The NFL’s salary cap is expected to hit $208.2 million in 2022, bringing the league back from reductions created by the COVID-19 pandemic, per reports.

NFL Network detailed the figure that was agreed upon by the NFL and the NFL Players Association in May and is expected to be made official next week at the league’s labor seminar.

Teams are playing this season under a salary cap of $182.5 million, a reduction from $198.2 million in 2020, as part of an agreement to help spread a revenue shortfall from pandemic-related losses over multiple years.
