Salary cap for 2016 set at $155.27 million per team
Teams now know how much they have to spend, assuming they want to spend it.
A league source tells PFT the salary cap for the 2016 season has been set at $155.27 million per team by the NFL and the NFLPA.
That’s a bump of around $12 million from last year’s limit of $143.3 million, not including the cap space left over last year by teams which could be applied.
It’s a significant bump, but the question the union is going to monitor is whether teams spend the money available, as a number of teams traditionally underspend.
