Buffalo Bills Salary Cap: $18.5 Million After Leodis McKelvin Contract

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

With free agency set to begin in mere hours, the Buffalo Bills have $18.5 million in cap space to play with, according to The Buffalo News.

If you were wondering how much the new contract signed by Leodis McKelvin on Monday took away from the Buffalo Bills' salary cap figure entering free agency, The Buffalo News has your answer - not an awful lot.

According to figures provided by Mark Gaughan, the Bills have $18.5 million in cap space for when free agency begins later this afternoon. That's down from around $21 million prior to the McKelvin contract, meaning that even though the reported figures for McKelvin's deal averaged $5 million per season, he's only worth half of that against the cap in 2013.

The Bills enter free agency with the tenth-highest amount of cap space in the NFL, though their $18.5 million figure is dwarfed by some of the league's expected bigger spenders, such as the Cleveland Browns ($47 million), the Cincinnati Bengals ($42.9 million), the Indianapolis Colts ($37 million), the Philadelphia Eagles ($34 million), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($32 million) and the Miami Dolphins ($31 million).

Unrestricted free agency is set to begin 2.5 hours from the time this article published (4PM ET). Buffalo Rumblings will have you covered for the remainder of the evening. Buckle up.
