Miguel's VERY UNOFFICIAL Patriots Salary Cap Information Page

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

I would like to thank Pats39, Peachhead, Jim S, Chris Matthews "CJ", Ian Logue, Andrew Brecher, Jocelyn Robichaud, Naren99, Ickster, dscotts, Ralmat55, PatsFanKen, Urgent, Hurricane1, Norman Trudel, the Homers, Ed Bryant, David Tremblay, Steve Haggett, JDSal45, Paul Dalrymple, DaBruinz, Patriots569, MoLewisRocks, PromisedLand, David Gallagher, Deus Irae and persons who ask to remain nameless. Each of them have in their own way provided invaluable assistance and guidance. Please note that NONE of them are responsible for errors on this page.

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 June 9, 2017 6:30 AM EDT

According to my figures the Patriots' 2017 cap commitment is for $150,289,709
with 91 (90 active and 1 on IR) and some dead money).

I like to credit Brian McFarland @RavensSalaryCap for coming up with the idea of the below table.

2017 New England Patriots Salary Cap Status (as of 6/9/2017)
2017 League Salary Cap$167,000,000
2016 Cap Space Carryover$5,292,335
Adjustments:(-$4,731,847)
Patriots Adjusted Cap:$167,560,488
TOTAL Players Signed/Tendered (91)$150,289,709
RULE OF 51 - UNDER SALARY CAP:$17,270,779

My Patriots cap space number of $17,270,779 does not match the NFLPA's number of $20,047,755 since the site has not been updated since the middle of May so it has not accounted for the several Patriots transactions made since then.

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 9, 2017.
Please note that you can sort on the Salary, Signing Bonus, LTBE, Roster Bonus, Workout Bonus, Total Cap Figure and Cash Spending columns.

A call for a donation

A long-time family friend, my youngest sister's best friend, is on the board of directors of a soup kitchen and food pantry in Malden, Massachusetts that provided in 2015 the equivalent of 1,030,000 meals to hungry, homeless and isolated people. I am asking that if you have found my salary cap pages useful that if you are able to do so, please make a donation to the Bread of Life soup kitchen/food pantry.
