2014 AFCE – PLAYERS RETURNING FROM IR

2014 AFCE – PLAYERS RETURNING FROM IR
class="post-date-wrap left relative post-date-mob">

The 2014 team building phase will soon be in high gear. There are free agents to sign or part with, contracts to be renegotiated, players to draft, and trades to be made. Some teams also have some significant talent under contract for 2014 that is tucked away on the injured reserve list. The cap hits of these players are already included in the available 2014 figures. All the players  need to do is get healthy and have a team that still wants their services.

The players are listed with their 2014 cap charge. Players with cap hits significantly under 500k are not listed, but feel free to complain about omitted players in the comment section.

BUFFALO BILLS:

QB – K Kolb , 3.5M
S – A Williams, 1.7M
S – J Meeks, 550k

MIAMI DOLPHINS:

CB – D Patterson, 5.4M
WR – B Gibson, 3.7M

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS:

DT – V Wilfork, 11.6M
OLB – J Mayo, 7.6M
TE – R Gronkowski, 5.4M
DT – T Kelly, 3M
RT – S Vollmer, 3M
S – A Wilson, 1.8M
WR – J Boyce 600k
DT – A Armstead, 495k

NEW YORK JETS:

QB – M Sanchez, 13M
RB – M Goodson, 2M
OLB – A Barnes, 1.5M
WR – S Hill, 1.3M
WR – C Gates, 645k

Before we as fans get into the “what-could-be” for each team in terms of cap and free agency, its important first to know a team’s “what-is”. Perhaps a team can vastly improve without hitting the free agent market, which as we all know, can be overpriced for the best at each position. This year’s Injured Reserve list contains many players of significance as did last year’s. Be warned however. Having great players on this list might give a team or it’s fans hope, but don’t let it fool you. The top 5 teams in terms of cap dollars on the 2012 IR list were as follows: The Buccaneers, Jets, Falcons, Bengals, and Ravens, respectively.
