    I suppose management could ask Rivers and Weddle to restructure their deals to free up a little more room under the cap. It might be enough to allow them to keep some of their free agents and all add a couple of impact free agents as well.

    it was supposed to be a $5M inflation to $125M.. That $5M could make all the difference now

    As expected, cap comes in at $120.6 million

    Unexpectedly, the salary cap figure for 2012 was finalized a day early. It’s the only thing “early” about the process this year.

    As expected, the number will be $120.6 million. (Jay Glazer of FOX reported that number Saturday night.)

    It’s only a slight increase from last season’s limit of $120.375 million. The cap is expected to spike in 2014, when the new TV money kicks in.

    For now, teams will have to contend with something that they previously haven’t had to confront during the free-agency era: a flat cap.

    It would, but we didn't get it....... essentially a flat-cap this year.
