Look for major increases in the salary cap


Lost in the discussion of the collective bargaining discussion of last offseason is that the television contracts are up for renewal soon. Based on the past trends, this will cause a major jump in the cap. PFT has a few details on the figures being bounced around (link) and it's mind-blowing.

The real question will be if Mike Brown will stay ahead of the curve and use the current cap space to go after key free agents. I don't expect him to change his stripes - nor do I think the Daniel Snyder plan for free agency is even correct (see: Eagles, Dream Team). But we have an inexpensive core right now and can afford to pay for talent at positions we are weak in (safety, running back are two that come to mind).

If the cap is set at $125M next year, we'd have more than $50M in space with 32 players under contract. It might even be interesting to see them make a run at resigning Reggie Nelson before the year is up. I think his agent would prefer to see what the market can bear but who knows...
