The NFL raised the salary cap yet once again and I for one think that this is a good thing for the Cardinals. This is going to help out the Cardinals` front office with getting the last couple of pieces the team needs. As we all know, the Cardinals don`t get any respect form the league and this increase will make them a dominate force and with them already being playoff ready, this will help to put them over the top.

Some people might complain about the cap being raised over and over again. I say, if players are going to be asking for more and more money every year then the cap needs to keep being raised. If your one of the few who does`nt like this, then you need to start complaining to the NFL. Unless the NFL starts putting a cap on how much a player can make in a year, like rookie contracts now days, the cap needs to keep being raised.

    The cap is related to a percentage of total income brought in by the NFL per the bargaining agreement. I think it is 48% to the players and with upcoming 2015 TV contracts it is supposed to jump in the next few years as well. The NFL does not arbitrarily raise and lower the amount.
