Yeah, one way or another, I really don't see the cap dropping significantly without a commensurate salary cut. The idea that team managers would want to take away $6 from their cap space is ridiculous. It would put half the league in an absolute cap hell.
The cut has to be 1) gradual; 2) replaced by increased revenue; and/or 3) tied to a salary cut.
