John Schneider and Pete Carroll had a plethora of cap room to work with when free agency. But their cap number for 2013 shrank quickly after the Percy Harvin trade and contract extension were made official. After that move alone, Seattle's cap figure now sits at $109,135,410.
Still a far cry from the $123 million cap floor. Being $13,864,590 under the cap has its advantages, yet Harvin only carries a cap hit of $4.9 million in 2013. That number balloons to $13.4 million in 2014, according to Spotrac. Which means they will want to keep a bit of free cap space this year so they can roll it over into next year.
Let's break down the moves that have shaped Seattle's current salary cap number.
