The NFL Player Association announced the salary cap for 2015 will be at $143.28 million, but teams will have even more room to spend on their players after adjustments take into consideration the amount of cap space they can carry over from unspent money in 2014.

In fact, two teams – Jacksonville and Cleveland – will have more than $160 million with their adjusted salary cap. The Jaguars lead the way with a $168,486,107 adjusted salary cap after carrying over more than $21 million in unused cap space. The Browns are at $161,767,400 after carrying over almost $19 million.

Nine more teams – the Bengals, Broncos, Packers, Colts, Dolphins, Jets, Raiders, Eagles and Titans – all have more than $150 million in adjusted salary cap.

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each club has the option to carry over unused cap space from the prior league year. Below is every team’s adjusted salary cap position for 2015, given its carryover amount and other adjustments from the 2014 season:
