The low cap number is not bothering the big spenders

Even though some teams in the league are struggling to find cap space, others have a bounty of riches to spend with the crazy amount of cap space they have. Teams like the New England Patriots, Washington Football team, and Indianapolis Colts all have a large amount of money they can spend. It is no sure-fire bet that these teams will use that money on expensive free agents or not but some of these franchises have already made a lot of moves.

Teams with the cap space to make acquisitions have used that money to bring in impact players onto their rosters. One of those teams being the Tennessee Titans who signed Bud Dupree to a five-year $82.5 million deal late Monday night. It is a massive contract that saw the former Steelers pass rusher join a defense that needs his efforts significantly.

Teams in the NFL are always looking to improve and signing free agents when the money checks out will always be a big part of the team-building process. Those with money to spend have been loading up the trucks for these free agents and that has been a welcomed sight after a tough year financially for sports leagues across the world.
