I'm going to pull a Bill and get nit picky, a buyers market - or soft market - means there are more sellers (players) than buyers (teams) which will drive the price down for the players and not up. I can see players holding onto their options so not to flood the market and drive the market price down. Even if the cap goes to 69.65 (really thats only an 11 mil increase), half the current teams are over that already this year and that number only slightly decreases next year (not even accounting for cap holds). This increase will help the teams offset current payroll to avoid those big tax hits till all the CBA is fully implemented (meaning when all the grand fathered contracts are done).
