NFL SALARY CAP WAS $120M IN 2011, $255M IN 2024!

By Max Harper

The NFL announced Friday the salary cap will settle at $255.4 million, NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero reports.

That represents a record-setting single-year increase.

The 2023 cap came in at $224 million, marking a 13.6% spike.

This provides teams with more flexibility this year and players with increased opportunities.

The 2021 television deals and YouTube TV’s $2 billion NFL Sunday Ticket agreement, along with gambling partnerships and full repayment of COVID-19-related deferrals, collectively produced this spike. While it was rumored the league sought a more gradual rise, NFL-NFLPA negotiations produced this whopping number. As a result, franchise tag numbers and the four-tiered fifth-year option salary structure — for the 2021 first-round contingent — are locked in.

Here are the NFL’s salary caps over the past two CBAs:

  • 2011: $120.4M
  • 2012: $120.6M
  • 2013: $123.6M
  • 2014: $133M
  • 2015: $143.3M
  • 2016: $155.3M
  • 2017: $167M
  • 2018: $177.2M
  • 2019: $188.2M
  • 2020: $198.2M
  • 2021: $182.5M
  • 2022: $208.2M
  • 2023: $224.8M
  • 2024: $255.4M
