The 2019 salary cap will be $188.2 million

The 2019 league year starts in less than two weeks and teams now know the exact salary cap figure they’ll be working with in free agency.

The NFL has officially set this year’s cap at $188.2 millions, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. The league had projected a cap figure “in the range of $187.0 million to $191.1 million” late last year.



In 2018, NFL teams had $177.2 million at their disposal and this is the sixth straight year that the cap number has risen by at least $10 million. In all, the cap has risen over $68 million since it was set at $120 million for the 2011 season.

That flood of money has made for a flurry of deals in the early hours of free agency in recent years and Friday’s word of another big jump should lead to the same come March 13.

They only have 22 mil available. Resigning some of the high priced window dressing will take a lot of that.

We have 9.1 available and with a few moves could keep everyone even Ingram. We could shore up DT, TE and QB in the draft. You know coach is going to trade up again, so say good bye to next years #1. I say it's either trade up for DT, QB or TE.

With one second round pick in the first 62 picks, and then no picks till 168th pick? Saints fans better temper their expectations...

Round 1: None (Traded/Marcus Davenport)
Round 2: New Orleans
Round 3: None (Traded/Teddy Bridgewater)
Round 4: None (Traded/Eli Apple)
Round 5: New Orleans
Round 6: N.Y. Jets pick (Teddy Bridgewater), New Orleans
Round 7: Cleveland pick (Devaroe Lawrence), New Orleans

We're drafting reserve defensive and offensive line depth, maybe some DB reserves for special teams...

This is all true.

If any team has the cap space to load up for a run, it's the Colts. They could do it and they have the luxury of an improved defense and a decent o-line. I look for them to be a potential dark horse candidate in the AFC. They could be a 12-4 type team next year.

Superbowl Winning Teams, Namely the Patriots, and the others that have won in this era have done it more through the draft than Free Agency...

+1.

Have you noticed how few guys are in their draft war room ? Meanwhile every year it seems like the Texans, Buffalo or Jacksonville have like 15 guys in the room .

It is a testament to the ability of Belichick the way he can develop a roster. They build a team and not just collect talent. He never falls in love with a player but the value they bring.

Love em or hate em, I have a lot of respect the way that organization can assemble Championship winning teams over the last decade. I've never seen a coach who can take non stars and make them prime time.

He's a Yoda.

We gotta let Peat go. We can’t be paying both guards $8+ mil. Take the above mentioned Patriots method and let the FA walk while we plug in someone else.

Agreed. I like Peat, and consider him an underrated, miscast player (a theme in Payton's tenure); but Warford was a terrible consolation signing and it's gonna cost us again with Peat...

Playing next to Armstead, Peat has had to prepare to play two positions for most of the last three years which is as much a testament to his ability as his toughness in playing hurt, unlike Mr. Glass...

Drafting those Pac12 players and their quarters schedule system continues to appear to be problematic for many players transitioning to the NFL...

In Peat's selection, it was more a failure of Payton/Mickster failing to move out of that spot (up or down) and taking good value at the right spot to fill the right need...

As nervous as it'd make Brees, I'd move everyone but Unger & Ramczyk (except to LT), and get this line younger, leaner, meaner, keeping the wily veteran Unger to bring them along...

Will we ever learn? Never let it come down to the officiating...
