Jaguars still have $57 million in cap room, per the NFLPA

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been one of the most active teams in the 2017 NFL free agency period, which shouldn't come as a surprise as the team had a lot of cap room. Not only did the team have a lot of cap room, but with a new coaching staff and Tom Coughlin on three year contracts, the pressure is on to win and the team needed to add more talent.

Even with the signings the team has made, the Jaguars still have $57 million in cap room, according to the most recent public NFLPA report. Now, that number is only as accurate as the latest contract processed by the NFLPA, but for the Jaguars it should be relatively accurate as of Monday, March 13th.

Fortunately for the Jaguars, they could shell out some big money contracts without concern for their future cap because their cap situation was so healthy. Unfortunately for the Jaguars it was so healthy because the team didn't really have any draft picks worth re-signing, as evidenced by the lack of players left from their 2013 NFL Draft class.

As I've explained over and over about the Jaguars salary cap situation; don't worry about it.
