Salary cap officially hits $133 million

During the 2013 season, owners were told that the salary cap for 2014 would be $126.3 million.  We immediately were told it would be higher.

Last week, it was reported that the salary cap would be $132 million.  We immediately were told it would be higher.

Last night, we reported that it definitely would be (not might be or could be or should be) $133 million.  Now, it officially is.

The NFLPA has announced that the cap has increased by a whopping $10 million since 2013.  With teams averaging $6.1 million of carryover cap space from last year, that gives teams an average of $139.1 million to spend in 2014.

Or, multiplied by 32, $4.451 billion.

    I don’t understand the relevance of the picture of chump change.

    Youngest winning Super Bowl team of-all-time. Petty things like the salary cap are of no concern to Champions like us.

    Gasp! Now that’s why we pay $30 for parking and $200 for ONE ticket.

  5. seatownballers says: Feb 28, 2014 6:36 PM

    And the cowboys will go 8-8
    Vikings improve to 6-10

    Roger Goodell get a nice bonus .

    So, can someone explain to me why Sean Gilbert is hootin’ and hollerin’ about how bad this deal is for the players???

  8. arwiv says: Feb 28, 2014 6:49 PM

    Amazingly, the cowboys are still 7 mill over the cap.

    ….until they have to sign Wilson, Sherman, and Thomas to extensions. No big deal though, right?

    And officially hits the bottom of the consumers pockets.

  12. sg419 says: Feb 28, 2014 6:53 PM

    Funny we don’t see anyone complaining that the players were screwed.

    Can someone get a recently updated salary cap list for us? To see how much space each team has…

  14. raiderufan says: Feb 28, 2014 6:57 PM

    Damn, my raiders are like 120 mill under the cap now!

  15. kuythasgout says: Feb 28, 2014 7:08 PM

    As someone who has nearly finished season 2 of Breaking Bad…

    This article should come with a SPOILER ALERT.

    132M or 133M, it doesn’t matter. These GM’s are so sneaky with how to bend the rules. 6million dollar signing bonus with base salary of 650k going against the cap. The ceiling has a detachable roof.

    Raiders can build a stadium with the cap money they have this year.

  19. rmavs says: Feb 28, 2014 7:25 PM

    New TV money deals…

  20. thefiesty1 says: Feb 28, 2014 7:26 PM

    CowBabies will still go 8-8 and wonder why they spend all that money.

  21. handsofsweed says: Feb 28, 2014 7:33 PM

    This cap gets any higher and the Raiders are gonna be able to sign a new stadium in FA.

  22. keylimelight says: Feb 28, 2014 7:38 PM

    Wow, that 4.5 billion in player wages is quite a chunk. And that doesn’t count coaches, GMs or the owners’ take. Talk about big business!

  23. ravenswhat says: Feb 28, 2014 7:39 PM

    And the cheap and greedy owners will still lowball the talent out in the cotton fields. Good boy.

  24. boobie323 says: Feb 28, 2014 7:40 PM

    Big Shout out to Jerry Jones I KNOW he had his Hand in this

  25. bennyb82 says: Feb 28, 2014 7:56 PM

    With how much the salary cap increases each year, the fines actually don’t seem that bad.

  26. garyhd01 says: Feb 28, 2014 7:58 PM

    and your raiders have to spend 89% of the cap to be in compliance you better sign some good ones i for one would like my rams to now get saffold resigned then we can dip a toe into free agency and sign our draft picks which my guess is 5 inside the first 2 rounds. 5 of the first 50 may be rams

  27. joejacks says: Feb 28, 2014 8:03 PM

    Steelers 7th SB coming up. Championship!

  28. seattlemike25 says: Feb 28, 2014 8:25 PM

    Horrible news for the rest of the NFL… Cap to $153 mil in 2 years means extensions for Wilson, Thomas, Sherman, Bennett, Avril, Wagner and room for some 1 year deals for vets that want a ring… or three! Sorry NFL fans outside of Seattle, it’s going to be a rough 3 to 5 years for you.

  29. tangysizzl says: Feb 28, 2014 8:59 PM

    That gives Green Bay 35 million in cap space, more than enough to re-sign Sam Shields and Jermichael Finley, extend Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson and still have some money left to take a real stab in free agency.

  30. jonestocarr says: Feb 28, 2014 9:11 PM

    One would think reading the Seahawks fan comments they won each playoff game by thirty points…your one Lynch injury from wild card status…but enjoy your championship…a year is short.

  31. discountdoublecheck says: Feb 28, 2014 9:20 PM

    133 million…or ‘3.02272727 Roger Goodell Salaries’

  32. johnnybandwagon says: Feb 28, 2014 10:29 PM

    Screw the rush for a new stadium in the east bay. I love my 50 yard line seats for $25 each.

  33. djstat says: Feb 28, 2014 11:36 PM

    Yet Sean Hilbert thinks the players got screwed. Keep in mind the owners and players split the pie 50/50. Out of the owners 50 comes Sakarya and good elks salary. #seangilbertisafake

  34. bert1913 says: Feb 28, 2014 11:46 PM

    perfect timing for the seahawks

  35. broncos303 says: Mar 1, 2014 12:50 AM

    Smart move by the NFL to just raising the cap now to pay more money to the players instead of having to pay billions in the future.

  36. open1337 says: Mar 1, 2014 1:03 AM

    Nice pic Walter and Skylar White…lol

  37. handsofsweed says: Mar 1, 2014 9:31 AM

    Easy there, Seahawk fans. Hubris is a painful lot in life. As a Steeler fan, we were warned TWICE about “The Target” on our backs by Pats fans….we didn’t listen and ran our mouths (well, not ME, but you know the rest that did).

    Then came the loudmouth Giants, Packers and Ravens fans. We warned them about “The Target” and they didn’t listen and were brutally humbled, just like we were.

    You’re next, Seattle fans. You’ve been warned. Listen to those that have traveled this path many times before you.

    “How you suppose to field a winning team for only $133 million?”
    Sincerely, Jerry Jones
