NFL players are going to start demanding bigger contracts. According to the USA Today, the NFLPA is reportedly looking at another rise in the NFL Salary Cap for the 2016 NFL Season.
The NFL Players Association says it “conservatively” expects the recent trend of $10 million per-team increases to the salary cap to continue in 2016, executive director DeMaurice Smith said Thursday.
That’d put the salary cap upwards of $153 million per team when the new league year begins March 9. The cap will be set officially a short time before that.
This is great news for guys like Josh Norman, who are going to be demanding a huge amount next season. If it goes up 10 million NFL teams will be able to afford more players, which is good for every team.
