NFL | Salary cap deadline pushed back two hours
Wed, 8 Mar 2006 15:33:43 -0800

NFL | More on owner's meeting
Wed, 8 Mar 2006 15:28:23 -0800

ESPN.com's John Clayton reports, as noted earlier, NFL owners are studying at least four different revenue plans. There is a Pittsburgh model being pushed by Dan and Art Rooney of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The plan would have each team put 25 percent of local revenues into a pool that would be distributed to teams in the lower end of the revenue streams. There is a New England Patriots/New York Jets model that expands on an already existing local revenue sharing plan. Currently, $40 million of local revenue is being shared. The Patriots/Jets model expands that number significantly. At this point no system has the 24 votes needed to pass.

Hopefully this means they're close.


Although I'm sure it's just another desperate attempt to get something done.

Let's just push it back to September. Now the owners don't know what they want to do...

In two hours they'll push it back another hour, an hour after that they'll push it back another 30 minutes, then 15 more minutes, then 5 more minutes....

This is wearing me down. I guess I should just not watch for updates but it's hard not to when you care about the outcome.

I swear I am not staying up late tonight to find out it's been pushed back 3 more days like I did the other night.

ESPN SportsCenter reported that the salary cap was moved to 11p.m. ET. The Owners agreement for the new CBA will still be at 8:00 ET/7:00 CT. So about a half-hour to go.

In the meantime, we have the Eagles signing Barber, and the Rams signing Glover.

Shouldn't they also have pushed back the begining of the signings along with the cuts?

Is this just Tags way of taking headlines from March Madness?

I think that the contracts for the EVENTUAL free agents run out on Thursday, opening free agency. The guys already released and on the waiver can be signed. At least, that's my theory....

Guys who are cut and waived can immediately begin to sign with new teams
