Got an email from a digital agency guy called Matt Zajechowski, who created a graphic on the Bears salary cap with Olivet Nazarene University. Usually I ignore these emails. This one I kind of found cool. And I’m not even remotely a salary cap guy.
Here’s the description:
In 2015, the Chicago Bears are projected to have a salary cap of $144,606,834, with total liabilities (or guaranteed money) of $136,298,355. For those of you doing the math (as most Bears fans are), that leaves exactly $8,309,479 in cap space. So how do Da Bears fare against the salary cap, both as players and as position groups?
The graphic breaks down the cap for the Bears position-by-position. It is the largest image I’ve ever posted so it’s coming after the jump sop as not to ruin this site on mobile devices. Enjoy.
