Miguel's VERY UNOFFICIAL Patriots Salary Cap Information Page

The Internet's 1st Salary Cap Page That is Devoted to One Team

DISCLAIMER:

Welcome to the first website that was focused on covering a NFL team's salary cap.

Please note that Paul Katcher of Time Magazine called this page "by far the weirdest site I came across while researching this guide" in his listing of Essential bookmarks for the true football fan. and that on Page 4 of the September 3, 2001 issue of Time Magazine this page is referred to as "informed analysis of the Patriots' salary-cap problems."

DraftDaddy.Com labeled this page as "perhaps the most complete single team salary cap page on the web".
SportsRetort.Com labels this page as "an amazing resource; ideally, every team would have such a page devoted to it."
Bill Barnwell in a guest column on FootballOutsiders.Com called this page "excellent".
The Boston Globe's Mike Reiss opined this in of his mailbags - "As for the best source for the most complete and accurate salary cap and contract information, I recommend patscap.com. It is put together by a devoted Patriots fan named Miguel. While he acknowledges the numbers aren't 100 percent accurate because they are culled together from various published reports, he is very detailed and the site is unlike any other I've seen."

According to my figures the Patriots' 2014 current commitment is for $103,031,885 with 53 players signed. I have the Patriots' 2014 dead money as $17,898,624. The Patriots have 9 players on Injured Reserve. Their cap total is $11,966,305. Maintaining the ten-man practice squad has cost $1,214,600. $17,898,624 + $103,031,885 + $11,966,305 + $1,214,600 = $134,111,414. The NFLPA site has the Patriots with $133,899,579 in total cap commitments. My numbers are therefore off by $211,835.

Please note that by clicking on the player's name you will be brought to the supporting documentation for his cap figure.The cap savings column is a net savings after the rule of 51 is applied. When a player in the Top 51 is cut, his spot is taken up by another player. Example - player has a 2014 cap hit of $1,000,000 which is all salary. He is released. A player with a $495,000 salary takes his place. Net savings - $505,000. The Rule of 51 also works when a player is added to the roster. Example - Patriots sign a UFA who has a 2014 cap cap of $2,000,000. His net cap cost to the Patriots is $1,505,000 as he will displace a player with a $495,000 salary from the Top 51 list.

Please read the player's documentation if you have any questions. When I don't know the date when a roster bonus is due I presume it to have been due on March 12, 2014.
