NFL Salary Cap Increases To Be Small
The players agreed to receive an average of 47% revenue over the length (ten years) of the deal, however many pundits were assuming that once the money from the television contracts kicked in the salary cap would sky rocket. According to the Sports Business Journal, that will not be the case. Daniel Kaplan reports that the NFL has told teams that the cap will increase to $121 million in 2013, $122 million in 2014, $125 million in 2014 and $130 million in 2016. This is a far cry from the jump to $140 million that most experts expected.
