    The Uncapped Year's Effect on This Year's NFL Salary Cap

    This week in Sports Illustrated, Jim Trotter penned an article called "Market Forces" discussing how the economy is changing how teams are run and how the franchise tag may be applied differently this year (it was, as you can see by the huge list of tagged players).
    He also discusses how "second tier" free agents like Derrick Dockery and Langston Walker got some pretty big contracts a few years ago, while last year saw Donte' Stallworth, Drayton Florence, and Jerry Porter all inked huge deals while being highly unproven commodities.
    Due to the current Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), these deals may be harder to come by for these types of players.
    Because 2009 is the last capped year under the current CBA, any cap hit a team would normally have pushed to the next year must be accounted for this year, making the salary cap game ever the more interesting.
    Teams will have a lot less money than their current cap space dictates.

    I need to bone up on this crap, however, it makes my head hurt..... ;D

    By the way.........

    A big part of many players' contracts are incentives based on performance or playing time.
    Justed wanted to point that out for those of you who seem to think it isn't all about the money or that players won't want to play in "Meaningless" games..... ;D

    So, I haven't read much about this.
    Does this mean the NFL is going the MLB route where the big market teams can just buy up the best players, like the Yankmes do in MLB?
    Personally, I think the salary cap was one of the best things to happen to the NFL.

    “I don’t believe that will be the case,” Goodell said, according to Sean Leahy of USA Today.

    An uncapped year can be avoided only if the two sides finalize a new deal by the start of the 2010 league year.

    I've always gotten a kick out of this because it's complete bunk.
    Both sides don't need to agree on anything.
    The only agreement that needs to be made is between the owners of the teams.
    If all the owners agree that the spending limit is X... the players can't really do squat about it.
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.
