    .....A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the league and the NFLPA currently are “scrambling” to increase the tentative number.

    The problem arises from two realities. Under the new CBA, players receive a finite number (47 percent of specifically defined revenues) to cover both salaries and benefits. But the costs of the benefits have increased, driving more of the allocation away from salaries.

    And so, for roughly a week, the NFLPA has been trying to re-do the numbers in order to trim back the benefit costs and in turn drive up the salary cap.......

    Scrambling? Sounds like they need better accountants
