The club salary reportedly increased $10 million every year. According to the report , the salary cap is set at $215 million for next year. The salary cap is very standard for the north division club. It is also a highly prolific club which has valued $2.8 billion so far. This season a number of players were released from the side and some new rosters are signing the club. The club priority is to make the past contract extension rather than the new signing. The head coach thinks that it is more profitable to extend the contract with the old player. Because they are more suitable with the team and climate. A newcomer takes time to sit in the team or feel comfortable. In that case the old rosters are more comfortable with the team mate. 

However, due to pandemic COVID-19 the NFL future is uncertain this year but hopefully the darkness will be delighted very soon and the NFL takes it’s color once again and that is the pray of all sports lover people.
