There were no violations of the CFL’s salary cap in 2015, the league announced Tuesday.
“This demonstrates that the salary management system that was implemented in 2007 is working, and that teams are adhering to the system that’s designed to preserving competitive balance, as well as cost certainty in the Canadian Football League,” CFL commissioner Jeffrey Orridge said in a statement.
The 2015 salary cap was $5.05 million. It increases to $5.1 for the upcoming season.
CFL clubs are audited twice annually once during the season and then after its completion. Franchises also must provide regular updates on compensation levels after six, 12 and 18 games during the course of the year.
With no team exceeding the cap, the order for the CFL draft May 10 won’t change. The Saskatchewan Roughriders continue to hold the first overall selection.
