NFL Spending By Team Over Last Four Seasons

The NFLPA has released the official data on team spending over the last four seasons. The Collective Bargaining Agreement stipulates that each team must utilize 89% of the salary cap over two four-year periods, 2013-16 and 2017-20. As previously reported, the Raiders are the only team that has yet to satisfy that requirement for the closing period. The CBA also requires the league, as a whole, to spend 95% of the cap, in cash, for the same period. That requirement has been easily met.

Here is the full rundown of every team’s spending in declining order:

Philadelphia Eagles – $613,928,134
Denver Broncos – $587,712,791
Seattle Seahawks – $584,305,975

    Philly at the top and Patriots near the bottom….hmmmm. Guess you don’t always get what you pay for.

      It’s a salary capped league, so there’s not much deviation in terms of spending. Scouting, player development and coaching staffs are more impactful than money spent.

    The pats are at the bottom because cap money and real money are 2 very different things. They tell all their fans they spend the max. A big lie. They are the cheapest team in the league. The raiders will pay Carr and Mack and will clear the penalty easily.

      They will be lucky if they can extend both!
      I do not see Mack extending. He will want to test the waters and go for Miller money

    Wows, these numbers are just player salaries? How many players are on a team, 50? I would imaging there is a league minimum salary as well, but If the Quarterback makes $20M, the Offensive Line makes $100M..quickly becomes mind boggling.
