Salary Cap Update


The per-team unadjusted salary cap this year is $120.6 million. But no team has an actual salary cap of $120.6 million.

Via various accounting devices (including the ability to carry over unused cap space from 2011 and the penalties imposed on the Cowboys and Redskins for treating the uncapped year of 2010 as, you know, an uncapped year), the actual numbers have been adjusted.

A league source has shared the full, per-team, adjusted cap list with PFT. It shows that the Jaguars have a total of $148.4 million to spend in 2012, with the Redskins at only $115.9 million.

The Jags have a higher number due to the amount of cap space that was carried from 2011. And the excess can be carried year to year under the new labor deal, spending none of it.

Next year, when the per-team spending minimum kicks in, it will apply only to the unadjusteed cap. No team is required — ever — to spend any of the excess that comes from carrying money over from year to year, or any other amount above the unadjusted cap.

For the Redskins, who are nearly $5 million below the cap, the difference comes from the $18 million in cap penalties imposed in 2011, with another $18 million to come in 2013. Even though, as the league said in court documents filed last week, “no rules or agreements were broken” by the Redskins and Cowboys.

We are going to need the money to carry over to take Brees salary hit the next few years probably. good to see we have a little wiggle room. I could be wrong but doesnt his cap hit go up every year.

there's a lot of varying views on the cap forecast. Most prolly peg a new TV deal in 2014 as what will give it the biggest step change upward in coming years.

Loomis isn't a football personnel guy at heart but a purebred bean counter. If there's one thing he has proven expert at it is cap management.

Seeing loss of personnel that you might like to keep for play but cannot afford to pay is just the reality of the cap function. Nicks, Meachem, & Porter were all liked. It's just a matter of weighing performance and role to cost. The better your team is the more you have to deal with this fruit of success.

Just on the basis of contract Will Smith is either gone or radically restructured lower in 2013. Harper might be crossing the threshold from kinda expensive for what he does to overpaid. Cutting him provides $5+mil in 2013 & $6mil in 2014. There's plenty of moves that can facilitate getting an impact player or two in free agency each year. Ya just hafta make sure those moves are successful.

This is also why solid drafting is essential to continued success. We got Carl Nicks who played at an elite level while only paying him 10% of what his market value proved to be. We're doing the same thing with Jimmy Graham currently but will likely have to address it proactively after this season.

Remember though Saints were punished for same thing, as were Raiders IIRC.

Since we weren't as egregious though our punishment was simply not getting any of the Skins/Cowboy cap that was spread around.
