It’s official, the NFL salary cap will be $198.2 million per team for the 2020 season. This represents an $10 million jump from last years $188.2 million cap. The salary cap has been consistently rising $10-12 million dollars per year since 2013.

Salary Cap by year:

2020: $198.2 million

2019: $188.2 million

2018: $177.2 million

2017: $167 million

2016: $155.27 million

2015: $143.28 million

2014: $133 million

2013: $123 million

2012: $120.6 million

The Washington Redskins have a lot more money going into this season than they had last year. According to Overthecap, the Redskins have ~$61 million in cap space next year. The team already made some big cuts to free up cap space(Josh Norman, Jordan Reed, and Paul Richardson Jr.). The Redskins just placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on RG Brandon Scherff which is expected to cost them $16.1 million if he doesn’t get a new deal. The team is also trying to trade disgruntled LT Trent Williams, but his request for a new deal worth $20+ million, and the Redskins wanting a 2nd round pick in return have kept the deal from happening. Trading Williams would add another $12.5 million to this year’s cap. Now we should see some new movement with the cap set, and the new CBA approved.
