Chargers Projected Cap Space in Comparison to Rest of NFL

The San Diego Chargers are not in the best spot in terms of salary cap. The team doesn’t have any room going into next season and we are in one of the worst spots in comparison to the rest of the league.

The Chargers are already going to start the year over the cap, even with a few players becoming free agents. The team will have to make some moves in order to get under the cap and do some work in free agency. Tom Telesco will have to work his magic again. A.J. Smith had left us in a bad spot with the wasted money on this roster.

Telesco will have to cut some fat and also re-word some deals in order to put out a solid squad next season. The NFL draft and undrafted free agents will be big for us again this season.

Here is the projected cap outlook for the rest of the league:
