Source: Cap will be north of $122 million | ProFootballTalk
Though the salary cap won’t be spiking this year (and, despite the looming impact of the new TV deals, in any year), this year’s smoothing will be a little less smooth that previously believed. A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the team-by-team spending limit will exceed $122 million in 2013.

In short, despite those tremendous outfits, he was nearly impossible to root for.
