We all knew the Salary Cap would rise in 2016, but who would have thought it was going to rise 12 million dollars per team?
CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that the 2016 salary cap has been set at $155.27 million. That’s an increase of $11.99 million over the 2015 cap.
This is a huge increase and will be beneficial to teams struggling with cap space.
The cap increase will likely come as good news to teams like Miami, New Orleans, Baltimore and Buffalo, who are currently the only four teams with less than $10 million in cap space available, according to the most recent numbers.
