PFT: Browns have 4th most cap space available

Pro Football Talk does a good job of keeping tabs on how much salary cap space each team has available throughout the off-season. According to their latest information as of June 22nd, the Browns have the fourth most cap space available.

Jaguars: $25.1 million.

Titans: $19.97 million.

Eagles: $18.02 million.

Browns: $17.7 million.

Bengals: $16.58 million.

Chiefs: $16.54 million.

Buccaneers: $15.74 million.

Colts: $14.59 million.

Packers: $11.25 million.

Patriots: $10.93 million.

Most recently Mike Holmgren intimated that the Browns made offers to more than one receiver in free agency, but were outbid. Presumably those two receivers were Josh Morgan and Pierre Garcon, both signed by the Washington Redskins.

Regardless, the Browns have plenty of money if any desirable players get cut during training camp this season. And while it doesn’t appear like Percy Harvin is leaving Minnesota in trade, if another player becomes available in the trade market who is looking for a richer deal, the Browns should have the capability to entertain the option.

Also, as pointed out to me on Twitter, this doesn’t include the deals that we know will be coming for Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden, not to mention any other players who get locked up long term.

    It’s crazy how similar the Browns and Cavs are at this point. Obviously different sports, but they are both building through the draft and have a lot of extra money to spend. Yet, neither team will touch a decent free agent with a 10-foot pole. I don’t mind it if they can show this strategy works, but so far both teams are still in the dumpster.

    This was a very informative post about the Browns salary cap situation. I appreciate being informed about where the Browns stand and now have a better understanding of their salary options going forward. I have no opinion that in anyway could be construed as being in opposition to the writer of this piece and would thank the author for his informative piece and hope he does not delete this message due to a misunderstanding as to how appreciative I am for this information regarding the Browns salary cap situation.

    I bet they really don’t like you

    Does this mean Holmgren can extend his tab at half price books?

    What would the Browns have to trade for Percy Harvin? Also, the Vikings would never get another free agent again if they traded Harvin, who publicly hates Childress, to the Browns (you can’t screw with the talent like that). I am all for getting great players but why bring up someone who has no actual baring on this article. Otherwise great to know we have a chance at getting some players should the opportunity arise.

    Hate to say it but $17.7 or $107M what’s the difference? It’s not like any all-pro WRs or for that matter any all-pro whatever positions will be available now. Let Randy save it.

    I cant believe Philly has $18 million. I thought they signed every overpriced free-agent last year.
