On Tuesday, us time, according to the NFL Network reporter, the NFL salary space will be increased to $208.2 million in 2022. This is also the maximum amount agreed by the NFL and the players’ Union in May.

The salary space for the 2020 season was $198 million 200 thousand. Due to COVID-19’s reasons, the salary space of the 2021 season did not increase or fall to 182 million 500 thousand dollars, so that most teams had to reconsider the contract problem. Many veteran free agents are also more willing to sign a one-year short contract, so as to make better use of the opportunity of increasing salary space in 2022 season.

Before the outbreak, the salary cap of NFL increased by about $10-12 million jerseys sales a year.

The NFL Network reporter reported the increase of the salary cap a week ago, and the salary cap is expected to continue to rise in 2023.
