Kansas City Chiefs roster

The up-to-date team roster, including contract and salary cap information.

Salary sap space

Current space: $11.8 million.

This includes the estimated salary cap impacts of all known signings and releases. More information about our cap space calculation is available below the tables. All information shown here is current as of 10:12 a.m. on Monday, May 23.

Please note: Between the beginning of the new league year in mid-March and the end of each season, all NFL teams must remain below the salary cap. If our estimate of the team’s cap space is a negative number, it is either because a) contracts for some reported signings have not yet been officially submitted to the league office, or b) there is a difference between publicly available salary information and the official figures.

Roster table explanation: Exp is years of NFL experience. Thru indicates the final year player is under contract. Hit is the player’s total salary cap number for the current year. Dead shows dead money that will carried against the cap if the player is released in the current year, while Svgs indicates the salary cap savings under that release. Under each player’s name is the year they entered the league, their draft round/position and the team that first acquired them, followed by the college from which they came.

Calculation of current salary cap space:

Salary data shown in the table is from Spotrac.com, which estimates the team’s salary cap space at $12.1 million.

That figure is based on a total team salary cap of $208.6 million, $1.3 million in rollover and adjustments from 2021 and $8.0 million in dead cap from previously-released players.

But Spotrac’s figure does not include the salary cap impacts of the following recently-signed free agent (or drafted rookie) contracts. The amounts shown in parentheses are the estimated cap space decreases for each contract. These could change when actual figures are available.

  • None at this time

Nor does it include the estimated salary cap impacts of the following as-yet-unsigned rookies. The amounts shown in parentheses are the estimated cap space decreases for each contract. These could also change when actual figures are available. Under top-51 salary cap rules in place until the season begins, the contracts of any other new rookie player will have no impact on the team’s cap space.

  • Skyy Moore ($278,000)
  • Leo Chenal ($22,000)

With these figures (if any) included, the team’s cap space should be $11.8 million.


Remember: salary cap figures are estimates based on publicly available contract information, which can be misunderstood, rounded or inaccurately reported. Only the NFL, the involved teams and players know the precise figures. Therefore, any salary cap calculation must be taken with a grain of salt.
