NFL Salary Cap Going Up 5% - More Than Expected
The NFL will raise its salary cap to about $130 million, up about 5 percent from $123 million last season, league sources said Thursday.
The $130 million figure is higher than teams were expecting and is welcome news for many, especially the cash-strapped Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints.
I suppose this is good news/bad news - it gives the Steelers a little more flexibility with regard to vets who are going to be asked to take a salary reduction to stay
OTOH it allows other teams to have more $$$ to overpay for FAs such as Worilds the Steelers want to retain
