Salary cap estimations from ESPN have the Buffalo Bills carrying over one of the highest totals in the NFL in salary cap space from 2013 to 2014.

The Bills will carry over an estimated $17,801,975 to this coming season. That amount refers to unused cap space from the previous season. It can be added to the team's spending ceiling for the next season. The cap for 2014 is expected to be around $126 million, so that means the Bills could actually spend $1143,801,975 this coming year.

That carryover is fourth-highest in the NFL. The Cleveland Browns will carry $24,537,568 from 2013 into 2014.

The Bills have 63 players under contract already for 2014 who will earn a combined $125,092,434. So this carryover gives the team some breathing room entering free agency next month. But around $6 million must be reserved for the Bills' 2014 draftees. The highest 2014 cap hits for the Bills are DE Mario Williams at $18.8 million, WR Stevie Johnson at $8.5 million, DT Marcell Dareus at $6,493,232 and DT Kyle Williams at $6.25 million.

The Dallas Cowboys already have more than $152 million committed to players in 2014. The Oakland Raiders, by contract, have less than $68 million committed.
