NFL Teams Ranked How Much They Paid Players Not on Their Team in 2020

Published

In the National Football League, the good teams are good for a reason, and the bad teams usually stay bad.

We’re approaching one of the most exciting times of the NFL offseason each year, as the league’s free agency period will open on March 17. Players who are designated as free agents can now have the ability to sign with any franchise in the league, and those teams with plenty of room to spend money will look to improve their team and make an impact for the following season. However, we see it every year – while some signings will be hits for teams, there will be plenty of misses by clubs around the league.

From Reddit user /u/fortune_auto, this visual based on the 2020 NFL season shows how much each team paid the salaries of players who weren’t even on their team. This is what’s known as dead salary-cap money, which is money being paid to a player who was traded or released before his contract expired. The visual itself is simple and the point, as it needs to be with ranking them, and showing that the teams who struggled with the cap likely didn’t make the postseason.

NFL Teams Ranked How Much They Paid Players Not on Their Team in 2020

The five teams that paid the most money to players no longer on their team were the Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, and Minnesota Vikings. None of these teams made the postseason in 2020. In fact, of the 20 teams in the league who paid the money in dead cap space, only five (25%) made the postseason. Of the twelve franchises that spent the least in this area, eight of them (66.66%) made it to the playoffs.

These are the five largest dead-cap hits in the history of the National Football League, according to CBS Sports.

  1. Carson Wentz (Philadelphia Eagles): $33.8 million
  2. Jared Goff (Los Angeles Rams): $22.2 million
  3. Brandin Cooks (Los Angeles Rams): $21.8 million

A World of Languages in One Visualization

Published

on

One of the most exquisite and elegantly designed visualizations I have encountered is this chart by designer Alberto Lucas López titled “A world of languages”, which explores the incredible diversity of languages spoken around the world. The thoughtfully chosen colors, spherical format, organic yet minimalist layout, and simple elegance make for a pleasing graphic worthy of being framed on the wall.

Did you know that there are at least 7,102 known languages that are alive in the world today? 23 of these languages serve as the primary form of communication for 4.1 billion people! The colors provide insight into the regions where the languages originate, which helps give a sense of the population, history, and power of these dialects. There are additional charts below the main feature that showcase the most popular languages being learned around the world, the number of countries in which the most prominent languages are spoken, and the distribution of living languages by country. It may come as no surprise that English is the most popular language to learn with 1,500 million learners!

This graphic also highlights the incredible linguistic diversity of Papua New Guinea. According to the chart, 839 languages are spoken in Papua New Guinea. Why is Papa New Guinea such a linguistic mosaic? There are many elements to Papua New Guinea’s abundance of languages, but one of the most fascinating factors is how the rugged landscape (with mountains, jungles, and swaps) keeps tribes isolated, which preserves their languages.

How can something so small be responsible for so many deaths? Malaria is easily spread by mosquito bites and is the main cause of these deaths. The second deadliest animal is near and dear to our hearts, the human. Humans are technically animals and they have been found to be the cause of 475,000 humans deaths every year. Your snake fears are founded as they are the third deadliest and responsible for 50,000 human deaths. The deadliest snake is the aggressive saw-scaled viper, which scientists believe is responsible for more human deaths than all other snake species combined. Man’s best friend unfortunately found itself in 4th place. Dogs kill 25,000 humans every year, with rabies cited as a main cause for these large number of deaths. The appropriately named Assassin Bug, the Tsetse Fly, and the Freshwater Snail all tied for the fifth deadliest animals. They were all found to be responsible for 10,000 human deaths each year. How do larger animals rank in terms of human deaths they cause every year? The shark and wolf bring up the rear of the list with just 10 human deaths every year. Lions and elephants claim 100 lives, while the hippopotamus is more lethal with 500 human deaths. The crocodile is the only large animal on the list to kill more than one thousand people every year. Do you have any newfound fears after seeing this chart of deadly animals?
