I say between 130M-150M. Then in 2014, it goes up for sure to 150-160M.
I dont know the exact system, as they dont release that formula publicly, but it has to do with the new TV deal. Plus in 2013 and beyond there will be a league wide spending minimum, 99% as a league, and 93% for each team. If not 99% combined, then all teams will have to spend 99% of the cap.
Also with the low cap it brings down the franchise numbers. They now go by average of the last 5 franchise numbers. So for 2012, it goes off of 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. RFA tenders go up by like 5%, or more if the cap increases more.
Reasoning we put the rest of Willis' signing bonus pro-ration into 2012 is to give as much cap space for 2013 and beyond.
On behalf of everyone who reads this thank you.
I can imagine Baalke doing a top deal like that for a WR, 5mil this year that gets bumped to 8-9 mil next year based on performances.
