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

    -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.

    -that money goes to 28 other teams -- $1.6 million each -- except for Saints and Raiders, who don't get any but don't lose any.

    36 Million in cap space, wow that is a huge amount. I wonder if this had any bearing on them deciding to trade up for RGIII instead of putting in a bid for Peyton. Maybe they figure they couldnt afford Manning and putting a team around him if they lost so much cap space. </P>
    All Hail The New York Giants!!

    Unless the teams already knew this was going to happen (like during the new cba negotiations, I'd say this is going to get appealed. How can you discipline teams during an uncapped year? Seems like these teams must have known this was coming.

    The NFL is taking away millions of dollars of salary-cap space belonging to the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins for front-loading contracts during the uncapped 2010 season, according to league sources. </p>

    The salary cap is projected to be $120.6 million in
    2012, but the Cowboys will lose $10 million, while the Redskins will be
    docked $36 million in cap space, sources said.</p>

    Dallas and
    Washington can split the cap loss over the 2012 and '13 seasons in
    whatever form they prefer, with $1.6 million each going to 28 other NFL
    teams, the sources said.</p>

    The New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders are the only two teams that will not receive a portion of the money.</p>

    During the pre-lockout 2010 season, the collective bargaining agreement expired and the league operated without a salary cap.</p>

    According to sources, the Cowboys and Redskins took
    immediate cap hits during the 2010 season that normally would have been
    spread out over the length of the contracts, giving them an advantage
    that other NFL owners found unfair.</p>

    The league took an abnormally
    long time to release the 2012 cap number, due in part to the fact that
    the league was trying to decide how to handle the issues, the sources
    said. </p>

    According to the sources, the deductions are not termed as
    violations, but are part of a recent agreement the NFL and the Players
    Association made to raise the salary cap number while preserving benefit
    increases and the performance pool.

    LOL, so the 'Skins now have no draft picks OR cap space to pick up WRs and OLs.

    In a few years we'll be talking about what a great QB RGIII would have been if he landed on a better team.
