The NFL has notified clubs that the salary cap for 2014 will be $133 million, NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Friday.
That is an increase of nearly $10 million per team over 2013.
The cap is primed to soar even higher in 2015, after money from the league's new television deals enter the equation.
The cap rise is good news for both teams seeking cap maneuverability and players who now begin to taste the fruits tied to the collective bargaining agreement signed in 2011. According to Breer, the structure of the CBA and the timing of the television deals sets the players up well from 2015 to 2020.
That time is almost upon us.
