Report: Salary cap could be above $123 million

Giants' GM Jerry Reese could have more money to offer players than originally thought - Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The 2013 NFL salary cap might be more generous than originally anticipated.

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the salary cap for 2013, originally expected to be somewhere around $121 million, could actually exceed $123 million.

Right now, the New York Giants have approximately $115.2 million committed against the cap for 2013.

There has, as we know, been a great deal of angst in the fan base about the Giants' salary cap situation. There has also been much speculation about the futures of highly-paid veterans David Diehl and Corey Webster.

While both players could still find themselves without a job at some point, perhaps the Giants are waiting until they know exactly what the cap number is, and what contracts (like Eli Manning's $20.35 million deal) they might be able to restructure before jettisoning more players.

Either way, if the cap does move up to $123 million or more that is good news for both players looking to get paid and teams looking for salary cap room to supplement their rosters.
