This is where the numbers stand as of today:Read more: http://aol.sportingnews.com/nfl/stor...#ixzz1Py3V9CR2
Players will receive 48 percent of all revenues, without the owners taking a $1 billion cut off the top of a $9 billion revenue model. The players' share will never dip below 46.5 percent. Under the old CBA, the players received 60 percent, not including a $1 billion "expense credit" for the owners off the top.
Here's the math:
Under this CBA, owners payout 48% of $9Bill= $4.32Bill...divided by 32 teams equals a salary cap of $135M per team.
Under the old CBA, the owners took $1B off the top leaving a pool of $8B x 60%= $4.8B...divided by 32 teams= salary cap of $150M.
So each team is saving $15M per year under this plan. Will that be enough for the owners? I also have read that the salary floor will be quite high, like maybe 90% of the cap which will piss off owners like Mike Brown
