From Charles Robinson, Yahoo Sports:


A league source said this week that it is a virtual certainty that the salary cap will jump from $85.5 million to $95 million next year.

If that turns out to be so, we will not enter the offseason over the cap. That also means that a lot of this year's free agents will get paid. Not merely paid. Paid.

That could be a good thing and a bad thing to the NFL. The good thing will be that the teams have more money and the NFL won't be in a lockout. The bad news is that the players will be wanting even bigger contracts and the money would be crazy.

To quote Big Boy from Outkast in the beginning of the 'Hey Ya' video.

"This ain't bull**** money!"

I think it's definitely a good thing. The league and the teams are raking it in, and it's time the mid and lower-tier players got some security out of a job that has an average career length of about 3-4 years.

There's plenty to go around, but people are greedy as hell.

Unless the CBA is renewed before march....then it will jump higher
