NFL salary cap for 2016 set at $155.27 million

Feb 26, 2016 at 5:32 PM--


The NFL and NFLPA have finalized a 2016 salary cap of a $155.27 million per team, according to Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY.


That's a rise of nearly $12 million from last year's $143.28 million cap number. According to Jason Fitzgerald of Over the Cap, that number should mean that every NFL team is already under the cap.

Over the Cap also reports that the new number gives the San Francisco 49ers nearly $55.6 million in cap space for 2016. Although, that number is not official until the NFLPA posts an updated salary cap report. Spotrac.com reports the 49ers' cap space at $55.2 million. Both sites list San Francisco with the sixth highest amount of cap room in the NFL.

The San Francisco 49ers' rookie minicamp kicked off Friday afternoon, with the 49ers revealing the rookie jersey numbers prior to media availability. Sixth-round selection Nick Zakelj, who will wear No. 63, spoke with the media on Friday for the first time since draft night and shared a rather interesting fact about his football childhood. Zakelj is a Cleveland native, drawing a connection to Alex Mack, whom the rookie watched while growing up. Mack began his career as a member of the Cleveland Browns, playing from 2009-2015 before stints with the Falcons and the 49ers. "I think definitely watching guys like Alex, especially growing up in Cleveland, being drafted, I

Ryan Harris, a former offensive lineman turned broadcaster and analyst, joined CBS Sports HQ to discuss the young quarterbacks of the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears. He was asked which passer—Trey Lance or Justin Fields—finds himself in the best situation. Harris' answer? Lance, who is on a roster coming off an NFC title game appearance.
