NFL taking away Redskins cap space
 
[QUOTE]Adam Schefter ‏ @AdamSchefter

NFL is taking away millions of dolllar of salary-cap space from Cowboys and Redskins for how they front-loaded deals during uncapped year.[/QUOTE]



[QUOTE]Adam Schefter ‏ @AdamSchefter

Cowboys lose $10 million in cap space, Redskins lose $36 million in space. Can split it over 2012 and 2013 any way they want. More at ESPN.[/QUOTE]


What the hell?

If PFT is correct about us having $31 mil of cap space and they take away half of the $36 mil, that leaves us with $13 mil of space.

The Cowgirls were $4.7 mil under the cap...so they better make some room just to absorb that $5 mil. Yikes.

Not sure how. The NFL has to approve of the contracts right? So not sure how they could punish them for something they approved?

I cant imagine that they are taking 36 million from our cap space. We might have violated the spirit of the rule, but not the rule. If this is true this is going to hurt us pretty badly.

As crappy as it is it is over the next two years.

We will still have roughly $13 mil in cap space....but now I am sure players will need to be cut. Unless the team feels they can appeal this.

[quote]But while most teams opted not to break the bank in a season without a banker, the NFL instructed teams not to use the uncapped years as a way to dump money in order to ensure that cap numbers in years with a salary cap would be lower.[/quote]

They can spread some of that to next year too

Hate to break the bad news to Fletcher, but he isn't getting that 8-9mil/year contract now. Also probably can say goodbye to D-hall and his figure.



Now, those cheap draft picks are coming back to bite us in the ass.

If we can I'm sure we will appeal.
