49ers salary cap with 53-man roster set

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers set their 53-man roster over the weekend, and had to be cap compliant by 9 p.m. PT Tuesday evening. That was not difficult

The NFL requires teams be cap compliant with their Top 51 salaries throughout the offseason, but that changed the evening of Tuesday, September 7. At 9 p.m. PT, each team had to be cap compliant with their entire roster of players. That includes the 53-man roster, dead money, practice squad, suspended players, and players on the various injury lists.

The San Francisco 49ers were not going to have any issues getting cap compliant Tuesday evening. They led the NFL in cap space under the Top 51 rule, and likely will lead it with the full roster compliant.

Nonetheless, it is worth taking a look at the 49ers cap situation with their roster in its present form. There are two specific numbers for which we are still waiting. DeAndre Smelter reached an injury settlement, and we do not know his dead money hit at this point. I have included his cap hit for the time being. The 49ers also signed Tank Carradine to a 1-year extension on Tuesday. Matt Maiocco is reporting the deal includes a $1.25 million signing bonus, but we do not know the salary numbers.

Here are the specifics for each category of cap spending. Below that it is broken down by position, with pertinent salary guarantee information listed.
