Getting Draft Ready: Salary Cap, 2008

We received an email from our friends in the Yahoo! amateur capologists interest group, AmCapNFL, alerting us to information posted in the message boards at KFFL.com by one "AdamJT13." The information provided purports to show 2008 salary commitments for each NFL team, at this point. We can make no claims as to the accuracy of the data listed below, but we offer it up with the knowledge that each day we can post something is another day closer to training camp.

Additionally, according to one trusted individual the 2008 salary cap will be approximately $116,000,000.

Indianapolis$121,640,000-$5,640,000
Washington$139,900,000-$23,900,000

If the cap figure for 2008 is even close to $116,000,000 then Indianapolis and Washington are going to have some serious work (e.g. re-negotiating) to do.

As for the Steelers, if the team and Ben Roethlisberger come to some sort of agreement on a contract extension, then the team's cap figure would improve even more.
