What was it truly designed for. Some would like to believe parity. Others would like to believe it controls the peak amount of money one player that one position can receive. There is not one contract that is absolutely 100% guaranteed. Everyone can be manipulated. With that being said. Salary cap is and never will be an issue for the franchises. Some people actually believe it was designed to control the amount of money that a player can actually receive as an excuse.I myself have never seen the franchise not sign a player that they wanted because of the Space.
