The NFL announced the 2014 salary cap today at $133 million per team, up $10 million from last year's mark of $123 million. As part of the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams can also carry over unspent cap dollars from the previous season.  The Green Bay Packers are expected to bring over an additional $9.98 million.  [...]


There has been speculation as to what the cap will be. Looks like it is set at $133 per team.

I don't really see this as a positive. It's a get out of jail free card for teams like the Cowboys and Denver who were reportedly in salary cap trouble.

It's also not like this information is escaping Sheilds, Finley, Jarius Byrd, Brian Orakpo, etc. and their agents. You think Rodgers got a big contract, wait until Luck is due and with another 15 or so mil in cap space than when A.R. was signed.

Well if this is the year, Ted actually is going to wade deeper into the FA pool. Than money can do nothing but help. Can allow either making more moves, or bigger moves, or using the extra space to front load more limiting how much of the future gets mortgaged.

Regardless of the amount of space there is, this is still the best possible year to throw our chips into the middle.

The cap was never set for 2014 was it. I thought the numbers given in the past were based on speculation. The cowboys and Broncos were in cap trouble when everyone thought the cap would be 125 million but as it turns out its not 125 its 133. Its not like teams knew the cap number for 2014, got in a bind and were bailed out when they raised it.

I know what you are saying but its not like it was raised to help those teams. Those teams just got lucky that it is higher than everyone initially thought. Their cap numbers were going to be what they were regardless of the salary cap total.

As far as future contracts go I think you will see guys like Luck really trying to cash in on their second contracts to make up for the huge deals they didn't get as rookies as well and the higher cap number will allow it to happen. At least for another decade or so until the last of the rookie jackpots are gone (Sam Bradford)

I know Godell didn't see that "America's Team" was in trouble so he suddenly decided to bump the cap for them. I understand (or at least assume) the move was made independent of the knowledge of cap status of marquee teams. My comments were simply that I feel there's an excitement among NFL fans that this is a good thing, but again, it's just a gift to teams that didn't responsibly manage their numbers and almost an unintended punishment for teams that did.

Furthermore, we can pretty much delete the Shields 5 mil/year thread. There is no way he's settling for that now.

If you don't think certain teams have additional influence due to their owners, you're wrong. Look at the Patriots. Robert Kraft takes over and suddenly they're a dynasty.

That said, the salary cap didn't expand the past few years, because De Smith borrowed against the future earnings to make his collective bargaining deal look better than it was. This was the first year the normal expansion of the cap came back online.

Question now is will we be players in free agency this season, or just lock up our own guys like Nelson, Cobb, Finley etc.
