Default Re: Texans - 2.4 Million Cap Carryover for 2013

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport initially reported the cap would be $123 million flat, but ESPN's Chris Mortensen says after accounting for league revenues, it gets a $900,000 bump. It's not a major spike, but it gives teams a little more breathing room than we were expecting. It could be the difference in keeping a veteran or signing a free agent.

Actually it seems to be $123.9M. Every penny counts.

Saw that........but things still remain confusing.

Florio of PFT reported this after initially reporting the Rapoport and Breer numbers:

UPDATE 6:55 p.m. ET: Chris Mortensen of ESPN puts the number at $123.9 million. Which we like, since it meshes with our recent report that the number is expected to be more than $123 million. It translates to a 2.7-percent increase over last year.
Then later Florio retracts:

Salary cap sits at $123 million precisely

There has been some confusion regarding the actual salary cap for 2013. We’ve confirmed via two sources that the team-by-team spending limit is and will be $123 million.
In the "comments," when someone questions Florio's "back track," Florio explains:

Chris Mortensen says after accounting for league revenues, it gets a $900,000 bump to $123.9M. So much for precision.

The extra $900,000 does not apply to the spending limit.
