How NFL’s $255.4M salary cap will impact Chargers

The Chargers, who are strapped for cash going into this offseason, got great news when the official NFL salary cap was released.

The 2024 cap is set at $255.4 million, an increase of $30.6 million from this past season ($224.8 million).

With the official number locked in, Los Angeles is $22.1 million over the salary cap.

The 2024 NFL New League Year begins at 1 p.m. PT on March 13. All NFL teams must be under the salary cap by then.

Los Angeles can get accomplish that by making moves, such as trading/cutting Joey Bosa ($14 million), Khalil Mack ($23 million), Mike Williams ($20 million), Keenan Allen ($23.1 million) and cutting Eric Kendricks ($6.5 million).

Additionally, they will get some relief if Corey Linsley retires after June 1st.
