NFL: Cap Going Up by Over 2 Mil 3/1/13
UNDATED (AP) - An NFL Players Association official familiar with the league's salary-cap negotiations tells The Associated Press the figure for the 2013 season will rise to $123 million from $120.6 million in 2012.
The official says the increase is a result of a jump in projected league revenues and greater-than-expected revenues last season, primarily from NFL Properties.
The cap is expected to increase over the next two years particularly once the NFL's new television contracts kick in for the 2014 season. Those additional revenues will be reflected in the salary cap for 2015, which is expected to see a more significant increase than the roughly 2 percent hike from 2012 to 2013.
