With preliminary 53-man rosters now in place (for a second or two), we've developed a look at how each team is currently allocating their cap dollars positionally. The table below will update in real-time, and breaks down spending to the Offense, Defense, Quarterbacks, Running Backs, Wide Receivers, Tight Ends, Offensive Line, Defensive Line, Linebackers, Secondary, and Special Teams. The figures below represent only players on the 53-Man active roster, not those on Reserve/Injured, Suspended, PUP lists - so things will change as some of those players are reverted back to the lineup.

Leaders
At the time of first publish, the Eagles had the most 2015 cap $ allocated to offense, while the Browns led the way in terms of defensive spending. Drew Brees ungodly cap figure has the Saints leading the way in QB dollars, while Adrian Peterson has the same effect for the Vikings in terms of RBs. The Detroit Lions have the most WR cap $ allocated by more than $3M, while Julius Thomas' big pay day has the Jaguars leading the way in terms of TE spending. The most expensive OL in the league belongs to the New York Jets, by more than $4M. While the Rams are spending nearly $47M on their defensive line this year. The Colts have shored up their defense, packing in an expensive linebacking core this year, while Revis-Island makes the Jets the far and away top spendings in the secondary.
