The NFL salary cap for the 2013 season will rise to $123 million from $120.6 million in 2012, an NFL Players Association official familiar with negotiations over the figure told the Associated Press on Thursday. The increase is a result of greater-than-expected revenues last season — primarily from NFL Properties — and a jump in projected league revenues. The Patriots are currently $24.988 million underneath the reported number, which should place them in the top 10 in the league in cap space available for free agency . . . Jermichael Finley told ESPN he wouldn’t be willing to accept a pay cut to stay with the Packers. The tight end is due a $3 million roster bonus on March 27 and there were rumblings during last season that the team was preparing to cut ties with him . . . Titans tight end Brandon Barden, 23, was arrested in a roll-over drunken driving crash Feb. 23 in eastern Georgia. Deputies say they smelled a strong odor of alcohol but Barden refused to do a sobriety test . . . The Cowboys reworked the contracts linebacker DeMarcus Ware, tight end Jason Witten, wide receiver Miles Austin, cornerback Brandon Carr, and center Ryan Cook to save salary cap space . . . Former BC and Broncos linebacker Bill Romanowski could be forced to pay about $5 million in back taxes because of a horse-breeding scheme he says he got caught up in. The US Tax Court decision found Romanowski, his wife Jill, and a business they created in 2003 to invest in a Kentucky-based horse breeder improperly took deductions dating to 1998. The company eventually went bankrupt and its executives were convicted of federal tax fraud.
