The NFL has set the salary cap for the 2013 season.

While it’s not flat, compared to 2012, it isn’t moving up much.

Ian Rapoport of reports that clubs have been informed by the league that the cap will be set at $123 million this year. That is a bump of $2.4 million from the $120.6 million it was at in 2012.

This is why many teams are scrambling to restructure player contracts and push cap issues for 2013 into future seasons.
