2020 NFL Cap Space, By Team

As shown by Le’Veon Bell‘s recent deal with the Chiefs, big name free agents can come available at any point throughout the season. His contract wasn’t particularly pricey, but teams like to keep cash on hand during the year, especially when mulling potential trades before the deadline. Excess cap room can also be rolled over from year-to-year and give clubs the opportunity to lock up their most valuable players with extensions.

Here are the most recent figures for each team, via Over The Cap:

  1. Cleveland Browns – $33.1MM
  2. New York Jets – $27.9MM
  3. Dallas Cowboys — $23.9MM

    Wow Vikings dangerously close to the cap with a dangerously bad roster.

      • Oooof

        They’re not tanking for Lawrence–it’s basically impossible on two fronts. Moving on from Cousins this offseason would come with a $41 million cap hit next year alone. They also still have two games against the Lions and one against the Jags, and they’re only currently in line for the 6th pick. The Vikings are bad, but it’s very unlikely they’d be able to tank past the Jets, even if they wanted to. Not to mention the coach and GM probably don’t want to tank themselves out of jobs.

          • Oooof

            Maybe. At this point, I honestly couldn’t tell you how that debate will look in a couple of weeks. Neither team has beaten anyone good. Would it surprise you if they split those games? Because projecting them for any wins going forward would likely take them out of the running for Lawrence.

            Vikings lost their top 3 defensive pro bowl players due to COVID and injury With them back next season and a top pick plus 8 others the Vikings are set to roll

          Tanking for Trevor doesn’t demand they boot Cousins off the roster immediately after the draft pick is made. They could let him sit a year or even 2..maybe get some mop up duty or whatever along the way..
          However, I agree it is unlikely the Vikes will have the worst record and “earn” the top pick.
          But you don’t pass on a potential franchise QB because your current 1 is making a lot of money. GB reminded us of that with the J-Love pick last spring… (Major eye roll in case anyone thinks I seriously believe Love is a potential franchise QB..)

            Ironically it was the Packers who took Rodgers in the first round even though they already had a franchise QB in Favre. Rodgers sat for 3 years before he got his shot. You just never know.

      According to the link, the Eagles have $17 million, not $18 million.

      Someone needs to throw the Lions a bone, right?

      They haven’t won a championship since 1957. That’s 63 years ago!

    It might be helpful to post this list in order from most $ to least $ …or at least alphabetically, maybe by division? This is just random

    Wow. Minnesota is in serious trouble. And I can’t help but wonder that when they made the trade for Yannick that they thought the season was going to be a lot different. I guess they didn’t foresee Hunter missing the season.

      That’s what happens when you neglect an offensive line like they have years. Lousy free agent pick ups and terrible O-line drafting…Elflein…Rieff…Sumia…the battle is won and lost at the line of scrimmage and they get dominated there on both sides week in and week out. Time for Zimmer to ride off into the sunset..followed closely by Spielman. The Wilfs aren’t going to tolerate this crap much longer.

      This season a joke anyway with all the picks they have plus top 10 or higher the Vikings will roll next year
