’09 cap goes up $4M

According to NFL Network’s Adam Schefter the league’s salary cap for teams has increased from $123M to $127M, giving teams $4M more of cap space.

This shouldn’t really have a major impact on a lot of the league’s teams that were comfortably under the initial figure, including the Bills. But for the Jets and Colts, it’s good news.

Schefter stated the reason for the increase was due to the collective bargaining agreement language concerning cap adjustment. The salary cap figure is reduced if teams spend over the cap in cash and it’s increased if teams don’t spend up to the cap.

It’s kind of an indication that teams over the past year have not been spending wildly (excluding Oakland of course) with actual cash out.
