The lockout ended in August and was supposed to be fair for both sides. Apparently, not so much. At least that is the question being asked by both the NFL and NFLPA. The salary cap was originally rumored to be in the 125 million dollar range that was lowered to an estimate of 120 million but over the course of last week, ProFootballTalk.com reported that the number may be lower. With only 9 days remaining until the start of free agency, teams still don’t know what the cap number will be.
A definitive answer is due in the next couple of days but it apparently is being reworked by the NFL and the NFLPA in an effort to raise the cap number. Many NFL owners complained that the cap under the CBA was too low and left very little room to manage their team. Some teams are well over the 125 million dollar estimated number. No one seems to be complaining about the possible change or the increased spending limit.
