The salary cap for the 2023 NFL league year has officially been finalized. The 2023 49ers salary cap has been announced, and they have the third-highest cap number for 2023. The 49ers salary cap and cap space are not the same, but the amount they saved will help the team. Here are details on the 49ers salary cap and why this is great news for the team.
2023 49ers Salary Cap
The league has announced the 2023 salary cap, and the 49ers officially have $237,520,268. This is the third highest in the NFL, with the Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns above them. The number comes from unused 2022 and refunds from incentives that were not earned. An example, provided by David Lombardi is Jimmy Garoppolo’s deal he signed in August of 2022. With his injury that ended his season, the team saved 2.5 million based on his incentives.
It is important to note this is not the cap space that they have left for 2023. This does make it easier for the team to attempt to sign their players before free agency begins next week. The team has had to prioritize extending defensive end Nick Bosa, and there have already been reports of other players looking to play elsewhere. With these finalized numbers for the 49ers salary cap, the front office can begin to work on contract offers with an official idea of the cap space they have.
The team has a high number of free agents that they will either need to replace or re-sign. A full list can be read here. The 49ers have many late draft picks that will be cheaper for them to sign as well. The team has a decent amount of cap space, and can still restructure contracts this week to create more.
Continue watching for any contract restructures, and players re-signed ahead of free agency next week.
