Good/Bad News for a Change - 2013 18MM cap penalty probably (not) going away

Per Chris Russell on ESPN980 an hour ago: We've been secretly fighting the cap penalty all season and now, multiple high level officials inside the organization who have deep, intimate knowledge of ongoing negotiations, "strongly believe" we will get "most, if not all" of the 18MM 2013 cap penalty back.

Chris also said he asked Mike Shanahan today if we would get any of the cap penalty back and he said, "I can't really talk about it because we're still involved in this... I hope that answers your question."

Nice to know that not only did we get to the playoffs without the penalty, but we could be penalty free in 2013. And because of the penalty this year, we got to play a lot of young guys and give them experience, who otherwise wouldn't have gotten it had we filled more holes in free agency.

Yes indeedy! Not that I want a free agent binge, but I do want to see us get one valuable starter in free agency to make up for that lost 1st rounder.

Getting a premier safety or CB would be amazing. Depth would be great too.

Yeah. I like Brandon Meriweather at one spot. And I otherwise like our safety depth. A good starter at the other safety spot would look great.

I have to say I get giddy thinking about what the defense will look like with Orakpo, Carriker, and Meriweather healthy. Let alone what it would look like with a free agent starting safety added to that mix.

Can you imagine a healthy, motivated Meriweather and Jarius Byrd roaming the backfield? That'd be amazing.

For what it's worth, the Post is citing several people familiar with the case who think it's highly unlikely that the Redskins and Cowboys will recoop any cap space in this fight.

I doubt sf let's him go.

Jenkins from Dallas is available, hearing jay Ratliff will be also.

Just a couple names I've heard from Dallas anyway.

Is there a link to confirm this post? I haven't found anything to corroborate...
