Thanks....I'd like to learn a lot more about this part of team building. And the trends.

The cap is such an important factor on why teams pass on or pursue certain players.

Agreed. It's pretty interesting way to present the data and a quick, intuitive way to see how specific teams decide to disburse cash by position.

Thanks MachinaVerde.

At first glance, there are some issues with the data.  Haloti Ngata is not a prototypical DE, he's the Ravens NT/DT, but plays off the NT in their 3-4 alignment.  The report lumps him in with the DEs.

Some of the assumptions on the cap are incorrect for Patriots players. 

Here are  their links for Patriots offense and defense:

The data is a fairly decent take on what teams spend and by position, but I would caution against the margin of error for mislabelled positions for players and incorrect cap numbers (Bonus money throwing some numbers off).

Patriots cap space update

By Greg A. Bedard, Globe Staff

With some of the Patriots' new contracts coming in, we have a better idea of where the Patriots are in regards to the cap.

As best we can tell, the Patriots now have $107,858,353 paid to their top 51 players for cap purposes.

The release of Brandon Lloyd saved the team $4.5 million against the cap this year, but cost them $2 million in dead cap space. Lloyd was not designated a June 1 cut, so the dead money goes on this year to give the Patriots a total of $6,514,529.

That means the Patriots have paid out $114,372,882.

With the 2012 cap carryover, they are operating on an adjusted cap of $129,656,344.

So the total remaining is approximately $15,283,462.

However, the Patriots should be budgeting anywhere from $8-12 million to save for draft picks, incentives, and any possible extensions they would like to do before free agency next year.

So in reality, the Patriots have about $3-7 million to toy with.

The time has come..... Here's to the 2014 Season.
