Report: Cowboys To Forfeit $10 Million In Cap Space For Alleged Cap Violations

New, comments

In what is now being reported by multiple sources, ESPN's Adam Schefter initially reported that the Cowboys and Redskins will be penalized by the League for allegedly front-loading contracts during the 2010 uncapped year.

How the league can retroactively hand out penalties for contracts they initially approved is completely beyond me, but I guess we'll find out how this logic works over the coming days.

According to Shefter's reports, the cap space being taken away from the Cowboys and Redskins will be liberaly reapplied to 28 other teams, excluding only the Saints and Raiders from this salary cap windfall. Each team is apparently set to receive an additional $1.6 million in cap space.
