Salary Cap could exceed 127.5 Mill
Posted 12 December 2013 - 04:20 PM
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.

fans of teams that are in cap hell (that's us) are a little bit happier.

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