Added Redskins...another team that should be a better overall team due to the fact that they don't have to spend premium money at QB.

Also props the Broncos for finding probably 40 million dollars worth of receiving talent and having most of it on rookie contracts.

'Part' of it? That's the entire thing. A higher number in the QB slot for New York does not mean that they are spending more on QB, only that a greater percentage of their total cap is devoted to that position.

See how New York's total cap number is lower than Denver's? Think about it.

Maybe I'm reading these charts wrong but I'm pretty sure that is covered under 'space'. Everyone has the same cap. Most likely it has to do with how the respective contracts are structured more than anything.

I'm talking about the giant 'TOTAL CAP SPEND' number to the bottom right of each chart.

This is the most basic of the maths, people.

QB includes more than just the starter - they have Painter, who is not on a rookie contract and we have Osweiler on his rookie contract for 2nd QBs, and they have a 4th round rookie, we have Dysert for 3rd QBs. Also, I think this includes prorated portion of bonus paid to Eli (I don't remember the details of Peyton's contract offhand, but I thought it was basically salary every year and not much on the signing bonus)

Quick breakdown of the math:

Us 13.35% of 132M is $17.6M
Them 17.75% of 122M is $21.6M

Yeah a lot of these teams have QBs on rookie salaries. It will be interesting when they have to pay these people. There will be a huge bump in salary cap either this year or next so that will help them.
