Kansas City Chiefs salary cap space stands at $2.8 million entering June

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed all their rookies in just a couple weeks, which leaves the team with $2.8 million salary cap space. More specifically, the Chiefs have $2,857,465 in cap space.

The offseason roster max is 90 players but only the top 51 contracts are reflected in the cap number. The Chiefs will be cutting down to 53 players shortly before the season starts in September.

What else could affect the Chiefs salary cap space?

The future of Brandon Flowers could come into play. The Chiefs could save $7.5 million against the cap this year and next by releasing him, which would seem like a possibility now that Flowers hasn't showed up to OTAs.

The Chiefs could extend the contracts of Alex Smith and / or Justin Houston. They're talking to both camps about new deals but there haven't been any updates lately. Given the reports that the Chiefs are far apart on talks with Smith, maybe that doesn't happen before the season. We'll see.

The Chiefs will be cutting some of their own players when they must cut down to 53 players in August. Other teams will also be cutting players, some legit veterans, and those players could be of interest to the Chiefs.

Last year, Kansas City capitalized on cut down weekend by signing seven players who were waived from their teams. Some of those players, such as Marcus Cooper, ended up coming in handy last season.
