For four consecutive seasons, the NFL’s salary cap has jumped by at least $10 million. It reached a new high again this March when it was set at $167 million.
But teams aren’t spending it as quickly. According to The Ringer, 13 teams had $5 million in cap space during the 2014 season while the other 19 were close to the spending limit. In 2016, 23 teams had at least $5 million in room.

If it wasn’t for the 33 interceptions Winston threw in the last two seasons, he may already be considered one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks. At 6’4, 232 pounds, Winston has a blend of size, strength, athleticism, and arm talent that made him the No. 1 pick.
At times, it has shown on the field in spectacular ways.

In November, he provided arguably the play of the NFL season by dodging nearly the entire Chicago Bears defense and narrowly avoiding a safety before heaving a pass about 50 yards downfield.
The play is everything exciting about Winston in a nutshell.
Sure, it required all of his athletic abilities to pull it off, but it happened because Winston is one of the only quarterbacks who would actually be willing to run backward 15 yards, change directions three times, and then hurl a ball up for grabs.
A report from ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez in May said the Rams were hesitant to pay Johnson until they saw he could play in new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ 3-4 scheme. Now both Johnson and the Rams head towards an uncertain future together.
