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.

NFL's Racist Past Has a Part in the Jones Versus Fields Debate

It's time to address the elephant in the room. Racism has helped Mac Jones' stock and hurt Justin Fields' in the lead-up to the draft. Yes, it really is happening. Now before you freak out, take a breath, and keep reading because I don't mean what you likely think I mean. No, I don't think draft pundits are sitting at their keyboards and purposefully finding reasons to knock Fields while talking up Jones simply because of the color of their skin. That would be what I would call blatant racism or conscious racism, if you will. Racism has more nuance than that. There is such a thing as unconscious racism and every single person in this country has acted on it at one point or another without realizing it. How? Why? Because racism has purposefully been



NFL exec on 49ers: "I just don't buy Kyle Shanahan moving up all the way to three for Mac Jones"

Mike Sando of The Athletic has been doing his rounds around the league, asking about the San Francisco 49ers trading up to the No. 3 overall pick to select a quarterback. Even with the top two picks considered a lock—Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Zach Wilson to the New York Jets—no one is really certain about the 49ers' plan. There is speculation—a lot of it. Because of his history with quarterbacks like Kirk Cousins and Matt Ryan, many feel San Francisco traded up for Mac Jones of Alabama. Two NFL executives who spoke to Sando can see that happening. Whether or not they agree with the potential selection is another story. "I've heard they are really seriously thinking of Mac Jones and it would blow my mind,"



Former NFL QB explains why criticisms of Justin Fields, potential 49ers draft pick, are 'bogus'

No one is questioning Justin Fields' athleticism. Some question the former Ohio State quarterback's ability to transition from the college game to the pros quickly. Mark Sanchez recently joined The Pat McAfee Show and explained why Fields' ability to learn an NFL playbook might not take as long as some might be anticipating. Maybe all of his skeptics, who want to find ways to bring the quarterback down, are wrong. "For Justin, this guy, Dr. Goldman, he's a sports psychologist; I talked to him yesterday," Sanchez said (h/t to Jordan Cohn of 95.7 The Game). "He has some interesting
