Dead Money refers to the amount of cap space consumed by NFL players no longer on a teams roster. Doesn’t matter if they retired, got released or traded away. But for the most part the dead money should be controlled and kept under 4 to 5 million as a ceiling. ¬†Anything WAY over that, in my option, shows poor management by the team, especially if it’s year after year, like the Saints.

No surprised to see Dallas, Carolina, New Orleans and the Cardinals atop the list. But the Bills? With their record… that’s just funny.

    According to patsfans.com, http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/10/1088209-2014-pats-salary-cap-breakdown-dead-money.html#.UwYB3YX9rvN, the Dead Money, at least in the Patriots case, should be adjusted.

    “Fanene, Jonathan (1,350,000) which means that the Pats will be getting a credit for Fanene
    Lloyd, Brandon (1,500,000) which means that the Pats will be getting a credit for Lloyd

    Total – 5,683,721″

    It seems the Ray Rice recent brouhaha may present the Ravens with some new cap problems. No where as serious as the Hernandez case is for the Patriots this year, but apparently if/when Hernandez is indicted their will be a huge credit to the dead money. Unfortunately, it will not be likely in time for the 2014 season.
