The NFL salary cap for this offseason was different than previous years due to the economic downturn created by COVID-19. This means some teams are in less-than-stellar situations during free agency.

Other teams such as the Jacksonville Jaguars find themselves in a tremendous spot. As we continue to focus on the offseason, here’s an updated NFL salary cap tracker and a look at where each team stands.

Note: Updated figures only include free agent contracts in which details have been reported.
