    That's not even a half million increase, that doesn't help us at all.

    Unfortunately that's where I figured it was going to end up. Poop on a stick.

    Yep, nobody paying attention should be surprised by this - particularly the Texans FO.

    This.

    Even Charlie Casserly predicted this months ago. Next year it should resume moderate annual increases of 5-10%

    It doesn't help the teams but it sure helps the owners wallets.

    Cap won't see a huge increase until the new tv contract that hasn't been a secret.

    NFL is taking away millions of dolllar of salary-cap space from Cowboys and Redskins for how they front-loaded deals during uncapped year.

    Tears of joy. :D

    10 million from the cowboys and 36 million from the skins. They are allowed to spread it over 2 years. Wow

    The money's directed towards the other 28 teams, excluding the raiders and saints. 1.6 million

    How is this not a surprise?

    Wasn't the cap $129M before the lock out? They said they dropped it last year, because of the lockout... I would have thought there would be some increase to get back to pre-lockout level.

    The owners aren't making any less money, isn't the cap based on revenue?

    The benefits package has increased and that lessons the money available for the cap calculation. In addition, the bonus package for players who out perform their contracts (such as Arian Foster) was not in place this year but has been reinstituted and reduced the available cap number by about $3.6 mil.

    The cap is based on revenue, and the players aren't getting as big a share of it as they were under the previous CBA.
