NFL Salary Cap Expected to Rise to $130 Million: Good and Bad for the Jets

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL's salary cap is expected to rise to $130 million in 2014.

Several executives from the NFL believe the salary cap will jump from $123 million in 2013 to around $130 million in 2014 for a five-percent increase, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday. The executives are working off the projected $130 million when organizing their offseason plans. ESPN first reported the news.

The hike should take pressure off some teams sitting near the cap bubble. The increase in the cap is larger what most projected -- around $126.3 million.

This has its good points and its bad points. The Jets will now have a little more money to spend than anticipated. The rest of the league will have exactly as much.

I don't think this impacts the Jets as much as it does teams strapped for cap space. The Jets would have a lot of cap room no matter what. This might mean an extra role player, however, which could prove helpful.
