NFL | Owners approve new labor deal
Wed, 8 Mar 2006 17:41:25 -0800

ESPNews reports NFL owners have approved the NFLPA's offer for a new collective bargaining agreement. The extension will last six years and take the league through the 2012 season. It is unknown what the salary cap will be for the 2006 season, but it will be higher than the previously reported $94.5 million.

here's the ESPN link.

$104 million dollar cap this year. Two teams voted against it, Cincy and Buffalo. I think I read it was a 6 year deal as well. More details in the article.

Vote was 30-2 with Bills and Bengals voting no. If the brain dead managements of those 2 franchises voted against it I will assume the deal makes sense.

Considering the Steeelers were making moves to get under the 94.5 million cap number, the 10 million is only to going to help to keep guys like Keisel and Hope around. Maybe even ARE.

.......And now back to football. See you all again here in 6 years. I don't want to see the salary cap removed and have the NFL turn into the MLB. Peace.
