I recorded these videos back in 2013, but with the NFL offseason here and more and more questions coming my way I thought I would repost them over the next few weeks. This one goes over the basics of the CBA and the salary cap and runs about an hour. The second one, which Ill post again in a day or two, is specific to cap calculations. If anyone wants a copy of the slidedeck Im sure I have it somewhere and can send it. You can also bookmark the video on Youtube and just watch it there when you may have the time to do so since this post will move off the front page soon enough.
