ok, lets open a thread for cap since its a recurring subject on multiple threads any many people are deeply worried . which hopefully can be avoided At the moment - going by @Miguel of course - NE cap is at 12.4M (note: Slater's picked up option already accounted for) id follow this with one post that made most sense so far and has many basic info in place (hope @Kenneth Sims doesn't mind -- expand for full post) you can also calculate it approx. for yourselves here: New England Patriots Salary Cap Calculator | Over The Cap to sum it up: some additional 15M easily . 20+ possible . more depending on timing (Brady, Gronk, Gilmore..) when counting new additions divide reported apy by 30-50% to get approx 2019 hit as @luuked said they will not do anything of the above until they need to (new big contract being all but signed). there are plenty of reasons to keep that obscure.. ___ I hope @Miguel can chip in here. Maybe @Ian can lure him back for a moment to put some fans here out of cap depression..
