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 December 12, 2010 9:30 PM EDT

According to my figures the Patriots' 2010 cap figure is for $132,432,080 with 63 signed or tendered players (53 active and 11 Injured Reserve) and a 8-man practice squad. I think that my numbers are off by about $2.5 million and that the Patriots' true salary cap number is in the $135 million range. There is no cap limit for the 2010 season. You can follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/patscap
DISCLAIMERS - My numbers are a snapshot in time. Things will change between the as of date and a future date.

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 February 27, 2010. I presume that the Patriots will pick up the player's option bonus.
Please note that for some players not all of the listed numbers will add up to their reported cap number.
