Huge salary cap spike expected for 2021?

Recommended Posts

 

It would explain why Ballard is splurging so much this year. It also means we can re-sign all of our starters including T.Y

I'm not sure that's a huge spike though.  I googled it and the current cap is 198 M.  So 200 M is just a small increase.

 

I would also be careful as to thinking that means that re-signing all the starters is easy.  If the cap goes up the player's pay demands will go up.  

 

However it does mean that what looks like a big payday today starts to look like a team friendly contract in a few years.

theres multiple reports that next year the cap goes to 240 million. that's a pretty large increase.  Also reports are the cap is about 198 million this year. meaning meaning IF it jumps to 240 million for 2021, thats a 42 million dollar increase.

Oh sorry I wasn't thinking.  For some reason I thought 2021 was 2 years from now.  

 

That would be significant.

 

None the less, it only helps if we sign extensions and contracts this year before the new cap is announced.  Because after it's announced players and agents are going to be making salary demands based upon the new cap number.

So I'm guessing/hope that Ballard will be talking to Mack and Kelly's reps after the draft about signing a long term deal.  

 

Could also try to get Hooker locked in even though we have a 5 year option on him.

I would bet that the agents are well aware of the likelihood of the increase in future cap figures and are already taking that into consideration when negotiating player contracts.

Just guessing that gate receipts/live attendance will drop significantly. Even with over 50% of revenue coming from tv, attendance would impact overall revenue. 
 

FYI, I don’t have the revenue stream numbers. Just did a quick search.

Gates don't account for much at all when it comes to paying player salaries.  Not that decreasing ticket revenue will be a help, of course.

The gate receipts are more about paying for the building, taxes, utilities and drawing people in for the local businesses.

This is what I’m thinking. We’ve just closed the world to business with no end date known yet and we are thinking the cap number couldn’t drastically go up? It is also just as conceivable that cap stays flat or goes down for a period of time in an unknown financial world. It’s one thing to get players back on the field, it’s another to say getting the financial world back up and running again. Time will tell.

    • Who is your darkhorse player to have a bigger impact then expected? I'm gonna go with Zach Pascal. I feel like he's the last WR being mentioned after Hilton Pittman and Campbell and I'm not sure why when he was basically our passing game for most of the season.
    • Trading back 4 spots or whatever it was yielded a great return for the Colts. Especially given Nelson was their guy all along. That move went a long way re-stocking the roster.
    • This pipeline runs oneway. Colts to Jets. The Jets have signed five previous Colt players who were free agents at the time (Pierre Desir, Josh Andrews, Matthias Farley, Jonotthan Harrison, and Benjamin Ijalan). The Jets claimed two Colts players off waivers (Ross Travis, Tarell Basham). The Colts traded four players to the Jets. Three for draft picks (Quincy Wilson, Nate Hairston, and Henry Anderson), while only one was for another player (Thomas Hennessy). And finally, the Colts traded a single draft pick for four Jet's draft picks.   By the way that one draft pick, which the Jets used on Sam Darnold, resulted in the Colts drafting  Quenton Nelson, Braden Smith, Kemoko Turay, Jordan Wilkins, and Rock Ya-Sin, I believe.
    • I have LeBron 4th that is out of the players I have seen by my eye test and based on stats and championships as well. I have only been watching since 1977 so guys like Wilt and Russell do not factor in. My top 5 is: 1. Michael Jordan 2. Magic Johnson 3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 4. LeBron is here IMO 5. Kobe Bryant 6. Larry Bird 7. Shaq O'Neal -Magic has to be #2 because not only was he more efficient than LeBron, his teams even more Championships 5-3. Magic was more clutch than LeBron, shot a better FG%, FT%, and is the all-time leader in Assist average with 11.2 per season. Magic also won Finals MVP as a rookie at 20 years old. He basically scored 20 points a night over his career too. Kareem won 6 Championships and 6 League MVP's, and is all-time leading scorer in NBA history, reason why I put Magic over him is because IMO Magic was the better player on most of the Lakers teams. LeBron deserves 4th because IMO he has been the best player of this generation like Kareem was in the 70's. Magic was in the 80's, and Jordan was in the 90's. Statistically LeBron may pass Kareem in scoring and LeBron has 4 League MVP's and 3 Championships. It is just different today though, players want to form super teams, LeBron didn't win a Championship until he joined Wade and Bosh in Miami. He even made a comment he would love to play with Jordan. He should've said he would want to beat Jordan. Any team LeBron is on will improve their win total by 12-15 games so he is great. When it comes to LeBron, Kobe, Bird, and Shaq it is a coin flip basically and all debatable. I could give a damn what ESPN says saying LeBron is #2, he isn't, Magic is and I could bring a ton of debate regarding that as posted above.
