Actually, from what I understand, the owner were originally going to lower the cap this season (as part of the agreement with the NFLPA to sanction the Cowboys and Redskins). The $7m+ raise probably includes whatever money they didn't lower the cap to. This WSJ article says the original cap this year was going to be $113m.

something is wrong with the wording of that article.....everything i have read confirms the 120.6 capfor this year....if the the redskins and Dallas end up paying the total penalty payed 1/2 this year 1/2 next I believe.....you can add 23 mil devided by 30"the rest of the teams" add that number to the 120.6 you should be close something around 122 mil</P>

There's nothing wrong with the wording of the article. The proposed cap this year was going to decrease over 2011. As part of the agreement with the NFLPA for them to sign off on the sanctions they agreed to not decrease the cap, and in fact raised it slightly giving us the $120.6. This is one of the reasons they didn't release the cap numbers until so close to the start of FA. They then further allocated $1.6m in additional cap space to all but a handful of teams that engaged in the same type of behavior as Dallas and Washington, but on a smaller scale.
