Interesting stuff here from an ESPN survey showing that the Seahawks spent more per player than 31 of the 32 teams in the NFL last season — $2.303 million — behind only the Minnesota Vikings.
The NFL salary cap obviously limits what teams can spend, while also compelling them to spend a certain amount, and the full list of what every pro franchise spends shows NFL teams largely bunched in a group from 115 to 187. As the story attached to the list states, the list makes clear how the salary cap limits NFL salaries and holds player salaries down to a level that probably surprises many who just look at the league’s popularity and assume players must be as highly paid as any sport.
