Eagles with 18 million?
OK, Cool. So we don't need to cut Haralson in the name of creating cap room.

Not exactly, this still only counts top 51 salaries, so when season begins its 53 man, 8 man p-squad and whoever if any are injured.
Does anyone know when the rule comes into effect on how much cap space you must spend because I thought it was 95% and if that is the case there are teams that still have to spend money to get above the salary floor. I know that this was a big thing for the players to make sure that teams spend the cap space and not horde the revenue away.

I think that it's starts in 2014

Believe it starts in 2013, and it's around 89.5% of the cap, and whatever over the over 89.5% is unused is able to carryover to next season.
Some good info from John Clayton's new Article on Cap Carryover. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8016480/nfl-salary-cap-carryover-rewards-smart-management

He projects some teams cap situations for 2013.

Colts- $43M under before Andrew Luck contract
Bengals- $42M
Browns- $40M
Dolphins- $39M
Texans- $24.8M
Buccaneers- $21M
Titans- $16M
Ravens- $15M

Over wise

Jets- $19M over
Eagles- $16M
Panthers- $16M
Cowboys- $15M
Steelers- $10M

More info from here, http://espn.go.com/blog/afcsouth/post/_/id/37621/a-look-ahead-at-2013-cap-situations

Jaguars- $25M under

Of course there are a bunch of good players unsigned after 2012, especially on the above teams.

Pittsburgh has Mike Wallace, if not taken care of, Antonio Brown and Emanuel Sanders all unsigned.
The game within the game.

Our FOffice has been really good in this area.

Salary cap likely WON'T go up in 2013, and likely not until 2016, and only to $130M, so looks like Owners and League are gonna get what they want.

daniel kaplan ‏@dkaplanSBJ If NFL projections correct, won't be until the 6th yr of new 10-yr CBA that cap exceeds level in last yr (2009) of capped year in old deal

...and staggering of media deals leads to almost no cap increase projection in 1st year of mega new TV deals

Benefits will rise sharply though, but media deals will not spike the cap, not even a bit. Offsets from artificially higher caps in 11-13...

IN SBJ, NFL tells teams to project flat salary caps thru 2015: 2013 ($121 mln); 2014 (122 mln) 2015 (125 mln), and then in 2016 $130 mln.
