Updated cap numbers, as of Monday

Monopoly-Money 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.

Seahawks $20.5 million.

Cowboys $18.6 million.

Bears $18.1 million.

Bengals $17.5 million.

49ers $17.5 million.

Redskins $13.6 million.

Browns $12.8 million.

Dolphins $10.7 million.

Jets $8.6 million.

Titans $8.4 million.

Patriots $8.3 million.

Packers $7.5 million.

Cardinals $7.2 million.

Ravens $7.1 million.

Raiders $6.1 million.

Rams $6.0 million.

Eagles $5.8 million.

Colts $5.4 million.

Vikings $4.5 million.

Chargers $4.3 million.

Saints $4.2 million.

Lions $2.9 million.

Texans $2.4 million.

    Jags so far under the salary cap they call it the salary stocking.

  3. kd75 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:17 PM

    Wow, the Giants couldn’t even afford to hire me…

  4. cantonbound13 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:20 PM

    Can the Dolphins use that 10 million to buy a new owner?

  5. rundmc81 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:24 PM

    Shame on you Al Davis for showing everyone that they need to mind their own business when it comes to the salary cap!!

  6. dafixisin says: Oct 4, 2011 1:25 PM

    Raiders with just enough money to fork over a high draft pick for a CB that can actually cover somebody.

  7. seneca1ss says: Oct 4, 2011 1:27 PM

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

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

    If only Jerry Jones were a bigger free spender like that Mike Brown guy.

    For F’s sake, sign Forte and Briggs.

    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.

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

    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?

    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.

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

  17. awhite46 says: Oct 4, 2011 2:04 PM

    @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

  18. bucx01 says: Oct 4, 2011 2:12 PM

    It not how much you spend, but who you spend it on that counts.

  19. rockinron2 says: Oct 4, 2011 2:21 PM

    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

  20. scytherius says: Oct 4, 2011 2:21 PM

    With a team like the Packers have, how on EARTH do they have a dime left to spend??

  21. broncobillie says: Oct 4, 2011 2:23 PM

    Gotta hand it to the Bucs and Bills for doing so much with so little…

    @waitingguilty – awesome take!! :)

  22. dukemarc says: Oct 4, 2011 2:33 PM

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

  23. wringworm says: Oct 4, 2011 2:34 PM

    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!

  24. blackandtealforeal says: Oct 4, 2011 2:44 PM

    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.

  25. preludetosmack says: Oct 4, 2011 2:50 PM

    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.

  26. thefiesty1 says: Oct 4, 2011 2:56 PM

    It’s no wonder why the Jags and Chiefs suck.

  27. mjs2012 says: Oct 4, 2011 3:19 PM

    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.

  28. nygdefenserules says: Oct 4, 2011 3:56 PM

    Maybe this is proof to Osi why the Giants can’t give him a long term deal…..

    DeSean Jackson and MAtt Forte have no proof in their team’s checking account!

  29. unbreakable02215 says: Oct 4, 2011 4:30 PM

    Belichick needs to make a trade of one of those
    future picks for the best pass rusher he can get.

  30. kev86 says: Oct 4, 2011 4:50 PM

    If the Giants offered me 70K to work on the penske file for the rest of the year, I’d take it.

  31. bigbluefan1 says: Oct 4, 2011 4:55 PM

    wow good thing I paid for my seats or the giants would be broke

  32. beelicker says: Oct 4, 2011 5:37 PM

    @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.

    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.
