No Hard Salary Cap In The First Year Of The New CBA?

While I was cobbling together today's Starting Lineup for SB Nation Minnesota, I noticed this posting on the Twitter from Tom Pelissero of ESPN 1500.

Interesting rumor passed along by @RavensInsider that hard cap might not be imposed in 1st year of labor deal. Would avoid cap casualties.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply


In a way, I suppose that this makes sense. There are still going to be some veterans that are going to get cut regardless of whether there's a salary cap or not. (Yes, Madieu Williams, I'm looking at you here, regardless of how awesome you are off the field.) But given the relatively little time that teams will have between the ratification of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement that will (hopefully) take place today and the start of Training Camps and everything else, it might help to make things a bit easier on teams like the Vikings, who would have had some pretty tough decisions to make.

Now, I'm not sure if this means that there isn't going to be any cap at all, similar to 2010, or if there's going to be some kind of a "soft cap," which is what the NBA currently has and is pretty much a complete joke.
