Tackling What The NFL's 2021 $182.5 Million Salary Cap Truly Means

The reality is that the situation could have been far worse than it is for NFL players entering into free agency before the start of the 2021 NFL season. That said, it is not an easy pill to swallow for players and their agents, who have taken it for granted that the salary cap would rise on an annual basis.
