new provision in the most recent collective bargaining agreement allows NFL teams to carry over salary cap space from one year to the next, adding to the capital a team can use in free agency. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk obtained and published the figures from the 2012 season on Wednesday.

The Buffalo Bills have the ability to carry over $9.8 million, per Florio. That's them the eighth-highest figure in the league. Last year, the Bills carried over the entire $21 million in cap space from the 2011 season and used it to sign Stevie Johnson, Fred Jackson, Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, among others.
