2012 NFL Free Agency: Updated Salary Cap Numbers For All Florida Teams

The NFL has an interesting provision in the CBA where teams are allowed to rollover unused cap space from one season to the next, so there are plenty of teams this year that have low salary numbers that could improve their team greatly through free agency. According to SB Nation, the Jaguars and the Buccaneers have among the most cap space in the NFL.

The Jacksonville Jaguars didn't spend $31 million of cap room in 2011, so they now have $45 million of room. . . The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, thanks to $23.519 million of carryover cap money, have the second-most cap space with $60.496 million.

The Dolphins, meanwhile, should have some room to play with because they can rollover their cap room from last year to add to what they had today; and according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, they had $9.1 million as of November.
