NFL Cap Space Rankings

Here’s a look at the current NFL cap space for each team. These figures were provided by OverTheCap.com and are as of Oct. 20. For a more detailed breakdown of every team’s cap situation, as well as cap figures for future years, head over to OTC’s Salary Cap page.

It’s worth mentioning that this is just a snapshot of each team’s cap situation and things change with every roster move. Also, not ever reported roster move will be reflected in these figures, as it typically takes a day or two to fully process agreed upon deals.

We’ll post updates throughout the season, so be sure to check back for the latest.

I check the numbers over the weekend, as things should be much more accurate by then.

I don’t understand how a team like the patriots who are over the cap are gonna be able to sign mccourty and revis , can you guys explain this one and I understand they will get fined but I don’t think the fines and penalty are bad enough

Does this include the new cap space being around an extra 10 or does it not include that?

Yes, these figures take into account the new $143.28 million salary cap for the 2015 season.

As we mentioned above, the numbers will change in the coming days as roster moves such as extensions and cuts are factored in. Remember, this is just a snap shot as of right now and cap space changes on a daily basis.

No teams can be in the red once free agency is open for business, so we’ll post an update in the coming days.

This is based on the list from the NFL on what space remained for this season, once the season is over this will change, the Giants for one are projected to have 16 million in space next season while the cowboys will be something like 30 million over the limit

Of course. These figures are as of October 16th, which is noted above. This is how things stand right now. We’ll have another update next week once players are signed/cut.

Sorry, usually sources are cited after the referenced material. You had links to other resources after that statement “free agents etc.” Given how off he was on this estimation I would be leery toward posting anything referencing these numbers without someone/something more reliable. Most of us with our teams knocked out are fixated on the off-season at this point, which basically encompasses the salary cap space available. If I were a Jets fan, that number would make a bad situation worse and should it be inaccurate that would be pretty frustrating. Nevertheless, great website and thanks for the early free… Read more »

Your calculations are way off, at least for the Redskins. I am guessing your not really a research writer given the nature of the website but when talking stats I would recommended some citations. Here is the absolute best website for Washington’s salary figures: http://www.thewarpath.net/WarpathRedskinsCap.htm. We have 1.2M of carry overand 100.6m on the books with an estimated cap of 121M for 2013 and 18M cap penalty bring WAS to 3.6M of cap sapce. Then deduct 1.9M for the dead space Cooley left and we are talking roughly 1.7M. Should Hall and Moss end up on the chopping block there… Read more »

31 mill. penalty, minus 2 first round picks and a broken QB this team is going to tread water for a few more years anyway.

Without Pro Bowl OLB Orakpo, above average S Merriweather, DE Carriker, TE Fred Davis, and RT J. Brown and or Garcon most of the season while playing rookie QB RGIII, Cousins, and RB Morris WAS managed to win the division. RGIII’s style of QB is more demanding on the knee than others but it is in no way as pivotal as a RB. Cousins also showed some promise during his brief stint without much molding or practice. Morris could be an elite back for a few years. Orakpo and Kerrigan might finally become the Osi/Tuck tandem many thought would have… Read more »

of course he’s above average. Have you ever watched him play? lulz? What are you 6?

I watched him play for years. Al he can do is hit. That’s it. He gets burned just as often if not more than most safeties. Talk about overrated.

You just said “lulz” and then asked about someone’s age.

Have you watched him play? You must be 6 if you think he’s above average. lulz.

The numbers were provided by ESPN’s John Clayton, which you’ll notice is sourced above. They are by no means our own calculations.
