Official Salary Cap update for all 32 NFL teams as of today

Here are the cap numbers; first in order of most cap space to least cap space, and then in alphabetical order for reference purposes.

I. Most cap space to least cap space:

II. Alphabetical Order:

I'll post an update for these official figures in another two weeks. The overall cap number of six teams has changed since the last time I posted a league cap update two weeks prior to today, on June 23rd (click HERE for that post to compare the numbers). One club's cap number has increased in that two week time span--New England's (+$968,000)--while the cap number of five teams has decreased. Here are the five teams whose cap numbers have decreased:
  • Jacksonville (-$3,374,836)
  • Dallas (-$1,204,641)
  • Minnesota (-$120,000)
  • Detroit (-$65,000)
  • St. Louis (-$100,000)
As far as the rest of the NFC East is concerned, the Eagles are in excellent cap shape, both in the long term as well as the shirt term. The Cowboys are okay in the short term, but in the long term, they are playing with fire, and that will eventually get them burned. The Redskins, like the Giants, but even more than them, will have to make more room under the cap before the regular season begins.

The Giants are still going to need to make more room under the cap, as I previously pointed out, in order to cover regular season operational expenses, as well as to sign Justin Pugh (who will count against the Cap while the Top 51 rule is in effect) & Ryan Nassib (who won't count against the salary cap until the Top 51 rule ceases), and give Victor Cruz his new contract.
