2013 Offseason Primer: The Salary Cap

2013 Offseason Primer: The Salary Cap

Hyped by on January 11, 2013 Website: nflsfuture.com

Twenty four NFL teams have turned their full attention to the 2013 season and eight more will join them in a matter of time. With the CBA changing the way the teams have to think about the salary cap, teams are preparing earlier and earlier for their future cap.The 2013 salary cap is tentatively set to be at or just below $121 million. Inevitably, emails begin to rush in at this time of the year, seeking specific team’s salary cap situation. With that in mind, I will begin to look at the offseason in a three part breakdown. First, we tackle the current salary cap numbers.

The 2012 salary cap was set at $120.6 million. With the cap looking to increase by $300,000, it could spell trouble for teams and some high paid players. Teams are eyeing their future in negotiations, hence why you see guys like Drew Brees, Matt Forte, and Mike Wallace fighting tooth and nail for contracts. The flat-lined nature of the salary cap is forcing teams to keep a watchful eye on the coming years.
