NFL raises 2021 salary cap floor; what it means for Titans
The NFL has actually sent out a memo to groups alerting them that the 2021 income cap flooring has actually been raised from the initial mark of $175 million to $180 million.
Naturally, the decrease in the income cap is an outcome of lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 income cap stood at $198.2 million, so there stands to be a substantial reduction for the coming project.
Previously this month, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the belief is the last income cap figure is set to be someplace in between $180 to $181 million, and kept in mind the choice will be boiling down next month.
