the 208.2 is the  max the cap can be for 2022.

it likely will be lower depending on attendance

to get the number that high, the lost $4 bil has to be spread over more years than the original plan of 3

 

They have that massive new TV contract that will kick in for 2023. Of which I'm sure, a good portion of the recoup will come from that.

And that includes $36MM for Josh/Edmunds 5th year deals so already most of the way home on extensions.

 

Morse and Star combine for another $20MM so seems like they're in good shape.  We just need some of those young pass rushers to start flourishing.

Ian Rapaport and Tom Pelissario confirming:
 

NFL's salary cap expected to hit $208M in 2022
 

The NFL's salary cap is set to get back on track in 2022 -- and spending should be back as well, with another anticipated jump in the cap for 2023.
 

Sources say next season's cap is expected to reach the $208.2 million maximum agreed upon by the NFL and NFL Players Association in May. The final number has not been officially announced, but it's expected to be revealed at the NFL's annual labor seminar next week.
 

The salary cap this season is $182.5 million -- down from $198.2 million in 2020, but much higher than it would've been had the league and union not agreed in August 2020 to spread an anticipated multibillion-dollar revenue shortfall from the COVID-19 pandemic over several years. Players are still "paying back" what amounted to a low-interest loan that allowed players to continue making full salaries and bonuses in 2020 despite empty stadiums, and the agreement to set a ceiling on the 2022 cap expedited that repayment process.

Every free agent that took a 2021 one year deal...

We'll see if the spray and pray approach worked. I have my doubts
