Cap could be a "Soft" Cap.

1

The players are clearly excited about the agreement in the proposed CBA that would force teams to spend as much money as needed to reach the $120 million dollar threshold, but this deal could still hurt veterans on teams who have been aggressive with their spending and who find themselves over the proposed $120 million threshold. I might have found my answer. I’ve learned from people close to the negotiations that we may not see the massive cap casualties that we’ve expected. In fact, there may not be any penalties for teams who are over the $120 million dollar threshold. What that would allow teams to do is hang onto veterans, if they so choose, without penalty. What was less clear to me was whether or not we’ll actually even see a salary cap. It is my understanding that for the first few years of this deal, the "cap" on spending could be soft or even non-existant.

Latest Rumors on the Deal

"Among the details NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is revealing to owners Tuesday at the owners' meeting in Rosemont, Ill., is that in the next proposed agreement players will receive a 48 percent share of "all revenue," without the $1-billion-plus credit off the top that had been a point of contention in earlier negotiations, according to sources familiar with the presentation. Under the new formula being negotiated, players will receive 48 percent of all revenue and will never dip below a 46.5 percent take of the money, sources said."

Sports Radio Interviews What do you think of these workouts the players are having right now? "It’s stupid. It’s stupid. I don’t understand what they are doing. They are basically showing their poker cards. Why are you doing this? You don’t see the owners stressing out or whatever else. You see the teams going out and having individual workouts. I think it’s dumb. I disagree with them [owners] even knowing that they [players] are doing that."
