The new league year begins on March 13 at 4:00 p.m. ET. At that moment, every team must be in compliance with the salary cap.
And yet no team knows specifically what it will be.
A league source tells PFT that the teams still have not been told the amount of the 2012 salary cap. As of March 3, the NFL and the union were “scrambling” to increase the number.
So far, they apparently haven’t figured out how to make it happen.
At some point, they need to bite the bullet and pull the sheet off the official number and persuade the teams it’s a plate of chicken salad.
