With less than two weeks until the start of training camp, it’s clear that this year’s $64 million salary cap won’t be the financial sharknado that many feared.
Despite the sharp reduction from last year’s prorated $70.2 million ceiling, most clubs appear to be in fair shape. A bit shorter on breathing room than they’d like, maybe, but they’ll get in under the bar. And while some perfectly serviceable veterans still find themselves on the outside looking in, that would have been the case no matter where the cap was set.
Not every team is set to be in compliance, though. Six are believed to be over the $64 million limit. But even with some tough decisions looming, it seems that cap space hell isn’t as bad as it’s cracked up to be.
