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."

Last updated on August 31, 2014 1:45 PM EDT

According to my figures the Patriots' 2014 current commitment is for $108,652,398 with 58 players signed. I have the Patriots' 2014 dead money as $16,171,856. $16,171,856 + $108,652,398 = $124,824,249. My numbers do INCLUDE the cuts made on August 30th and the Mallett trade. The Patriots 2014 adjusted cap number is $139,109,051 so I have the Pats under it by $14,284,802. The NFLPA cap report has the Patriots under their adjusted cap number by $13,194,404 so our numbers differ by $1,090,398.

Please note that the salaries of signed practice squad players will not count against the salary cap until 9/4.

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.

How to Read This Table
First and foremost, 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.
All of the below players are NOT currently among the Top 51 list, therefore their salaries do NOT count against the cap at this present moment and their current cap figures only include roster bonuses(if any), prorated portion of their signing bonus, LTBE incentives, and offseason workout bonus. For example, Jonas Gray's $420,000 salary currently does not count against the 2014 cap because right now since he is not among the Top 51 highest paid players.
