We have compiled the 2012 NFL salaries by team by taking the 2012 NFL salary cap of $120.6 Million minus the salary cap space of each NFL team. Our source for this data is Team-by-team cap space as of September 3 by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
We have also added each team’s year over year change from the 2011 NFL Payrolls by Team. This is the last year that salary data will be particularly interesting to keep an eye on because a salary floor will be introduced next season. This will require all teams to spend very close to the same amount each season.
