Moreover, the only penalty for falling short is that the team has to pay out an amount that gets them up to the average to the players who were on the team during that four year period according to a formula devised by the union. If this is correct, there is no need to rush over the 89% number in 2013 and certainly no reason to overpay free agents we don't want or think we need.
