FalconFanSince1969 Posted February 13 Share Posted February 13 It's pretty common knowledge that after Mariota gets cut the Falcons will be sitting with roughly 68.5 million cap space. What isn't common knowledge though is that for 2023 we already have 58 players under contract. What does this mean in relation to our cap space? Only the top 51 players count towards your salary cap. What that means is for every player we sign this off season, one player falls off the top 51 and we save that cap space. For example: We sign so and so to a 1 year, 3 million dollar contract. His 2023 cap hit is 3 million. The lowest cap charge on the roster right now is John Raine @ 750k cap hit. This means that player so and so really only costs us 2.25 mil in cap space. And this will happen every time we sign a player and the amounts will get higher. Lets say we sign 7 free agents. For each free agent signed another guy comes off. If we signed 7 free agents we would push an additional 5.5 million dollars off of the cap so we have a lot more effective cap space than meets the eye.
