I thought I'd throw this one up there as a discussion starter for today.  It contains all the probable 25-man roster candidates, and what the payroll looks like so far for 2014.

And here it is.  Also, please let me know if there are any errors:

The situation with Barton is unclear; he could be again offered a non-guaranteed contract and that would lower the overall payroll.  Either way, though, 2014's payroll will rival 2007's as a franchise high.
