If the salary cap is indeed set at $208.2 million for the 2022 season, it would mark a jump of $25.7 million.

That’s a lot of cheddar. It has been expected throughout this offseason that the salary cap would be increasing going into next season — a sentiment that already left its imprint on free agency. Free agents, such as Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster, returned to their teams on one-year deals, setting themselves up to hit free agency again next offseason when teams around the league will have more financial freedom.


If the number does come in at $208.2 million, there are a few teams currently projected for massive amounts of cap space. According to Spotrac, the teams with the most cap space for 2022 would be:

1. Indianapolis Colts: $81.07 million

2. Pittsburgh Steelers: $76.85 million

3. New York Jets: $67.88 million

4. Miami Dolphins: $63.74 million

5. Washington Football Team: $60.75 million

Some teams are going to have an incredible amount of money to spend to improve their team, which should create a wild free agency frenzy. And we are here for it.
