The 49ers are in better shape than most NFL teams under the $182.5 million salary cap for the 2021 season.

The 49ers have $24,909,627 in salary-cap space, placing them with the 10th-most space in the league, according to the latest figures released by the NFL Players Association.

The 49ers rolled over $13.2 million of unused cap space from 2020, which includes more than $11 million in unearned incentives.

The NFL’s open-negotiating period for free agency begins on Monday.

The 49ers’ list of scheduled free agents includes tackle Trent Williams, fullback Kyle Juszczyk, receiver Kendrick Bourne, defensive linemen D.J. Jones, Kerry Hyder and Solomon Thomas, and defensive backs Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, K’Waun Williams, Ahkello Witherspoon and Jaquiski Tartt.
