2012 NFL Cap
 
NFL overall cap will be roughly $142M, the same number as 2011. The salary portion will be $120.6M, the rest are player benefits.

New Orleans Saints are an estimated $7-8 million under the cap.

In 2011 teams could "borrow" $2 million from future caps, in 2012, they can borrow $1.5 million.

What about the transfer of the unused cap from 2011 to the 2012 cap? I mean I thought that was included in the new CBA?

I mean, I know that teams have to submit an application for it to the league before the last game of the season, but I was wondering if there is any info about which teams did so, and for what figures?

We have a 4 million credit, so our cap number is actually 124 million.

We started roughly in the mid 90's (excluding Brees' option), so we do have some money to play with.

5.2 million currently according to NBC Sports. The numbers I posted were from NOLA.com originally.

Does that include all the restructuring we did the last several days?

Link?

It does.

Team-by-team cap space, as of March 11 | ProFootballTalk

I'm not sure if they're holding the franchise tag number accounted for or not. I'd assume no, since Brees hasn't officially signed it yet.

FinSaint 03-12-2012 12:23 PM

Does that include the $4M carry over from last season's cap, which Danno brought to our attention?
