Updated cap numbers, as of Monday

AP

Even though the season has begun and all big-money free agents have been signed, teams can still use their remaining salary cap money on players whose contracts will be expiring next year or thereafter.

Thus, it remains important to keep an eye on how much cash teams can still spend.

For teams close to the limit, the question becomes whether enough money will be available if a current starter is injured, and needs to be replaced.

The full list of cap numbers as of Monday appears after the break.Jaguars $35.4 million.

Chiefs $27.6 million.

Bucs $27.2 million.

Broncos $25.4 million.

Bills $22.7 million.

  1. The Buccaneers would get down to Tampa Bay Rays 41 Million dollar payroll if they were allowed.

    The Glazers Family <<<<————- Cheap Alert!!

  2. The salary cap is fictitious. “Cap Jail”, doesn’t exist. Name me one team ever to go over the cap and be either penalized or not able to still manage roster moves. Please.

  3. $35 million and change under the cap for the Jaguars… moving vans for L.A. don’t come cheap!

    If I remember right, that’s how the Donkeys won their 2 Super Bowls.

    They can’t go over the cap. All moves are subject to approval by the league. If a move would put a team over the cap, the league would not approve it. Get it, genius?

  6. It’s worth noting alot of teams like Dallas, are going to roll that cap money over to next year (Dallas has 20 mil in dead cap next year) to cover the cuts they made in the offseason.

  7. I don’t know what is a bigger miracle…that the Redskins are 3-1 or that they are $13 million under the cap.

  8. @patstrustee

    The Jaguars at the beginning of the 2000’s were forced to cut players to make it under the cap.

    What you’re suggesting is the equivalent of declaring bankruptcy. That hasn’t happened yet but if the CBA in 2006 hadn’t been reworked then the Redskins would have had to do something to that effect.

    Also, the Broncos were penalized draft picks for paying players under the table

  9. The 2 main things I learned from this list are:

    1) The Giants are stuck with their injury depleted secondary

    2) The Steelers are stuck with their injury depleted offensive line

  10. 7.5 Million left? Sounds like a nice signing bonus and extension for Jermichael Finley is in order.

  11. are the Jags keeping cash spending down for a possible relo or sale???

    that’s a lot of dough to have available to a team that needs to put a$$es in the seats and is struggling on the field!

  12. Really Jags, $ 35.4 mil?
    Wow. Could have had some actual skill players for some of that $.
    Go ahead and fire the coach and save some more money. It doesn’t count toward the cap, but it will certainly bring some of the fans to the stadium.
    They’re acting schizophrenic in all their decisions.

  13. Bengals 17.5mil under the cap, and Carson Palmer’s $11mil aren’t counted because he’s ‘retired’.

    If he were to pop his head in the clubhouse just to sit the bench, the Bengals would be right around the top 10 in salary.

  14. So the Packers have room to extend Scott Wells and then they can use the Franchise Tag on Finley and then extend him, Matthews and Raji next season.

  15. @preludetosmack >>> Bengals 17.5mil under the cap, and Carson Palmer’s $11mil aren’t counted because he’s ‘retired’ <<<

    His 11.5 mil is down to around 8mil now due to weekly salary increments, plus if the French maid quitterback Garcon Palmierre showed now MFBrown could still assess a $30K per day fine from end of July for not reporting & then cut him so he'd be owing 1mil+ back to the Bengals.

  16. I must be wrong, but I thought the new CBA required all teams to spend 99% of the cap.

    Someone clue me in here, where am I going wrong?

    Don’t remember the actual percentage, but the teams don’t have to hit that number until some time in 2012 after the postseason.
