NFL salary cap takes a gigantic leap in 2023 I The Rush

The NFL’s salary cap climbs to $224.8 million in 2023, seemingly contradicting a claim made by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on the Pat McAfee show last week. The injury suffered by 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy in the NFC Championship Game is significant and will require surgery and Rush host Minty Bets is making the case for the Pro Bowl Game flag football contest.

MINTY BETS: There’s good news on the horizon for NFL team owners.

– What’s new?

MINTY BETS: The NFL’s salary cap increases to $224.8 million for the 2023 season. That’s a $16.6 million increase from the current season’s cap. Weird because just a week ago Aaron Rodgers had some thoughts on the ability of NFL teams to pay mega contracts like his, which are worth around $60 million in 2023.

AARON RODGERS: I think there are a lot of teams because of COVID that are tied down.

PARIS MINT: OK. So it hasn’t aged well. I mean, right now the cheapest Super Bowl ticket on sale on TickPick is just under $6,000.

– You think money grows on trees.

MINTY BETS: Apparently someone does. But ticket sales are a drop in the bucket compared to broadcast rights. Remember, Google is about to start paying $2.5 billion a year to host NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube TV.

– How much will it cost me?

MINTY BETS: Unfortunately for Brock Purdy, he will be watching the Super Bowl from home this year after the 49ers were beaten by the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. Purdy injured his elbow in the first half. And it turns out it’s “Purdy” bad.

– I’m really embarrassed for you.

MINTY BETS: The Niners’ third string/starting quarterback has reportedly suffered a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow and will need surgery.

– Ouch.

MINTY BETS: Now the long road to the Super Bowl begins as we have to wait a scary two weeks to watch the Chiefs and Eagles face off in Arizona. Luckily we have the Pro Bowl games to hold us back.

– Now that’s funny.

MINTY BETS: Hey, I’m a Las Vegas resident who’s super excited to welcome the top NFL players to my hometown to play flag football. I am also a gambler. And I put my money on this flag football game that got the highest Pro Bowl TV ratings in 10 years. You heard it here the first time.
