Bengals' top salary-cap numbers
By Jamison Hensley
No team has more salary-cap room than the Bengals' estimated $55 million. One reason is their relatively low cap numbers.
The Bengals' highest cap number belongs to cornerback Leon Hall ($8.4 million), one of four players who are over $5 million. In comparison, the Steelers have eight players over $5 million and five players over Hall's cap number.
Here are the top 10 salary-cap numbers on the Bengals:
1. Leon Hall, CB, $8.4 million
2. Andrew Whitworth, OT, $6.75 million
3. A.J. Green, WR, $5.36 million
4. Domata Peko, DT, $5.1 million
5. Reggie Nelson, S, $4.12 million
6. Jason Allen, CB, $3.7 million
7. Travelle Wharton, OL, $3.37 million
8. Kyle Cook, C, $3.34 million
9. BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, $3.25 milllion
10. Jamaal Anderson, DL, $2.7 million
