Salary cap snapshot

One of our favorites is a group of amateur capologists at Yahoo! (free account required) who attempt to decipher the mysterious world of the NFL salary cap just for the love of doing so. The moderator(s) of that group have come across a look at the current salary cap situation for the 2009 season.

According to those calculations the Steelers are currently $19,000,000 under the cap.

Some members of the Yahoo! group are dubious about the numbers ~ e.g. they do not include cap credits, and will change quickly once the free agency period begins ~ but the calculations appear to be a solid look at how things are now.

For those, like us, who wish Super Bowl Sunday was already here, please enjoy!
