After this week’s big splash into the free agency pool with defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, the Cleveland Browns figure to be done spending before the 2021 NFL draft. Now that we have the details of Clowney’s contract, it’s a good time to reset where the Browns stand in relation to the 2021 salary cap.

There are three primary sources for the salary cap room, and all three have slightly different figures for the Browns after including Clowney’s one-year contract worth $8 million, with $2.5 million guaranteed along with four void years.

The NFLPA’s public salary cap report lists the Browns with $10,640,310 as of April 15th.

Over the Cap has the Browns at $10,785,462, while Spotrac lists the Browns figure at $10,311,766. No matter the exact figure, Cleveland ranks 16th in available cap room amongst the NFL’s 32 teams. It does not include the rookie wage pool designated to sign the team’s draft picks.
