As they kick off the offseason practice phase known as Organized Team Activities this week, the Washington Redskins stand at the league roster limit of 90 players. They also have just about reached the salary cap limit.
Washington currently has 89 players under contract, with third-round tackle Morgan Moses the only player unsigned.
According to the NFL Players Association’s records, the Redskins have $129.33 million committed to salaries, with another $2.34 million of cap space remaining.
The Redskins on Friday signed top pick Trent Murphy – the 47th overall selection of the draft. Murphy signed a four-year deal worth $4.21 million, including a signing bonus of roughly $1.44 million. The cap hit for his contract will be $765,544.
According to the league’s slotted salary system for rookies, Moses will sign a deal worth $3.05 million over four years. His contract comes with a signing bonus of roughly $690,832. Moses – the 66th pick of the draft – will carry a cap hit of $577,708.
During the offseason, only the top 51 contracts count against the cap. Because the roster already features 90 players, including Moses, Washington would have to make a roster move to add any more players.
The Redskins currently rank fifth in the NFL in spending behind Baltimore, Cleveland, Seattle and Chicago.
