Salary cap will increase in 2009

The Colts just got an extra $4 million dollars in cap space:

Because teams didn’t spend as much as they were supposed to under the collective bargaining agreement the past three years, teams were notified Wednesday that the salary cap will increase over $4 million to $127 million for this coming year, according to sources with two NFL teams. The collective bargaining agreement calls for cap adjustment down if teams spend over the cap in cash and adjustment up if they don’t spend up to the cap.

Does this mean the Colts will try and sign Albert Haynesworth? No. Does it give them more to negotiate with when it comes to re-signing Jeff Saturday? Oh yes.
