NFL general managers and coaches now have a little more certainty at their disposal as they prepare for free agency.

The NFL salary cap for the 2017 league year has been set at $167 million, a league official told NFL Network’s Judy Battista on Wednesday.

The figure represents a more than $12 million raise over last year’s cap figure on $155.27 million. Since 2012, the cap has been increased by about $47 million.

Most NFL teams are heading into free agency with ample cap space this season. With free agency set to begin March 9, there could be plenty of big deals for a free agency group that isn’t as packed with as much star power as in seasons past.
