Also players base salaries change every year. Dallas might be right at the cap for next year but in two years thay are set to be 20 million under the cap.
you can spread money out any way you want, the base salary isn't the same every year. So we can pay a young big FA low salary this year, and big next year then low again and make it large at the end. Thats our contracts are set in the NFL.
Just look at Brandon Carr's contract
The CBA held some stuff static in the first two years and then I believe it becomes dynamic again. They just signed TV contracts for over $3b AAV.
I am not an economist nor familiar enough with the NFL's machinations but I think their revenue has been increasing and the split is the split.
