February 17 NFL Salary Cap Space Update


Here is the salary cap space update for the start of the week of February 17. These numbers should be relatively current through Thursday’s signings. Please note that there are two uncertainties in these numbers. One deals with Matt Cassel of the Vikings as I am not 100% certain that he did void his contract so I have him in there. If he did void the deal the Vikings will gain around $3.3 million in cap space.

The second one is Larry English with the Chargers. According to documents we have English is a UFA and normally in the old CBA earning the automatic contract void was based on playing time that English should have earned as a rookie when he played well over 500 snaps. According to other reports the Chargers are disputing this and saying that English remains under contract. If he is under contract than the Chargers cap is worse by around $1.1 million.

Please note that these numbers do reflect the carryover from 2013 as well as an adjustment for Tim Tebow on the Broncos. It does not include RFA tenders, Franchise tags, projected cuts, or other 2013 adjustments

The biggest shifts from last weeks’ numbers include:

The Saints picking up about $13.4 million in cap room primarily through the release of OLB Will Smith, CB Jabari Greer, and S Roman Harper. The team also re-signed K Shayne Graham, T Bryce Davis, and CB Trevin Wade.

The Lions gained $9.58 million in cap room following the release of WR Nate Burleson and S Louis Delmas. They also officially re-signed C Dominic Raiola to a one year deal.

Tampa Bay gained $1.92 million in cap room with the release of T/G Gabe Carimi and DT Derek Landri.
