Yes, owners were told on Wednesday to expect the 2014 salary cap to climb from $123 million to $126.3 million.

The real expectation is that the expected number will be even higher.

Per a league source, the final number could be more than $127.5 million per team. That would be a 3.65-percent increase over last year.

Last year, the league initially expected the salary cap to inch up from $120.6 million to $121 million. We were told (by the same source) that it would actually be more than $122 million.

The final numbers are announced not long before the start of the new league year in March, at which time every team must be in compliance with the spending maximum.

Well that should be enough to cover for Stewart and Williams, now what to do about the rest of the team.

Yep, just gives us a little more wiggle room with our bad contracts.  Unfortunately, everyone who was in a better cap situation than us is still in a better cap situation than us because they get the extra money too.

Imo, the cap should at least rise 10 million with these absurd QB contracts.

We should be granted an additional $20 million buffer to account for the fact that our last gm didn't know how much everybody should be paid

Tough to name a franchise QB that isn't doing pretty good in the win column too.

 

Agents just whip GMs in contract negotiations.  The beating got so intense and lopsided for rookie contracts that the NFL finally instituted a rookie wage scale.  Will QB contracts eventually force the NFL to institute a max contract like the NBA has?

I'm pretty sure you were being sarcastic so this comment isn't directed at you. But for those that don't know, the cap is based on a % of revenue coming into the league. So the design is such that players get a bigger payday as the league has more money coming in. What teams spend on players has no impact on the where the league sets the salary cap.

This might be irrelevant, but does that grant us 'more' compensation picks? Cause of the players we cut?

I hope with this new estimate we can 

1) Resign Hardy     (maybe 8mil/yr)

2) Sign a decent RT (maybe 3mil/yr)

3) Sign a decent CB (maybe 3mil/yr)
