    Next March is a deadline they are aiming for which is pretty important. Life without a salary cap for a year? Yikes, we'd "get nothing and like it"!!

    ...Then I think it will be addressed sooner than later. (and I agree with you completely).
    I agree that the issue will be dealt with sooner. I think of the situation when Troy signed his extention. He was the highest paid safty until the rookie Landry signed a week or two later. Another thought, sometimes the rookie deals may drive up some of the veteran's salaries. This in turn may cause incidents with agents (who I think may be the biggest culprits) and players like Chad Johnson or Urlacher who feel like they are being under paid.

    I bet the issue of cap-hits also gets addressed. It is a huge mess, and forces teams to keep players who want out, or aren't worth the money. I think it was Jimmy Johnson who said he had a "capologist". What a joke.
