NFLPA Offers To Reduce NFL Salary Cap To Aid Stadium Efforts

The NFLPA “has offered to reduce the league’s salary cap by $800[M] over the first 15 years” of a new Giants-Jets stadium “in a move that could finally lead to the go-ahead” for the facility, according to Kaplan & Mullen of SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL. The union “is willing to make the move because the new stadium is projected to generate so much revenue that the cap would increase on average $2[M] annually, or $960[M] total across the league over 15 years even after the reduction.” NFLPA Exec Dir Gene Upshaw: “We have to build a stadium in New York, there is no doubt about it. We are willing to do our part” (SBJ, 12/4 issue).
