Patriots Have $16.8M In Salary-Cap Room Before Darrelle Revis Contract

Bill BelichickThe New England Patriots have plenty of money to spend in free agency.

The Patriots have $16,889,036 in salary-cap room, according to NFL Players Association records. That figure doesn’t account for cornerback Darrelle Revis’ contract, since it hasn’t been announced yet.

Revis’ 2014 cap hit is expected to be $7 million, which will bring the Patriots’ space down to $9,889,036. If defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is released, the Patriots’ cap room would be back up to $17,469,036.

The Patriots likely will save around $5 million to spend in the NFL draft. They will also try to save cap room in 2014 to carry into 2015.
