The NFL passed another checkpoint on it’s path back to pre-COVID normalcy when the league and the NFLPA agreed to a salary cap ceiling of $208.2 million for the 2022 season, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The cap ceiling was set at $182.5 million for 2021, nearly $30 million less than 2022 which forecasts a steep vertical spike in the coming years. The news come just after a number of teams announced that they would host fans during the upcoming season at full capacity, another healthy sign for the financial side of things.

While it’s not guaranteed the final 2022 cap will be exactly that amount, it does allow teams to start planning for future long-term deals knowing that there will be much more money to potentially work in the coming seasons.

And now for today’s links.
