The final number is in and the 2014 NFL salary cap is set at $133 million, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.

The NFL sent out a memo to the 32 clubs as to how much money they'd have to spend in the coming league year on Friday afternoon and it's a significant bump.

$133 million represents a massive jump and is good news for players out on the free-agent market as well as teams who were worried about having cash to spend.

Last year at this time the NFL set the salary cap at $123 million, which seemed like a pretty big bump from the projected $121.6 million at the time.

This is a massive bump for everyone involved and nearly a $10 million hike per team from what was originally expected, as well as the total from last year.

Teams that were cash-strapped heading into the beginning of the league year suddenly have a much bigger cushion to work with.
