Reassessing Every NFL Team's Salary-Cap Situation After OTAs
ed andrieski/Associated Press

Prior to the start of the league's new year on March 11, we provided you with a salary-cap primer for every NFL team, and now that we're through OTAs, it's time to reassess all 32 situations.

Free agency and the draft are in the books, and for the most part, each team's roster is set. There will be surprise releases and potential trades, but the cap situations should stay consistent from now through the end of the season.

One noteworthy trend is that franchises with more cap space generally don't have a gargantuan sum of money tied up in the starting quarterback, allowing for greater financial flexibility (yes, we see you nodding, Seattle Seahawks fans). However, many of those teams will soon have to pay their franchise passers, meaning the number will soon shrivel up.

It's almost July. Training camps are nearly at hand. The business season will soon draw to a conclusion, and the football season will triumphantly take its place. Soon, the only numbers that matter will be wins and losses, not signing bonuses and cap hits.

But it's important to remember that the salary cap dictates the types of transactions your favorite team can and cannot make. A rudimentary knowledge of each club's cap condition will allow for a greater understanding of its future plans and thought process moving forward.

With that in mind, let's reassess every NFL team's salary-cap situation after OTAs.
