Higher cap means everyone has more $$ to spend. Steelers can raise their offers above what they had before, but so can the teams seeking the FAs.

If somone was leaving for a $3 million offer because the Steelers were only offering $2 million, they still probably will leave for a revised $4 million offer now that the Steelers can offer a revised $3 million.

Props to Tags, props to the PA and props to especially the owners of the NFL. With all the negative surrounding the Snyders and the Jones's, this proves that those guys were never the enemy, this proves that they sacrificed for the league and it proves that the NFL will always remain on top. As much as I dislike Gene Upshaw, he got his players a great deal, the owners realized that these players who put their lives on the line, deserve alittle more. This isnt baseball where guys sit on their butts 2 and half hours out of the 3 in their games. These guys ruin their bodies for life and deserve to be on a different level then those of basketball players and baseball players.

Paul Tags really out did himself in what will more then likely be his last CBA situation in his awesome commish career. He took over Rozelle's spot and carried the league to heights that even Rozelle me never have thought could happen. I am very happy right now, as a Steeler fan and especially as an NFL guy. The NFL is the best league in the world and football is the best sport in the world. I am so happy now that we as fans can really enjoy free agency and the draft and not have to worry about the whats if's. Long live the NFL....

It may have been a last hurrah for Tags, but not surprisingly Dan Rooney was involved as well.

During one break Wednesday, Tagliabue huddled in a hotel room with the owners Jerry Richardson of the Carolina Panthers, John Mara of the Giants and Pat Bowlen of the Denver Broncos, trying to get their help persuading the other owners to accept the deal.

Tagliabue said that the model for the agreement was devised by the Jets' owner, Woody Johnson, and Jonathan Kraft, president of the New England Patriots; it was modified by Dan Rooney, the Pittsburgh Steelers' owner, and **** Cass, president of the Baltimore Ravens; and further modified by Mara, Richardson and Bowlen, with help from Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys and Arthur Blank of the Atlanta Falcons.


Did anyone else catch the video of Ralph Wilson saying he voted against the deal because he didn't understand it? What an embarassment the Bills franchise has become.

On the other hand, Jerry Jones apparently has been an owner long enough that he now works with others.

The revenue sharing model will require contributions of approximately $500 million over the first four years, and several hundred million over the final two years of the deal, in a tiered system. Tagliabue said that the top-five revenue teams will contribute the most, followed by the sixth through the tenth, then the eleventh through the fifteenth. In total, over $850 million will be contributed by the ?haves? to the ?have-nots? over the six years.

The franchise tag rule will not change significantly over the first two times a team tags a player, but Tagliabue said that the new provisions will virtually insure a long-term contract at that point ? it?s assumed that a third consecutive franchise tag of the same player would prove so cost-prohibitive that a long-term deal would be the only reasonable option.

Players drafted in the 2nd through 7th rounds will have maximum contracts of 4 years in future. First-round draft picks will still have contracts that are negotiable in years.

I'm just happy I don't have to watch teams such as NY, Washington or Dallas stock up on half the NFL and become the modern day Yankees or Red Sox.

Wonder how much this will influence ARE's decision when he said he'd take less to come back to Pittsburgh

Comon boys, lets bring back Hope, Keisel, get Townsend back under contract and sign Ike to a long term deal. El would be the icing on the cake.
