US time on Tuesday, according to NFL Network reporters, the 2022 season NFL salary space will increase to 208.2 million US dollars. This is also the largest amount agreed by the NFL and the Players Union in May.
The salary space for the 2020 season is 198.2 million U.S. dollars. Due to the new crown epidemic, the salary space for the 2021 season will not increase but will drop to 182.5 million U.S. dollars. Most teams have to deal with contract issues again. Many veteran free agents are also more willing to sign a one-year short contract, so that they can make better use of the opportunity of increased salary space in the 2022 season.
Before the epidemic, the NFL’s salary cap increased by approximately $10-12 million per year.
NFL Network reporters had reported the increase in the salary cap a week ago, and the salary cap is expected to continue to rise in 2023.
