Al Davis either got lucky or is not senile yet... spent like a drunken sailor to keep his guys & won't be restricted to spend even more. He figures what the hey - he's loaded, not long for the world & can't take it with him. Look for a front-loaded deal to keep Asomugha coming next....

NFL labor: Next season would be played without salary cap if lockout is lifted

Sources from throughout the sport on both sides of the dispute said over the weekend that the system the league would enact at that point would be very likely to be the same system that was in effect last season, when there was no salary cap in the final year of the just-expired labor agreement between the NFL and the players’ union.

That would mean there would be no player-payroll maximum or minimum for NFL teams. Players with expired contracts would need six years of NFL service time to be eligible for unrestricted free agency, rather than the four seasons required when the salary cap system was in effect; players with expired contracts and three to five seasons of NFL experience would be restricted free agents. Each team would have an extra transition-player tag, in addition to the one franchise-player or transition-player designation allowed per club under the salary cap system, to restrict players’ movement in free agency, and there would be limits on the free agent activity of last season’s final eight playoff teams.

The reason that system would be used, sources said, is that it might have a better chance of withstanding an antitrust challenge by the players, given that the union previously agreed to those rules for an uncapped year in collective bargaining. Attorneys for the players’ side have said they would challenge in court any rules put in place by the league if the lockout is lifted.

I'm not sure making it rain on dem hoes when you're one if the (if not THE) least profitable team is a smart idea.

After several years of losing seasons, I wouldn't be sure about that.

Also they have a socialist style system where nobody loses in the NFL money wise and I think it is divided up pretty equal.
