NFL Sets 2014 Salary Cap at $133 Million; Browns Have $57.45 Million in Cap Space

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

At last, the 2014 salary cap is set for the NFL.

According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, the salary cap for the 2014 season has officially been set at $133 million:

After the Cleveland Browns released LB D'Qwell Jackson a few days ago, I broke down the amount of cap space the team had. I have now adjusted that post to reflect the new cap, which gives the Browns $57.45 million in cap space.

I also posted an in-depth article earlier today, explaining what the 89% minimum cash spend requirement for NFL teams, including the Browns, really means. That post has also been updated to account for the $133 million salary cap.

Based on the new cap figure, it would cost the Browns $11.654 million to use the franchise tag on C Alex Mack, and $8.433 million to use the franchise tag on SS T.J. Ward.
