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.
