The NFL’s first new salary-cap structure was enacted in 2020.
But with it came an increase in the salary cap for each team.
The cap has now grown to $163 million, up from $154 million.
Here are the five players who are the most valuable and least valuable for each club: 1.
Tanzi Tremblay, Ravens Tanzi’s contract is up through 2020, and the Ravens are paying him $14 million annually.
The Ravens have already been able to shed him for $5.2 million.
DeAndre Hopkins, Texans A team-record $7.1 million in 2018-19 cap hit makes Hopkins the most expensive quarterback in NFL history, and he’ll be paying $3.8 million in 2019 and $3 million in 2020, with a $3,822,000 base salary and $4,846,000 roster bonus.
DeMarco Murray, Eagles The Eagles will have to trim $2.8-$3 million from their $8.9 million salary cap next season, but they’ll be able to spend $3-$4 million on the wideout.
Murray’s deal is up in 2019, so it’ll be hard for the Eagles to reduce his cap hit this offseason.
Andre Johnson, Bengals Johnson’s deal with the Bengals is up next year at $12 million, with $5 million of that coming from the $12.5 million salary-diligence payment, $3 from each of his 2019 and 2020 incentives, and $2,250,000 in signing bonuses.
A.J. Green, Steelers Green’s $14.1M base salary from 2019-20 will be a big loss for the Steelers, who will have $13.8M on their salary cap in 2020 and $14M in 2021.
