Now that the calendar has turned to June, we are less than two months away from training camps openings across the league.
For the most part, teams have signed the majority of their draft picks, added and subtracted free agents and given extensions to players already on the roster. It’s largely shaped the financial situations for teams as the season continues to approach.
With that in mind, it’s time to take another look at available cap space for the 32 teams across the league.
While teams can employ up to 90 players during the offseason, the salary cap is currently calculated by using only the top 51 most expensive contracts on a roster. That changes for the regular season as all players on the active roster, practice squad and injured reserve count against the cap.
The NFL Players Association keeps a database of projected salary cap space for each team in the league. While the numbers from the NFLPA and the official numbers from the league routinely differ, it’s still a rough gauge of where teams currently stand.
However, the database may not take into account post-June 1 releases as of yet. The releases of players such as LaMarr Woodley (Pittsburgh), Carlos Rogers (San Francisco), David Baas (NY Giants) and Miles Austin (Dallas) do not appear to be accounted for in the NFLPA records at this time.
Per the report, the Jacksonville Jaguars currently have the most cap space available in the league with over $28 million in available room. Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Steelers have the least amount of cap room with under $200,000 available, though that will be adjusted in regards to Woodley. The current report is from 10:30 p.m. ET.
Without further ado, the list of cap space is below ranked from most cap space to the least.
