I’ve been getting a lot of salary cap questions lately, and that led me to want to figure out some up to date salary cap figures for each team in the NFL. It took a little work since there has been a few players released in the past few days, but I believe these numbers are accurate as of the time that I’m writing this.
A couple weeks ago, a cap number of $18 million was floating around for the Seahawks. That number turned out out to be incorrect. A number of Seahawks players had their 2013 salary increased because of playing time or performance clauses in their contracts, Paul McQuistan and Max Unger among others.
Very interesting to me is that all 3 of the our NFC West Rivals are currently over the cap. This means that they have to cut players to get under the cap, even if they let all of their own free agents walk.
For instance, the 49ers have no cap room to re-sign safety Dashon Goldston or wide receiver Randy Moss. If they wish to bring those two players back, they’ll first have to cut other players to clear enough cap room to do so. I’d like to break down some of the other cap issues from our division, but I think I’ll save that for another post.
Also, if you were curious as to why the Jets hired away the Seahawk’s “salary cap guy” to be their GM, instead of selecting a talent evaluator, the below list will tell you all you need to know. The Jets must clear 23 million in salary between now and early March just to get down to the cap, and that’s before they start trying to fill the many holes on that roster.
Anyways, here are the current cap figures for all 32 NFL teams.
