2014 NFL Salary Cap: A look at all 32 teams

As a follow up to my post on the Miami Dolphins cap, breaking down the hit for each individual player presently on the roster, I have put together a complete list of the other 31 NFL clubs and where they stand at present cap wise, along with each teams key free agents.

I recently put together a rather exhausting spread sheet, that I then posted (Miami Dolphins salary cap 2014), on the Miami Dolphins roster as it sits presently and how each player impacts the Dolphins cap number in 2014 if the players contract is left as it is, the player is traded, the player is cut or if the player is cut/traded after June 1st. As a follow up I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the rest of the NFL's cap situation vs. Miami's. Where does each team sit with cap money entering the off-season and what key free agents does each have that they may look at resigning?

Before I get jumped on for the list from Miami, yes, I know that not all of the offensive line men will be resigned but I could see a couple of them brought back for depth and possibly as starters if the new GM is not able to replace the entire line, sans Pouncey, in one single off-season. After all, despite the large amount of cap space we have, this seems like quite the undertaking. Either way I would expect that the offensive line looks MUCH different from last seasons debacle.

I also have a somewhat strong feeling that Miami will trade or cut Matt Moore and cut Dimitri Patterson, giving them an additional 9.4 million in cap space. I could see Patterson being restructured or resigned but at a much lower cap number then his present number of 5.4 million. Of course this will happen with other teams around the NFL as well because as you can see many are up against the cap and still need money to not only sign enough players along with draft picks to fill the roster out but also to leave some leeway in their cap, giving them the ability to sign players mid season to fill in for injured players.

The projected "average" to sign draft picks for the 2014 draft is 5.4 million dollars. In fact if you take that amount and assume that each team has to be prepared to spend that number going in to the draft that would put 10 teams over the cap including the Patriots and would leave 3 more with hardly any cap space to spend on free agents. This of course means that many teams will be cutting players just to get under the cap further flooding the free agent market. I am too lazy to go back and see how this compares to past years but this seems like a year that will see some real bargains on the FA market which is good news when you are already a top 5 team cap wise with the ability to quickly add even more space.
