NFL salary cap expected to make big jump, Buffalo Bills still over

The Bills are still over the projected salary cap even after a huge jump in projections.

The Buffalo Bills may have a bit of a respite from the NFL's salary cap if a report from's Rand Getlin is accurate.

The Bills currently have over $158 million committed to their cap for the 2016 season. Even taking into account just the top 51 contracts (how the cap is calculated once the league year starts) they are over that projected cap and will need to shed some salary.

Earlier this offseason, we profiled a series of moves that would save the Bills $27 million. That will free up enough room to re-sign Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito as well as add free agents to plug some holes around the roster while staying under the salary cap.
