NFLPA: Packers Rolling Over $7M of Unused Cap Space

While that is above the league average, only 10 teams have a larger carryover than the Packers.

INDIANAPOLIS – The Green Bay Packers took almost $7 million of unused salary-cap space in 2015 and rolled it over into their 2016 salary cap, the NFLPA announced on Thursday.

The Packers' total of $6,953,847 is slightly more than the league-wide average of $6.4 million, the players union said. The salary cap for 2016 has not been set but has been projected to be around $155 million. If that's the case, the Packers' 2016 cap would rise to almost $162 million.

The smallest carryover amount is $11,587 by the Seattle Seahawks, and the largest is $32,774,928 by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ten teams have a larger rollover than Green Bay. The Packers' rollover is more than the rest of the NFC North combined, with Detroit rolling over $862,191, Chicago $867,589 and Minnesota $2,090,409.
