Jaguars Can Roll Over Cap Room

There has been concern raised by some fans with the amount of cap room that the Jacksonville Jaguars will have entering the 2012 offseason. The most recent projection showed the Jaguars with about $17 million in cap room, but as I mentioned before you shouldn't worry. Not only does this projection not include likely salary dumps, but it also didn't include this nugget from the newest CBA.

Under Article 13, Section 6(b)(v) of the CBA, each team may carry over any remaining cap room from one year to the next by submitting written notice, signed by the owner of the team, to the league office no later than 14 days before the start of the next league year. The written notice must indicate the maximum amount of cap room that the team wishes to shift from one cap year to the next.

Many have complained about the Jaguars lack of spending in 2011, entering the season and playing through it with about $30 million in cap room. As of November of 2011, the Jaguars had $32.9 million in cap room, the most of any team in the NFL. Under the new guidelines, the Jaguars can apparently choose to move all or part of that remaining cap number onto the 2012 cap.
