Falcons are $2.6 million under cap
Pro Football Talk reports that the Falcons are $2.6 million under the projected 2011 salary cap of $120.4 million. Teams will be required to have the Top 51 players on their roster fit under the salary cap by the first day of the league year. That day is projected to be tomorrow if the players vote to ratify the new Collective Bargaining Agreement today, as most expect. Ratification will also allow all of the veteran free agents that have signed deals in the past week to also begin practicing.
