A clearer picture of the roster is beginning to take shape, although this roster is far from a finished product. There is still almost three months until the start of camp and plenty of time to add more pieces to the roster.

It seems that few teams have been able to master the NFL salary cap like the New England Patriots. Sustaining success over a decade without having to blow things up.

Other teams haven’t been so lucky. The New York Jets for example, are currently looking at a $19+ million deficit after a 6-10 season.

The New England Patriots’ season got off to a shaky start, as the team was 3-3 through their first six games. Since then, however, the Patriots have been on a roll. They have won their past five consecutive games, by an average margin of victory of 22.4 points per game.
