Clayton’s Schooled: Salary Cap Analysis with Andrew Brandt

Mar 8, 2018, 11:01 AM | Updated: 11:03 am

The salary cap number was announced this week: $177.2 million. And teams have to be under the cap by March 14.

On SCHOOLED with the Professor, we talk to cap expert Andrew Brandt. When the salary cap started, Brandt was an agent. He then spent almost a decade as the Green Bay Packers’ capologist and now writes about the salary cap for MMQB and The Athletic.

We go through the history of the salary cap and talk about how it has evolved. Brandt talks about how the league changed for negotiations in 2011, when the NFL and NFLPA agreed to have a lower paying wage pool for rookies.
