Bucs won’t be plagued by cap casualties in 2016


Plenty of money should be available in order to re-sign our top players, which is a good sign that there will be plenty of money for Doug Martin. Bucs have already honored V-Jax’s contract, and it’s likely that Alterraun Verner will also remain a Buc. With the NFL raising the cap, this will allow Tampa to make the necessary moves, taking this team one step closer to becoming the team it should be.

“The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have quite a lot of cap space. They’re set to spend nearly $113 million on their top 51 players, which is what counts during the offseason. It’s not clear how high the 2016 NFL salary cap will be, but it was at $150 million last year and should be higher this year. That means they’ll have at least $37 million in cap space, before re-signing anyone — and it’s likely to be closer to $50 million.” – Reported by Sander Philipse
