Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

From Andrew Brandt:

Andrew Brandt ‏ @adbrandt
The "Uncapped League Year" article in previous CBA makes no mention of any warning to teams. Sense that push for this came from teams.

Redskins’ Albert Haynesworth plans to report to training camp - Washington Times

It’s unknown whether the club has tried to recoup at least a portion of the $22 million in signing bonus money paid to Haynesworth during the 2010 season.

Signing bonuses were subject to forfeiture under the recently expired collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players’ union, and the Redskins protected themselves last offseason when they converted Haynesworth’s $21 million option bonus to a signing bonus.

The additional $1 million is a prorated portion of the $5 million signing bonus Haynesworth earned when he signed with the Redskins.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

I think we're still in decent cap shape, just not "outstanding" like we were a few hours ago

And who knows, maybe they did this on purpose. A kind of "beg for forgiveness, rather than ask for permission". Perhaps the penalty ultimately was not as bad as not restructuring the deals in the first place"

Damn good point. I wonder if the NFL has language in the CBA to address this issue in some way though?

A statement from the NFLPA would be nice.

yes, but my point was a number of those teams are grossly under the cap every year (bengals, bucs, etc.), so the money is going to waste.

Except we were following the rules and the league was attempting to collude to void the prior rules set forth in the prior CBA which specifically said that there was to be an uncapped year.

The uncapped year was something that to which all parties had agreed (players and owners). The uncapped year had been included as an intended poison pill. The owners knew what could happen as a result of it when they agreed to it - essentially, the salary cap would be busted for at least a year. That was the specific intent of that provision - to destroy the limitations created by the salary cap in hopes that it would be an incentive for the teams to reup the prior CBA. It failed to do so and some of the intended effects occurred.

The NFL management is now saying "We are punishing you for taking advantage of what this provision was specifically intended to do (f*** up the salary cap system)". IMHO, this is simply wrong and probably a violation of the labor laws governing collective bargining.

If we split the $36M 50/50 against next year, we're already back up to around $17.5M in room with the Sellers and Atogwe cuts.

Not exactly cap hell.

F'ing owners...

Rich Campbell ‏ @Rich_Campbell
It sounds to me like the owners strong-armed the union into agreeing to the penalties against WAS/DAL. Wild stuff.

as ashamed as i am, i actually sent florio and e-mail and raised this issue. no one else in the media seems to be raising it yet, and id love to have it addressed. without a CBA in place, the teams had not right to collude in this manner.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

Is this really a penalty or is it cap space we wouldn't have had if we did not restructure or dump these contracts.

A few restructures here and there, and we're probably right back in the ballpark of where we were.

Glad a lawyer (you are a lawyer right?) agreed on this. It HAS to be collusion. It is almost textbook from my half-assed understanding of it.
