Colts as a model for the salary cap

John Clayton does a nice job summarizing the NFL’s need for a salary cap. He uses the Colts as a prime example of how to live well under the camp. It’s amazing how close the owners came to life without one. Even though the Colts are the top spending team in the NFL, I don’t think that would be true without the cap. If anyone thinks the Redskins or Cowboys wouldn’t be jacking up the price of players far beyond what Jimmy Irsay could pay for, they are dreaming. The cap keeps us competitive and the league balanced.
