The Kansas City Chiefs have a QB in Patrick Mahomes who has won an NFL MVP one season and came back the next season to win the Super Bowl.
The team seems to be stacked at various positions, but they are a little strapped for cash these days.
ESPN’s Field Yates took to Twitter on Monday and shared the salary cap space of each of the 32 NFL teams. The Chiefs had the least amount.
They had $177 TOTAL. One hundred and seventy seven dollars.
Official cap space by team (teams 24-32):
24. BAL: 13,513,779
25. GB: 12,966,433
26. MIN: 12,495,443
27. SEA: 11,317,846
28. NO: 9,237,537
29. PIT: 8,667,814
30. ATL: 7,530,188

What exactly could $177 in cap room get you? https://t.co/UQ5zHGASQo

Never thought I’d see a day where I have more money in my bank account during a recession than an NFL team has cap space. https://t.co/ohfhnyuuvQ

My wife has more of a salary cap when she goes to Kohls than what the Chiefs have. https://t.co/KEWyRCIeBp

Not exactly an ideal situation, but the team will make moves to clear cap space between now and the NFL Draft.
