SalaryCapCrunch.com has several goals. First, we seek to clarify and explain the key provisions of the NFL collective bargaining agreement with a specific focus on the rules related to the salary cap, free agency, rookie contracts and other matters that address player movement and contracts.

Additionally, we will be exploring new ways to analyze player contracts and the salary cap which will help fans of the NFL, media members, and front office employees improve their analysis of these matters. Value/Cap Ratio (VCR)  is the first statistic that combines player contributions and player costs to provide a robust analysis of the “return on investment” that a team is receives from a given player.

As we will continually be developing new ideas, make sure to stay up to date by subscribing to the site or following us on Twitter. With us, you will always be able to crunch the competition.
