Chiefs have about $7.3 million of cap room

3/14/2014

After this week's signings of linebacker Joe Mays, offensive lineman Jeff Linkenbach and safety Husain Abdullah, the Kansas City Chiefs still have about $7.3 million of room remaining under the NFL's salary cap.

Mays has a salary-cap figure of $2 million. Linkenbach's number is $900,000 and Abdullah's is $755,000.

The Chiefs have $124,568,918 in salary-cap commitments for their 51 highest-paid players. Only the top 51 players count against the cap at this time of the year. They also have $3,505,823 in dead money, so called because it represents their salary-cap commitments to players no longer with the team.

Their salary cap is at $135,381,518, a figure that includes $2,381,518 in rollover from last year's cap. That's the portion of last year's cap that the Chiefs didn't use.

The difference is $7,306,777.
