Quote of the Day

I’m very curious to see if the players stick together, whether they support Gene Upshaw, whether they feel he’s really going to fight for them in this or whether they feel he’s going to cave to the owners."

--Washington Post reporter Ivan Carter, on future NFL CBA negotiations ("Washington Post Live,” CSN, 5/20).

    NFL Could Face Season
    Without Salary Cap In 2010
    More than 24 hours after the NFL decided to opt out of the current CBA, all eyes are focusing on the move's ramifications, specifically the potential for a 2010 season without a salary cap. While the likelihood of a work stoppage is low -- NFLPA boss Gene Upshaw said, “Don’t worry. It’ll get done” -- playing without a cap is a distinct possibility. Guidelines are in place to make sure the league does not become the “wild, wild West." However, the effects are already being felt -- the Cowboys rush to sign Marion Barber and Terence Newman to long-term extensions yesterday, and Arthur Blank says the Falcons would not have been able to sign Matt Ryan to his record contract “if we didn’t get this deal done" by Tuesday at 4:00pm. Other news coming from the Owners meetings: as expected, Indianapolis is awarded the 2012 Super Bowl.
