The NFL Network reported that the expected salary cap for the 2021 season will settle for around $185 million.
The numbers aren’t fully set, but the NFL and its Player’s Association are still negotiating.
Teams will be notified of the final number ahead of the upcoming free agency period.
The NFL and NFLPA are also discussing how many fans will be projected at games next season, but with the pandemic it’s still unclear.
With these cap figures, we may see shorter-term contracts in the market for older veterans.
