Guaranteed Futures for NFL Teams
Untitled Document

The following table illustrates the guaranteed salary/bonus breakdown looking ahead to 2017 for each NFL team. The "Already Guaranteed" column denotes salary that is already fully guaranteed right now. "Guarantees Early 2017" shows salary or bonus that will become fully guaranteed in the waiver period or early in the 2017 league year. The "Total Likely G'Tees" are simply the sum of the previous two columns. The Total Cap $ shows all dollars currently allocated to the 2017 salary cap, including dead money.

Notable Notes

  • If you're a Bengals fan, disregard this article - as they carry no potential guarantees for the 2017 season currently.
  • 56% of the Broncos 2017 current cap dollars have the potential to be guaranteed by Early 2017.
  • The Ravens have the 3rd most cap dollars allocated to 2017 - but just 8.75% of which is potentially guaranteed.
  • All of the Texans' guarantees are full, with no remaining to start the 2017 league year.
