Bears 20th in NFL in cap space

The Chicago Bears have roughly $8 million in salary cap space heading into training camp, which is $3 million below the league average and ranks 20th in the NFL.

The Chicago Bears have 89 players on the current roster, with salaries that total more than $134 million. Heading into training camp, the club will have $8.07 million in available cap space, which is 20th most in the NFL. That is plenty of wiggle room to add players throughout the 2015 campaign, as well as any additional veterans the new regime wants to bring to Bourbonnais.
