Updating 2021 NFL salary cap cuts by team and position

NFL 2021 salary cap casualties

With the NFL salary cap dropping to $182.5 million this season as owners try to recoup lost revenue, teams find themselves having to cut quality players. The salary cap was $198.2 million this past season, and many teams agreed to contracts years ago predicting that it would rise well over $200 million in 2021. Instead, front offices are in a mad scramble to shave down their rosters.

I’ll keep the cut tracker updated as new information comes out.
