AFC Notes: Browns, Ravens, Steelers

     

Browns

  • The NFL and NFLPA are discussing a 2021 salary cap floor of $175 million, which is down from the $198.2 million this year. It’s possible that the figure could be pushed higher, depending on the revenue losses incurred by the league from the 2020 season.
  • Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap.com projects the Browns to have $29,143,720 of cap space next year, assuming the cap is set at $175 million.

Ravens

  • ESPN’s Jamison Hensley projects the Ravens will keep QB Trace McSorley as a third quarterback in 2020. 
  • At wide receiver, Hensley has De’Anthony Thomas and Jaleel Scott being squeezed out by Baltimore’s offseason additions.  
  • Hensley thinks Ravens UDFA TE Jacob Breeland nabs the third tight end spot ahead of fellow rookie UDFA Eli Wolf and Charles Scarff
  • He also has Ravens veteran OT Andre Smith on the wrong side of the roster bubble with Baltimore keeping just nine offensive linemen. 
  • Baltimore’s numerous additions on the defensive line could spell the end for 2019 fifth-round DL Daylon Mack and veteran DL Justin Ellis, per Hensley.
  • Hensley says Ravens officials have talked up second-year undrafted LB Otaro Alaka this offseason, so he could end up making the final roster. 
  • Hensley notes with CB Jimmy Smith‘s ability to play safety, the Ravens should only keep four in 2020, with the final spot coming down to either Geno Stone or DeShon Elliott

Steelers

  • The NFL and NFLPA are discussing a 2021 salary cap floor of $175 million, which is down from the $198.2 million this year. It’s possible that the figure could be pushed higher, depending on the revenue losses incurred by the league from the 2020 season.
  • Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap.com projects the Steelers to have -$15,829,828 of cap space next year, assuming the cap is set at $175 million.
