NFL SALARY CAP RAISED: Good news for Dallas Cowboys as cap raised higher than expected

It’s no secret the Dallas Cowboys have one of the tightest salary-cap situations in the NFL. Some unexpected relief came from the league.

The NFL set the cap at $133 million, instead of the $126.3 million figure that was originally expected.

At $126.3 million, the Dallas Cowboys were projected to be a league-high $31 million over the cap. March 11 is the deadline for teams to slip under the cap.

While the new projection offers the Cowboys a couple million dollars of relief, it doesn’t save them from having to make tough decisions about key players.

The cap is primed to soar even higher in 2015, after money from the league’s new television deals enter the equation.

The cap rise is good news for both teams seeking cap maneuverability and players who now begin to taste the fruits tied to the collective bargaining agreement signed in 2011. The structure of the CBA and the timing of the television deals sets the players up well from 2015 to 2020.
