However....you are not going to see the actual salary cap shrink much, if at all.
Don't fool yourself on the $20 dollar hot dog to 'support these salaries'. The owners claim they are not making much money, but they are all unwilling to open their books for everyone to see. They are making money hand over fist....the NFL has never been more popular despite a decline in attendance in some stadiums....people simply have more ways to watch their team these days.
The owners are in a battle with the players over the % of revenue that should go to the players, which determines the salary cap. Everyone outside of the high rookie draft picks deserve what they are making. The players will budge on that, but not much else.
