Buffalo Bills salary cap room update

How much space do the Bills have left?

The Buffalo Bills lost a handful of free agents this year yet signed many free agents to help fill out their 2017 roster.

We’re now into like the 90th wave of free agency, and NFL news has someway, somehow slowed a turtle’s pace. Essentially, this is the calm before the mighty NFL draft storm.

And it’s a good time for a refresher article with some convenient links to other Bills’ housekeeping pieces.

At this moment, per the NFLPA’s Public Salary Cap report, Buffalo has $12.5 million in cap space for 2017. Subtract approximately $6.4 million that’ll be needed for the incoming draft class, and the Bills have $6.1 million in available space. From 2016 to 2017, they carried over $2.8 million.

With that $6.1M, Buffalo could sign a few low-cost veterans and still have some money left to carry over to 2018. Or they very well may choose to carry all of their current cap space over.
