    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.

    All 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.

    Wow, hadn't seen the actual amounts. $36 million is a massive amount of space to lose. I also read that the NFL punished the Broncos twice during Shanny's tenure, and now again with Washington.

    I hope the NFL doesn't use the phrase 'uncapped year' in association with this, that's too much irony even for me. The NFLPA should appeal this. They negotiated an uncapped year into the last CBA and the league made it uncapped in name only.

    Yeah, that's a major miscalculation by the Redskins front office.

    The ESPN story mentioned that the NFL had warned teams not to take advantage of the "uncapped year" by front-loading contracts.

    I hadn't realized this was subject to any kind of appeal. It will be interesting to see if there's a next step.

    This is because of the Haynesworth et.al. deals?

    yea I read a tweet that the Cowboys gave Miles Austin $17 million in 2010 (rather than spreading it out) and owners around the league were PISSED.

    I don't know if it's subject to appeal or not, or if the NFLPA even cares. The fact that the league warned teams makes no difference to me. The fact that they can come back later and penalize teams like this means that it wasn't really an uncapped year.
