NFL: Salary Cap update

February 14, 2012 at 11:48 pm 2 comments

The NFL season never ends.  After the Super Bowl, the offseason begins…which as the name indicates is a season in itself.  From free agency beginning in March to the NFL Draft to camps, etc. etc.  In preparation for the start of this season, here are estimates of NFL cap figures and space remaining heading into the 2012 offseason.

The 2011 salary cap was $120.375 million, and the 2012 be similar (the number is based on revenues, TBD).  Significance space is in bold and over the cap in red, who must get under by the start of free agency.

Please note: these numbers are certainly not exact, they’re the best estimates I could compile with assists from ESPN’s John Clayton and Pro Football Talk.  Thus, if you have any knowledge on a particular team feel free to share.

Arizona $7 million
Atlanta $30.6 million
Baltimore $6.2 million
Buffalo $19.3 million
Carolina -$9.6 million
Chicago $7.7 million
Cincinnati $60 million
Cleveland $8.9 million
Dallas $17.1 million
Denver $50.7 million
Detroit $1.5 million
Green Bay $5.48 million
Houston $3.3 million
Indianapolis $2.5 million
Jacksonville $45 million
Kansas City $62.9 million
Miami $9.05 million
Minnesota $1.95 million
New England $20 million
New Orleans $4.22 million
New York Giants -$7.3 million
New York Jets $8.39 million
Oakland -$11 million
Philadelphia $11.01 million
Pittsburgh -$11.7 million
San Diego $9.2 million
San Francisco $39.3 million

    Wow…the numbers PFT are not how much salary cap room teams have in 2012. It is what they have left over from 2011 to spend in 2012 IN ADDITION to their cap space in 2012. So that $21.3M you list for the Seahawks needs to be added to their 2012 cap room. They are sitting at $80 million for 2012 so far, which includes $7+M that Marcus Trufant isn’t going to be paid. Assuming a $124M cap, that would leave Seattle with $64.7M to spend…up to almost $72M if they cut Trufant.
