Browns have sixth most cap space to start season

When it comes to legal briefs, NFL contracts and salary caps, nobody is more valuable to the NFL media community than Pro Football Talk. Enough slathering. They’ve updated the numbers as of September 7th and the Browns will be facing the team with the most cap space to open the season against the Eagles. It’s amazing to realize that a team with Mike Vick, LeSean McCoy, Desean Jackson and Asomugha can lead the league in cap space. (When does Joe Banner get to Cleveland?) Meanwhile the Browns are in good shape with the 6th most space at $13.4 million available.

Eagles:  $21.4 million.

Jaguars:  $20.7 million.

Chiefs:  $14.5 million.

Titans:  $14.1 million.

Bills:  $13.6 million.

Browns:  $13.4 million.

Buccaneers:  $13.2 million.

Seahawks:  $13.2 million.

Broncos:  $12.3 million.

Bengals:  $10.4 million.

    They are in the middle of some contracts right now. They frontloaded some contracts and that part is done, and then they backloaded others and they haven’t kicked in yet. They may have cap space now, but unless they are signing someone to a 1-year contract they don’t have the room.

    Maybe we can get that LF or 3B or 1B in the offseason…oh wait this is football…oh that’s right they don’t spend money on free agents either, nevermind.
