NFLPA Reminds Player Agents Of "Soft Cap" Under Terms Of New CBA
Published July 27, 2011
The memo noted that NFL clubs can continue to use methods used in the past to exceed the salary cap in cash spent, including by negotiating signing bonuses as opposed to salary.

"These rules therefore give NFL clubs the ability to sign the players they want even though they may only have a limited amount of salary cap room left," the memo concluded.
