Salary Cap Update: Cleveland Browns Have $23.95 Million Available

New, comments

The last time we talked about the Cleveland Browns' salary cap, they had $30.4 million available to spend. Thanks to Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, we have thorough salary cap numbers for all 32 NFL teams.

The Browns currently have the 7th highest amount of salary cap space at $23.95 million. What has changed since the last time the salary cap figures were released? Well, the lockout ended, which allowed the team to sign their draft picks (such as Phil Taylor). Cleveland really didn't add any other veterans after the original salary cap numbers were released. In fact, they probably took under a million off the books with the retirement of offensive guard Billy Yates.

Full Numbers for Cleveland Browns

Adjusted Salary Cap: $120,610,750.00
Total Salary Used: $96,659,589.00
Available Cap Space: $23,951,161.00

Teams do not have to spend at least 89% of their cap until the 2013 season. The "99% overall" salary cap rule still seems a little fishy to me though, so we'll see if anything comes of that.

The Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lead the NFL with the most space available. The St. Louis Rams are the only team currently over the cap.
