NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters (per Kyle Meinke) on Wednesday that the 2017 salary cap could go up by as much as $15 million per team. A few months ago, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reported that NFL teams were informed that the 2017 cap is expected to be between $166 million – $170 million, which would be an increase of $10.73 million – $15 million, so it appears as though the final figure could be closer to the high end of the early projections. It’s worth mentioning that the first figures released, particularly from the NFL, are typically low estimates and the possibility exists that the cap could climb even higher.
