Arizona Cardinals in line for payday thanks to NFL teams relocating

A little but if money is coming the Arizona Cardinals way.

The NFL understands more than anything else, how to make money.

That is evident by the growth in overall capital the NFL and the owners have, but as well as the rapid increase in salary cap the last five years.

They even know how to make money on their own moving from city to city.

From SB Nation's Niners Nation:

"ESPN’s Darren Rovell is reporting that the 29 NFL teams not moving will each receive a gross total of $55.2 million over the next 11 years. Each team will pay taxes on it like normal revenue, but they will not have to share the money with the players as part of the revenue sharing pot."

That means the Arizona Cardinals will be pulling in an additional $5 million a year the next 11 years with none of that going towards the players, coaches or any other revenue.

If you were the Arizona Cardinals, wouldn't putting that money back into the fans be great? Maybe lowering the price of concessions?

Maybe opening up more free parking?

What do you think?
