NFL salary cap to be a reported $130 million in 2014

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

This is about $4 million higher than earlier projections.

Adam Schefter reported on Thursday that the NFL salary cap will be a projected $130 million for the 2014 season. In 2013 it was $123 million and most expected this coming season to be relatively flat, perhaps increasing to $126 million.

The added revenue was likely the result of the league selling half their Thursday Night Football slate to CBS. It represents an additional $128 million in revenue for the league.

This addition gives the Arizona Cardinals, and all other teams, approximately $4 million more to use. Fox Sports Radio reporter and broadcaster Mike Jurecki shared some cap numbers regarding the Cards.

The added cap space, in addition to other potential money-saving moves like cutting guard Daryn Colledge or linebacker Jasper Brinkley, could give the Cardinals plenty of space to re-sign Karlos Dansby and also add a significant free agent tackle to improve the offensive line, or perhaps get Patrick Peterson signed to a contract extension.
