Everything Isn’t What It Seems
1. Houston Texans: $49.26 million
2. New York Jets: $45.01 million
3. Cleveland Browns: $43.70 million
4. Los Angeles Chargers: $37.55 million
5. Tennessee Titans: $32.56 million
The Texans may have the most cap space in the NFL, but that’s after trading DeAndre Hopkins’ $12.5 million cap hit for 2020. It’s also worth mentioning that left tackle Laremy Tunsil is entering the final year of his rookie deal. Remember, the Texans parted with two first-round picks and a second-round pick to obtain Tunsil, so they have a vested interest in retaining him long-term. Tunsil, of course, protects the blindside of Deshaun Watson, who is entering his fourth season in the NFL and will soon need a long-term deal of his own.
