Salary Cap Carryovers have been announced for all 32 teams

The amount of unused salary cap space to be carried over for each team in 2016 has been announced, and the Jacksonville Jaguars will have a lot of money to play with.

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement teams are required to spend an average of 89 percent of the salary cap from 2013 to 2016. League-wide, teams must spend an average of 95 percent of the salary cap over the four-year period.

Under the terms of the current collective bargaining agreement between the league and players, teams have the option to carry over all or part of their unused cap space from the previous year. The 2016 cap space each team has to work with will vary based upon the amount of unused cap space carried over.

Reports have projected the 2016 NFL Salary cap at at least $155 million but that is just part of the overall picture. The league cap figure sets the basis for each team’s cap, but the exact number for each team cap will vary.
