NFLPA's Atallah: Performance-Based Checks For '13 To Be Deferred
Published March 7, 2013
Atallah said the deferment of the performance pay was a small part of the reason for the increase. The main reason the cap went up is NFL revenues went up, he said. The NFLPA first told agents about the deferral of the '13 performance-based pay at the agent meeting during the NFL Combine. Some agents privately expressed concern about the payments being deferred. Agents said the deferral could potentially adversely impact some of the lowest-paid players in the league. Atallah said, "Players are going to earn the money. It is just going to be deferred."
