1. Updated to include top 53 - Only the top 51 contracts are counted until the regular season. However, once the season starts ALL top 53 contracts are counted toward the salary cap, so I put it in now so we have an accurate reflection of the final cap number.
2. Updated to include Practice Squad - Final cap number includes a projected 8 man Practice Squad, which also starts being counted once the season starts. Included for final cap number accuracy.
3. The spreadsheet is the most accurate for the actual final cap number on the internet. All active salaries and dead money match both spotrac.com and overthecap.com. If you see a higher remaining final cap space number elsewhere, it does not factor in top 53, draft picks or practice squad, like this spreadsheet does.
