Salary cap may fall to $170 mil from $198
Just heard on SXM Scoreboard on Sirius and the team hurt the worst will be the Saints. What an enormous loss in revenue. Over 25% salary cap reduction.

This is BS. NFL about to finalize new TV contracts and cap will actually end up being much higher than the current talking points.

quote:

Peter King explains in his latest Football Morning in America column that the NFL is “within a month” of finalizing 10-year TV deals. Those packages “could result in an aggregate increase of 70 to 100 percent increase in rights fees from the last contract.”

Jabari Young of CNBC recently reported that the frameworks for the deals could be finalized before the setting of the 2021 salary cap, a signal that some of the money to be earned in the TV deals could be shifted to pump the spending limit for the coming season above the expected figure of $180 million, which would represent a pandemic-fueled drop of $18.2 million from 2020.

Why do football players allow stuff like this to happen? Mlb player union would never allow this.

Nick Underhill posted an article that details how easy it will be for the Saints to get under the cap, and even have cap space to make a couple of FA signings. Don't buy into the pussy arse panic.

Because it's way larger and can't hold ranks but once they started to take action to prevent stuff like this they'd be called selfish and ungrateful.

Salary cap may fall to $170 mil from $198

The NFL and NFLPA agreed to a minimum of 175 million last summer. And there is talk of it being negotiated to 185 (pushing some of the losses back which would reduce cap growth in later years).

2021 NFL salary cap could be around $185 million - 2-4-21
According to Tom Pelissero, the NFL could see the 2021 salary cap be around or even above $185 million:

quote:

The NFL and NFLPA began preliminary negotiations last month on the 2021 salary cap. Some team officials believe (and surely hope) the cap will ultimately land closer to $185 million per club — if not a little higher — than the $175 million minimum the sides agreed to last summer as they braced for empty and mostly empty stadiums.

Right they just allow majority of teams to spend very low on player salaries...

Not to mention, the number of games is increasing to 17 which is sure to add some opportunities for additional TV revenue.

this is an annual event here. every offseason we have to hear the experts on this board scream doom and gloom over our cap situation only to watch Loomis make it work and prove them all wrong.

We need a better attitude than make it work.. we need to improve and get playmakers to be on our team. How do you expect to sign playmakers? High draft picks? I'm no expert but things can be better.

Kinda tired of being embarrassed in the playoffs man! Lets win another Superbowl.
