A report surfaced last week that the 2014 salary cap could reach $132 million. At the time, that number was somewhat surprising to league experts. Another report dictated the the salary cap could surpass $132 million, and "could be a 'few million' higher than $132 million."
According to Tom Pelissero with the USA TODAY, the salary cap will be between $132 million and $133 million. It could be set as soon as Friday, but "most likely by Monday."
I'm told the 2014 salary cap will be set as soon as tomorrow, most likely by Monday, and barring an unexpected audit it'll be $132M-$133M.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) February 27, 2014
According to OverTheCap.com, the Bengals Top-51 players have a cap number of $110,314,240. Spotrac has a cap number of $111,300,520. Using basic math, based on those sources, the Bengals will have well over $20 million available under the cap -- there are some reports applying an higher number, closer to $30 million.
