NFL salary cap increases for 2020 season
The NFL is holding its league meetings in Las Colinas, Texas, home of the late-great Texas Stadium. On Tuesday, the NFL informed teams that they project the salary cap will be in the range of $196.8 million to $201.2 million for next season.
The salary cap for the 2019 season is $188.2 million, which makes it likely that the cap will go up at least $10 million for the seventh consecutive season. Projected player costs, including benefits, for the 2020 season will be more than $7.7 billion.
The increase, relative to the 2011 cap, represents an increase of roughly 65 percent.
2011 was the first year of the Collective Bargaining Agreement that expires in 2020. Talks on a new CBA are ongoing between the NFL and NFLPA.
In 2011, there was a work stoppage. Both parties hope to avoid a stoppage but the pandering and positioning have been going on for a while. Look for acceptance of marijuana use by players to be a chip the NFLPA is unwilling to budge on.
