would prefer to keep focus on own players. He’s already re-signed K Adam Vinatieri, RG Mark Glowinski and DT Margus Hunt, and would like to keep Desir and Geathers.
AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $95.6 million.
