New, comments

After it was discovered that the NFL hid around $120 million in revenue from its players, the salary cap is expected to rise a projected $2 million per team. This adjustment would put the cap at about $157 million, should it hold true. Malcolm Jenkins also signed a 5 year extension with the Eagles after his stellar production there. Saints' equipment manager Steve Landry died after a battle with ALS as well.
