As we've seen in previous seasons, some teams would max out the respective years' salary cap while other teams did not. Big market teams such as Dallas, New England, and Washington would freely spend more than teams who were more miserly in spending habits due to simple economics. With the salary cap reigned in, it can make salary cap maximization more reachable. Granted salary cap optimization will always be an art and science that some front offices artfully manipulate while others flounder. In addition, players in the first round may have greater mobility to move from team to team as they exit their rookie contracts sooner. The free flow of player capital via free agency may compound this effect of increased parity and contention of more NFL teams. This all being said, a monumental and tidal change in parity is unlikely, but some effect is a possibility. It has happened that teams have transformed from "worst-to-first" in the past, but perhaps bad teams won't be so mired in mediocrity for long spans of time. High revenue teams can't exploit a high ceiling in the salary cap, plus more teams will find top draft picks obtainable sooner, which will all-in-all feed into a diffusion of NFL talent more evenly between teams. What insights and musings does everyone have? Does anyone see it play out this way, or even the opposite? Or no change at all?
