San Francisco 49ers to Carry over Fifth-most Salary-cap Space in 2016

The San Francisco 49ers will carry over $12,206,686 worth of unused salary-cap space into 2016, the NFLPA announced on Thursday.

Only the Jacksonville Jaguars ($32.77 million), Tennessee Titans ($20.78 million), Cleveland Browns ($20.73 million) and Oakland Raiders ($13.37 million) will rollover a larger sum than the 49ers.

Thanks in part to that money, San Francisco is expected to have substantial salary-cap room this year. According to, the 49ers are projected to be roughly $50 million under the cap, which the NFL and NFLPA will likely announce the official number within the next week or so.

Earlier this week, the 49ers inked tight end Garrett Celek and defensive lineman Quinton Dial to multi-year contract extensions. Those contracts figures have not been released.
