The NFL has announced that the salary cap for the 2015 season will be $143.28 million per team, although that number doesn’t depict how much money each team actually has to spend.
Teams have the right to carry over unused cap space from last season, which means that there’s a wide range of adjusted cap totals. The NFLPA has released those figures and the Jaguars are bringing the most money with them into the new league year.
The Jags have elected to carry over $21,768,205 and other adjustments from the 2014 season bring their adjusted cap total for 2015 to $168,486,107. The Browns are next at $161,767,400 million and the Eagles are third at a shade under $160 million. The Jets and Titans joined those teams in carrying over more than $10 million and round out the top five.
The Rams are at the other end of the spectrum as they elected to carry over no money from last year, leaving them with an adjusted cap of $144,673,387 for this year. That’s not the lowest in the league as the Chargers have $142,972,612 after adjustments from last year’s cap ate away most of their carried over money.
