NFL general managers and coaches now have a little more certainty at their disposal as they prepare for free agency.

The NFL salary cap for the 2017 league year has been set at $167 million, a league official told NFL Network's Judy Battista on Wednesday.

The figure represents a more than $12 million raise over last year's cap figure on $155.27 million. Since 2012, the cap has been increased by about $47 million. It marks the fourth straight year the cap has gone up by more than $10 million over the previous year.

Most NFL teams are heading into free agency with ample cap space. With free agency set to begin March 9, there could be plenty of big deals for a free agency group that isn't as packed with as much star power as in seasons past.
