Retained Players on Team

How many players with retained salaries can one team have on roster? is there a maximum? 


Aug 22, 2023

While a team can only be retaining up to 3 cap hits on players they have traded away, there is no limit on how many players a team can have on their roster with cap hits retained by other teams.
