Following Dunlap extension, Bengals have $15.5 million under the cap

John Grieshop

The Cincinnati Bengals currently rank seventh in the NFL with $15.5 million available under the cap.

Writing a posting on July 14 that discussed possible salary cap casualties, the Cincinnati Bengals ranked fourth in the NFL with nearly $22 million available under the 2013 salary cap. It was an innocent reference to a cap number that didn't dictate roster cuts just to save money.

Then Carlos Dunlap signed a five-year extension (six years total) that was worth $40 million. Per Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer, the deal likely carries nearly $18 million in guaranteed money, a 2014 roster bonus of $17.4 million, a $3.7 million reporting bonus (earned next week), a 2014 roster bonus of $5.7 million and a signing bonus of $8 million.

When you factor everything together, Dunlap carries a cap number of $6.907 million in 2013. As you can imagine, the Bengals cap number shifts dramatically. According the NFLPA salary cap report, the Cincinnati Bengals have $15,548,690 available under the cap, which currently ranks seventh.
