UPDATED: Seahawks salary cap situation

The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) released the salary cap situations for each team in the league. The Seahawks have 62 contracts and have $14.2 million* in salary cap space, according to the NFLPA’s numbers.

It’s worth noting, though, that not all free-agent contracts are included in the report (Michael Bennett and Tony McDaniel signed deals this week). The current salary cap is set at $133 million per team, which is $10 million more than last year.

The Seahawks have been linked to a number of defensive linemen — they cut Red Bryant and Chris Clemons and lost Clinton McDonald to free agency this offseason — and are still in the market to add another player up front. They’ve also been linked to re-signing Sidney Rice. But the Seahawks also could sign contract extensions with Earl Thomas and/or Richard Sherman this offseason.

 *This post originally stated the Seahawks had $16.1 million in salary cap space but the NFLPA has since updated that number.
