    COVID impacts on 2021 cap.

    We donít really have a cohesive place to talk about this.

    Current Floor: $180mil
    Potential: $185mil

    DeMaurice Smith told agents that the NFLPA expects 2020 cap number to be pretty close to the $180 million "floor" that's been negotiated, and that the 2022 and 2023 caps could be affected as well by the pandemic-related revenue losses that resulted in this year's cap reduction.

    De Smith is encouraging Agents and Players to collude to prevent salaries from dropping.

    Some players salaries are going to drop regardless. No way everyone can keep their contracts up with much less money going around.

    There's only two ways to get more money in 2021 -- demand more from the owners (given that they received an estimated $500 million to $1 billion in bailout money) or take it from future cap years.

    "Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, itís possible that the number will be more than $180 million ó but the number most likely wonít reach $185 million. The final number for the salary cap, per the source, could land in the range of $182 million to $183 million."

    Good luck to teams like the falcons. 134 million tied up in 6 players. 46 million for the rest of the team.

    I'm sure there are ways to manipulate the cap. I am far from a cap expert tho, just because of the extensions, restructures, roster bonuses, signing bonuses, workout bonuses etc.

    True, but they are 15 million over the cap and only have 39 players signed. That team is going to suck, they might get pick 1 next year.

    We will get the cap soon. Floor is $180mil. Shortfall is going to be made up over a 3 year span.

    It sounds like the shortfall will barely be felt though in the next 3 years.

    Sheesh, over $15 million drop. Really a $25 million drop from what was expected, due to the annual $10 million increase.

    General note: whenever Saints do something their fans in the Twitter comments talk **** about everyone overlooks what a genius Loomis is. Heís not a genius. Anyone with basic knowledge of the cap understands what heís doing and knew he could with every move. We all understand what a contract restructure is. They just keep putting off an eventual financial reset where you take your medicine and deal with the dead money piling up. Such unwarranted arrogance from people who themselves probably donít understand what a contract restructure is.
