Dead money for the NFL salary cap is guaranteed cash and bonuses for a player who no longer is on that particular team. The dead money comes from what the player was owed before the team decided to move on.
When an NFL team signs a player to a contract with guarantees and bonuses but then releases that player, the franchise must still pay that money. It also counts toward salary caps for coming seasons, which would affect that team’s future plans.
