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.

I would think the majority of that was the Haynesworth bonus...

HOLY
How can they legally do this? If it was an uncapped year, why couldn't we do what we wanted with our salaries?

My guess would be that they save most of that 36 million hit for next season.

I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

Well, if you look at it. If we split it 50/50 between the next two seasons, that's 18 million.

We are supposedly about 40 million under the cap, so that still leaves us with over 20 million dollars to spend.

Plus, we could cut more players to make more room before tomorrow @ 4PM

This would have been nice to know before we made the big trade. No we have no draft picks or salary cap space.


Also we just released Mike Sellers

We can split it up between two seasons, it's not all gloom and doom yet.

That's all true, but we suddenly lost a lot of maneuvering room

If I'm Snyder, my legal team is already preparing an appeal. This is absolute BS!! :evil:

We got totally screwed by Fat Albert. Finally get to trade up for a Franchise QB, and Goodell and his goons do this?

The purpose of the uncapped year was so that teams could spend what they want. So why punish them retroactively??

Wow that sucks. I don't understand why we're being punished for this. How was this "cheating"?
