Miguel's VERY UNOFFICIAL Patriots Salary Cap Information Page

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

According to my figures the Patriots' 2013 cap figure is for $82,908,181 with 68 (53 active, 13 on Injured Reserve, 2 on Non-Football Injury) players and a 8-man practice squad. I am now counting everyone (all 53 players on the 53-man roster, Injured Reserve players, and the 8-man practice squad). The cap limit for the 2013 season is $123 million. The Patriots' adjusted cap number is $129,656,344. I have the Patriots' 2013 dead money as $15,334,100. I have 12 players on injured reserve. Their cap numbers total $27,337,498. $27,337,498 + $82,908,181 + $15,334,100 = $125,579,778. Therefore, I have the Patriots under their adjusted cap limit by about $4.02 million. According to the NFLPA's public salary cap report the Pats are under their adjusted cap by $4,024,801 so my numbers are right where they should be. I suspect that part of the difference is that I am probably overestimating the amount the Pats spent on injury settlements. The Patriots may have reached injury settlements with 3 players. Since I do not have access to the actual amount I am going to use 3 weeks salary as the average injury settlement amount. A second reason for my overestimate is that my numbers presume that 78 players completed all of their offseason workouts. Another reason is that some players may have LTBE incentives that have not been reported.

According to my figures the Patriots' 2013 cap figure is for $82,908,181 with 66 (52 active, 12 on Injured Reserve, 2 on Non-Football Injury) players and a 8-man practice squad. I am now counting everyone (all 53 players on the 53-man roster, Injured Reserve players, and the 8-man practice squad). The cap limit for the 2013 season is $123 million. The Patriots' adjusted cap number is $129,656,344. I have the Patriots' 2013 dead money as $15,334,100. I have 12 players on injured reserve. Their cap numbers total $27,337,498. $27,337,498 + $82,908,181 + $15,334,100 = $125,579,778. Therefore, I have the Patriots under their adjusted cap limit by about $4.08 million. According to the NFLPA's public salary cap report the Pats are under their adjusted cap by $4,160,574 so my numbers are off by about 94,000. I suspect that part of the difference is that I am probably overestimating the amount the Pats spent on injury settlements. The Patriots may have reached injury settlements with 3 players. Since I do not have access to the actual amount I am going to use 3 weeks salary as the average injury settlement amount.

When a player files a salary grievance, the CBA requires that 40% of the grievance amount hits the cap until the grievance is settled or until the end of the League year.

  50. So that my numbers can better match up with the NFLPA's I am now including $504,000 (80 players * 36 workouts * $175 daily compensation) in my numbers. I am doing so based on my intrepreation of this section in the CBA - "Beginning on the first day of the League Year, each Club's Team Salary will be charged an amount that is calculated as follows: multiply the minimum daily amount set forth in Article 21, Section 3 ($155 for the 2011 League Year) by 2,880 (80 players x 4 days/week x 9 weeks = 2,880) . At the conclusion of the program, this charge will be adjusted based upon the amounts actually paid to players who participated in the offseason program. At that time, the amount paid to each player will be charged to Salary and Team Salary, and the original charge set forth in the first sentence of this Subsection shall be removed from Team Salary. In addition to these amounts, any incentives in Player Contracts related to offseason workouts shall be included in Team Salary pursuant to Section 6 (c) (iii) below"

Please note that by clicking on the player's name you will be brought to the supporting documentation for his cap figure.

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, 2013. I presume that the Patriots will pick up the player's 2013 option bonus so I include the option bonus proration in the total cap amount but until March 12 I do not include the option bonus in the Remaining Signing Bonus amount. Please note that since Brady, Amendola, Chandler Jones, Hightower, Jamie Collins, Aaron Dobson, Tavon Wilson and Gronkowski have some future salaries guaranteed if they were to be released those future guaranteed salaries would hit the 2013 cap.
Please note that for some players not all of the listed numbers will add up to their reported cap number.
