    I've always wondered, what happens if a team isn't under the cap?

    severe penalties that we don't want. From an old article:

    What happens if a team doesn't comply with the salary cap?

    No team has ever gone blatantly over the salary cap, so this is a bit of an unknown. However, teams have been fined in the past for attempts to circumvent the cap. ESPN.com contributor and former Miami Dolphins GM Rick Spielman says NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue has wide latitude in fining teams -- and even individual team executives -- or stripping draft picks for failure to comply with the salary cap.

    I don't even know how that would be possible, honestly. That would completely blow up the entire league schedule.

    Yes, but I'd be lying if I said it wouldn't be hilarious to see (not happening to us of course). I don't think I've ever seen it happen but I remember reading something to this effect

    Oh there would be a fine, but what hurts is when they start taking away draft picks. THAT'S what stops you from doing it

    A payroll over $200M, no draft picks and teams full of superstars rarely win.

    Factor in that such behavior would spike player prices, and no owner wants that.
