Sources: NFL, players union agree to 2016 salary cap of over $155M

The NFL and the Players Association have agreed that the per-team salary cap for the 2016 season will be slightly above $155 million, league sources told ESPN's Ed Werder.

The 2015 salary cap was set at $143.28 million, meaning this would be the third consecutive season that the cap has increased by at least $10 million.

Sources told ESPN in December that league officials informed teams that the cap would be between $150 million and $153.4 million.
