Chargers carry over $2.29M of unused cap space

The Chargers should have a healthy amount of cap space for the 2016 season.

NFL salary cap carryover amounts were announced Thursday, with the Chargers carrying over about $2.29 million from the previous year.

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each NFL franchise has the option to carry over unused cap space. Every team elected to do so, with the amounts ranging from $11,587 (Seattle Seahawks) to $32,774,928 (Jacksonville Jaguars).

It’s expected that the Chargers will have at least $30 million to work with for the 2016 season, which projects to be a healthy number for general manager Tom Telesco -- and he'll need it. In addition to re-signing free agents like tight end Antonio Gates and others, Telesco has a number of roster holes to address through draft and free agency.

The NFL will announce the 2016 salary cap in the coming weeks.
