They haven't taken it away from us. No matter how you slice it we still have more than a little cap space to makes moves. I mean the concept isn't rocket-science.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

do you think we will go into this FA like nothing has happend and just putt of the 36 mill until next year since we belie e we haven't done anything wrong and try and fight it before then? that's what I got from our statement, that our mindset is the same and nothing has changed

And, if we're being totally honest, there is no Salary Cap Central thread (the one you're posting in) if not for CrazyCanuck

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

Even during the years where the Redskins over spent freely and were always in cap hell or close to it, they still were able to sign guys (regardless if they were over the hill or not) so I'm not worried that the Redskins will still be able to take advantage of free agency this year and next. But FRPLG does bring up a good point. This does affect the Redskins, even somewhat over those years of restructure, so I'll be curious to see how the front office is able to work that out over the years. I have not doubt the 'skins will be just fine, but they should definitely fight this.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

One day removed from the news and my blood pressure and BAC has come down to a point where I can look at this with a more level head. Yes it is still very upsetting and I feel it is unfair, but we can let the lawyers fight that fight. In the end we will still have money to spend this year, 22 million if we take half the hit this year (I would think that taking more of the hit would be a good idea since we have so much cap room) and that is enough to start filling some holes on the roster!

Part of my, and I am assuming others, overreaction was based on the the roller coaster of being so high over RG3 and hoping things were looking up for us and then getting initial reports that all but 4 million of our cap space was gone (remember the very first reports did not say it could be spread out over 2 years....or I was too angry to comprehend)

As long as we can resign Fletcher and make a serious run at Winston and VJ or another top flight WR I will be fine.

That's what you'd think, but it doesn't seem like an option anymore.

NFL already took 18 million, which is essentially their way of trying to get the Redskins to agree with it in one way or another.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

I'd be entirely happy with this as a solution.

Take half now and half next year then give it back to us the following two years and remove it from the other teams cap space accordingly. We're in good enough position now that in 3 and 4 years we could probably use the space better.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

Let's assume for a moment that the ruling of the owners stands as is and the penalty remains in force(and that may not be the case in the end).
If we had not dumped dumped Albert's money and front loaded Hall's contract (and whatever we are accused of)
....what would our Cap position be today?
CC? Gtripp?

But they didn't. And sure I'm frustrated, but the universe says deal and you deal

So, most teams were guilty of ignoring the warnings of punishment for not colluding against the union but only the Redskins and Cowboys were punished. Isn't guilty an absolute? You're either guilty or you're not. Only the punishments should be a matter of degrees. Yet, 28 teams (some of whom were probably guilty of ignoring the warnings) were rewarded with more cap space. Other guilty teams were actually rewarded!

This entire action by the NFL stinks to high heaven.

It's pretty hard to sense a joke/sarcasm in a thread this serious, but ok fair enough.

Schefter on Mike and Mike. Said the NFL split it already and the Redskins would have to go to them and agree if they wanted to distribute it differently.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

What happened to the previous reporting that it could be spread however? I don't remember Judge ever being a super-source on NFL stuff like this. He's in the second tier of guys behind Shifty, Mort, Clayton, Breer and co.
