Giants get significant salary cap relief for 2019

Giants will have aprroximately $33-38 million in cap room next year

The NFL announced on on Tuesday that the salary cap is expected to rise again in 2019. This time the leap could be anywhere between $10 million and $15 million per team. The current salary cap, set at the beginning of the league year in March, was $177.2 million.

“The NFL informed clubs today that the projections for the 2019 salary cap are in the range of $187.0 million to $191.1 million,” the league said in a statement. “This marks a 40% increase in just five years since the 2014 season ($133.0 million) and would be the 6th consecutive year the cap is projected to climb more than $10 million per club year over year. Total projected player costs, including benefits, will be more than $7.3 billion in 2019.”

For the New York Football Giants, like most teams, this is especially good news. They will already be carrying a little over $8 million in cap space into 2019.

According to Spotrac.com, the Giants will be working with a minimum of $195 million in cap allowance with a total cap of $162 million. That leaves approximately $33 million in cap space to sign free agents with.
