I just don't think $175 million is possible. 14 teams already have more than $175 million committed for 2021.

The Cowboys are the closest team to the 175million and under, at 173. They don't have Dak signed.

The Titans are the next closest at 172. They only have 33 players signed through 2021.

The 49ers are the next closest at 168. They only have 37 players through 2021, and don't have a single CB.

 

Going to $175 absolutely GUTS every team. The NFLPA is going to flip their **** when 2/3 of veterans get cut in order to just fill rosters up to 53 players and keep it under $175, and that says nothing about Free Agents just not getting signed. 

 

Yeah there's just no way 175 is going to happen. Nobody wants that.

Well for a start, its very unlikely we sign all 4.   If we get Bakh and Jones signed that would be a win and think that's the most likely.

If the cap is $175 next year in 2021 and then goes up to $225 in 2022, do you think the NFL will try to work around this issue by allowing teams to "borrow" against the cap in 2022?  Example, Team A has $200 million in payroll, so they borrow $25 million from 2022's cap to increase their cap in 2021 to $200 million.  Their maximum cap permitted in 2022 would then be reduced by $25 million to $200 million.  Teams would then go back to the normal cap rules in 2023.

This type of approach would work for many teams and for many players whose contracts would ordinarily be terminated due to the reduced cap.  It might also prevent salary's from going downward for a year (affecting primarily players whose contracts unfortunately expire at the end of 2020 might be facing).  So my sense is that the players union would approve of this approach.  A few teams that are way under the cap next year would protest this move, but I think it would take just 3/4 of the owners to approve such a move.
