About This Site

I’ve been a serious football fan for years, but a nerd for my whole life. When other sites on the web published stories about football contracts and their nuances, it appealed to my inner nerd and I really appreciated the creative ways in which contracts were structured and re-structured to fall within the rules of the NFL CBA. When that CBA went out the window and led to a lockout in 2011, I watched very closely, and when the new CBA was released, I read it very closely. The result is what you find on this site.

While talking about football and sports in general with a friend, he mentioned that NBA fans everywhere are familiar with Larry Coon’s NBA CBA FAQ, but that there didn’t seem to be any well-known, well-written, complete NFL Cap site out there. He suggested that I write it, and indeed that is what I have tried to do.

It’s still a work in progress; If there is anything that could be written more effectively, anything I’ve forgotten, or any question that can be answered, please do not hesitate to let me know. I don’t pretend to know everything. My goal for this site is to make it a useful tool for anyone out there that shares my (our) interest in this stuff.
