A league that’s been trying to create an incentive to stay in the business while also being able to focus on its core mission to be the premier professional sports league in the world will start to pay its players based on what they make and what they buy, starting in 2020, league officials said Wednesday.
The league is expected to announce the new rule on Thursday.
The league and teams have not yet announced the specific number of teams that will be affected, but officials said it will be roughly 10 percent of the league’s teams.
The rule would not affect the current salary structure, with a $2 million salary cap for the league and a $500,000 salary cap.
It would also not affect future salary caps, which are set annually by the owners and are set to rise from $10 million in 2020 to $12 million in 2022.
The NFL said the rule would help the league become a more sustainable business by incentivizing teams to remain in the league.
The new rule would apply to the first 10 teams that are approved by the league to join a new league.
The new rule was approved unanimously by owners in a vote that included some vocal opponents of the new rules, including former New York Giants star Odell Beckham Jr.and current Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake.
Beckham, a two-time Pro Bowl selection and a Hall of Famer, told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he thought the league had a “disrespectful” position on the issue and was concerned about the league being able, for a new player, to earn a big payday.
“I just don’t think it’s right, and it’s not fair,” Beckham said.
“And I think it just makes the league look bad.”
The league said it would be a mistake to create a salary cap, even though it is a part of the rules that are in place.
The salary cap in the NFL is set at $10.8 million for the 2018 season and $15.9 million for each of the following seasons.
The owners said the new salary cap rule is expected not only to help the NFL be more financially stable, but to make the league more attractive to players who want to come back to the league after playing elsewhere.
The proposal will not affect a player’s ability to sign with an NFL team or become an unrestricted free agent.
It is a “temporary measure” that could be lifted after the 2020 season.
The NFL is still determining how to determine whether to move the salary cap to a new year, but the league will have to take into account whether the league is in a recession, which it is expected is unlikely to happen.
The goal of the salary caps is to protect teams from overpaying players.
The cap has historically been used to subsidize stadiums in the past, and the NFL used it to provide a boost to the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2000s and the New England Patriots in 2011.
The salary cap is one of several revenue-generating measures the NFL has adopted in recent years, including the franchise tag, the franchise tax and the new ticket package.
It also has a number of other revenue-raising initiatives, including a “Cocktail Party” where the league awards its players with free tickets to other teams, free meals, free clothing and other benefits.
The proposed rule is likely to draw criticism from owners who believe that the salary-cap system encourages teams to keep players from signing with other teams.
Several owners have expressed concern that the rule will encourage teams to move players back to other cities, which is prohibited under NFL rules.
