• Salary cap expected to hit $130 million

    Summary of 8 articles · Updated Feb 21, 2014
    As first reported by ESPN, the NFL salary cap is expected to increase to $130 million. Even with the salary cap projected at $130 million for the new year, the Chargers are barely over at $130.5 million for 59 contracts. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the salary cap for the 2014 season is now projected to rise to about $130 million, up five percent from $123 million last year. Players make 48 percent of revenues, so a $130 million cap would suggest teams average $270 million in revenue. The league should announce the salary cap number for the 2014 season in early March. Indianapolis The Lions got some salary cap relief Thursday without having to release any players or renegotiate any contracts. They could clear significant space by working out an extension with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who presently occupies $22.4 million of cap space.
