The NFL salary cap is often a basis for discussion among fans and pundits as it informs teams how much they can spend on players.
As part of the collective bargaining agreement negotiated between the NFL and the NFL Players Association, the salary cap is fixed as a percentage of the league's revenues.
Here's what the salary cap is for the 2023 season and where it is projected to go over the next few years.
The salary cap for the current season is a record $224,800,000, according to Over The Cap.
That's an increase of $16.6 million from 2022, or 7.9%.
As mentioned, the cap is directly tied into league revenues and as such it fluctuates depending on how much money is expected to be brought in across the NFL.
Over The Cap expects the base salary cap to continue to rise over the next three seasons, topping $300 million per team in 2026.2023-09-30T17:42:35Z dg43tfdfdgfd
