    It's 123 Million :eek:


    With free agency on the horizon and the start of the league year coming March 12, many teams are sweating the weight of the salary cap. Good news comes in the form of some small relief, though, as CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports the cap has come in, officially, at $123 million.

    That's a substantial jump from the expected $121.5 million that many expected and a bump up from the $120.6 million cap from 2012.

    La Canfora reported over the weekend that the cap would rise and while $1.5 million (or, if you prefer, $2.4 million from last season) might not seem like a substantial amount of money, it at least creates a much better scenario than a totally flat cap or the expected small jump.

    Honestly, the lower the cap the better, from the Pats' perspective. Cap expansion bails out poorly managed team, and lower caps conversely reward teams that spend carefully. I'd have preferred a $121.5M cap, because it likely would have led to a couple more quality veterans being cut who could have ended up in Foxboro.

    Exactly...the lower the better.

    Unfortunately, I guess it's higher than $123MM.....it's $123.9MM


    "Teams get more money to spend - salary cap for new league year is $123.9 million per team after accounting of league revenues, per sources."

    higher CAP means FA's wanting more money and more big names geting the TAG but 2 million more is not a whole lot it's helps with the rookies thats about what a 2th rounds picks cap hit will be around 2 million
