NFL salary cap could reach $150M in 2016

Fitzgerald Cecilio - 4E Sports Reporter

New York, NY, United States (4E Sports) - The NFL's salary cap could breach the $150-million barrier by 2016, according to league sources.

This season, the cap is projected to be $133 million, higher than the $123 million last season. That would be the highest cap in league history, surpassing $127.997 million in 2009.

Sources added that cap numbers are expected to continue to climb, surpassing $140 million next year before another significant rise in 2016.

Cash-strapped teams such as the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints would welcome a higher-than-expected cap this season.

Teams must be compliant with the cap by March 11, when the free-agency period begins, and some have started cutting players to create cap savings.
