There will be a rash of Madden 21 from Ruify's blog

The notion of Madden 21 coins this hitting the possible floor of 175M seems remote at best based on what I am hearing, but I'd still warning against people projecting the standard feeding frenzy at the onset of the league year that we have become accustomed to. I continue to see ample signs that owners, stung by the pandemic as well as the inability to satisfy their revenue goals in 2020 and perhaps in 2021 as well, will be prepared to hold the lineup longer on paying and take aim at the NFL's middle class, and it could result in an offseason that more closely resembles the drip-by-drip character of baseball offseason, instead of the standard pace of a typical hot stove season.

Even with long-term tv contracts on the horizon, even if an owner was inclined to want to bargain shop in 2021 and string out the market, there are considerable reasons (excuses?) Uncertainty about the degree of fans in the stands in 2021, after using nearly none in 2020, also having a limit stagnant at best and with all the last details of this cap probably not being finalized until shortly before free agency starts next year creates a potential climate for owners to settle back and waitrather than rushing in with both hands, throwing around contracts to fill as many roll holes as possible a month from today.

One year ago, just half of the teams in the NFL really spent up to the salary cap; is there reason, under these circumstances, to project even that number repeating, let alone a spike? Can we not think there would be fiscal motivation to attempt and bide one's time in the hopes that an entire class of players that might normally make $3M-$5M can be had for close to $1M?

There will be a rash of gamers stuck waiting on the very best one-year, prove-it bargain they can muster, I would contend, and some may start grabbing the modest bird in hand earlier instead of later.

The group of teams who appear to be clear spenders is not all that long. The Eagles and Saints have fueled that fire in the past few years, but both are dealing with significant cap difficulties and won't be able to push the market anything close to buy mut coins madden 21 what we have observed previously.
