Reports: NFL, NFLPA agree to $208.2M salary-cap ceiling in 2022

The NFL and NFL Players Association have agreed to set a salary-cap ceiling of $208.2 million for 2022, according to multiple reports Wednesday.

The NFL salary cap dropped to $182.5 million for 2021 due to revenue shortfalls related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the 2020 season. If the 2022 cap were to reach the new limit, it would mark a 14-percent increase over the 2021 season and also represent a new high for the league. The cap for the 2020 season was $198.2 million.

Currently, there is not an agreed upon cap floor and the final salary cap won’t be set until February. That final figure could land below $208.2 million depending on revenue projections; however, if it exceeds that number, any excess would go toward paying back the $17 million in player benefits that were canceled last season.
