Collusion was mentioned in another post as a possible reason for the guaranteed money paid for FA's going down.

See below which mentions how the league must spend 95% of the cap in cash and the teams must spend 89% of the cap in cash over a four year period. That 5% and 11% numbers do present a ton of flexibility over the four year period, but it limits significantly what they can do in the long term.

This is from the current CBA page 84-85
================================================================
Section 8. Guaranteed League-Wide Cash Spending:
(a) In each of the 2011–12 League Years, there shall be Guaranteed LeagueWide
Cash Spending of 99% of the Salary Cap multiplied by the number of Clubs in the
League during such League Year.
(cool.gif For each of the four-League-Year periods from 2013–16 and 2017–20,
there shall be Guaranteed League-Wide Cash Spending of 95% of the Salary Caps for
such League Years for each such four-year period multiplied by the number of Clubs in
the League during each such period. (Appropriate adjustments will be made if the number
of Clubs in the League increases during each such a four-year period.) (For example,
if the Salary Caps for the 2013–16 League Years were $100, 120, 130, and 150 million,
respectively, the Guaranteed League-Wide Cash Spending over that four-year period
would be $15.2 billion (95% of $500 million total Caps times 32 Clubs)).
© Cash Spending in a League Year shall consist of the sum of: (1) total
Paragraph 5 Salary amounts earned or paid or committed to be paid to players; (2) signing
bonus amounts earned or paid or committed to be paid to players (including
amounts treated as signing bonus) without regard to proration and applying the valuation
rules that apply to deferred Salary specified in Article 13, Subsections 6(a)(ii) and 6(d)(iii);
and (3) any other non-Benefit amounts earned or paid or committed to be paid to players
in that League Year (applying the valuation rules that apply to deferred Salary
specified in Article 13, Subsections 6(a)(ii) and 6(d)(iv)) including, but not limited to,
incentives, roster bonuses, reporting bonuses, offseason workout bonuses, weight bonuses,
grievances settled, grievance awards, injury settlements or Paragraph 5 Salary
advances. League-Wide Cash Spending shall consist of the aggregate of all Cash Spending
in a League Year. Team Cash Spending, for each respective Club, shall consist of all
Cash Spending by such Club.
(d) Any shortfall in the League-Wide Cash Spending at the end of a period in
which it applies (e.g., at the end of the 2011, 2012, 2016 or 2020 League Years) shall be
paid on or before the first September 15 after the end of such League Year directly to
the players who were on a Club roster at any time during the season(s), pursuant to
reasonable allocation instructions of the NFLPA. Any shortfall shall be reduced by any
Minimum Team Cash Spending shortfall payments made for such League Years pursuant
to Section 9 below.
Section 9. Minimum Team Cash Spending:
(a) For each of the following four-League Year periods, 2013–2016 and
2017–2020, there shall be a guaranteed Minimum Team Cash Spending of 89% of the
Salary Caps for such periods (e.g., if the Salary Caps for the 2013–16 and 2017–2020 are
$100, 120, 130, and 150 million, respectively, each Club shall have a Minimum Team
Cash Spending for that period of $445 million (89% of $500 million))
(cool.gif Any shortfall in the Minimum Team Cash Spending at the end of a
League Year in which it is applicable (i.e., the 2016 and 2020 League Years) shall be paid,
on or before the next September 15, by the Team having such shortfall, directly to the
players who were on such a Team’s roster at any time during the applicable seasons,
pursuant to the reasonable allocation instructions of the NFLPA.
85
© Nothing contained herein shall preclude a Team from having Cash
Spending in excess of the Minimum Team Cash Spending, provided that the Team complies
with the accounting rules of the Salary Cap set forth in Article 13.
(d) If the NFL agrees, or a final judgment or award is entered by the System
Arbitrator, that a Team has failed by the end of an applicable League Year to make the
payments required to satisfy a Team’s obligations to pay the Minimum Team Cash
Spending required by this Agreement, then, in the event the Team fails promptly to
comply with such agreement, judgment or award, the NFL shall make such payment on
behalf of that Team (such funds to be paid as salary directly to the players on such Team
at the direction of and pursuant to the reasonable allocations of the NFLPA).
