At a time when the NFL and the NFLPA rarely agree on anything, it should be no surprise that their respective versions of the cap numbers are different, too.

We posted on Monday the team-by-team numbers via a source with knowledge of the NFLPA version of the calculations.  The league has its own numbers, with multiple discrepancies.

The biggest gap comes in Kansas City.  The NFLPA numbers show that the Chiefs have $26.6 million in space.  The league has the Chiefs at nearly $16.4 million.

At the other end of the spectrum, the union shows that the Bills have $7.9 million in space.  The league has the Bills at more than $15.6 million.

  1. Why did you post the NFLPA’s idea of the cap numbers? I didn’t realize that they were the deciders of what teams have to spend. Of course they are going to say “there’s more money out there to spend”

  2. Just my two cents here, but since the league is in the position of authority and the NFLPA is in the position of collectively negotiating on behalf of the players, what does it matter what the NFLPA’s numbers are?

    Its not like the NFLPA is going to, or even CAN, discipline a team for non cap compliance.

  3. I assume that the difference the contracts are first posted at the NFL and a short time later at the NFLPA causing a difference. The NFL would have the most current figures.

    While the NFLPA could not penalize a team, they can file a grievance if any team is not within the
    high or low boundaries of the cap at the end of the year.
