Dallas Cowboys Hung Out to Dry By the NFL

Dallas Cowboys Hung Out to Dry By the NFL

New information has come to light that paints the $10 million salary cap hit that Dallas is facing in ’12 and ‘13 in a questionable light.

Recently it was announced that the Dallas Cowboys and their hated rivals, the Washington Redskins, were being penalized for spending too much money during the 2010 season. Dallas is facing a $10 million reduction over the next couple season while the Redskins are facing a hefty $36 million hit.

Information has now come to light that the penalty that both teams are being hit with was part of the agreement that helped end the lockout. The details are pretty intricate, but the basics of it are as follows.

When the agreement was coming together the players were looking at a salary cap around $113 million, much less than the $120.6 million that it is. The numbers of the new agreement calculated the cap to be around $113-117 million, but if that was the case there would have been much more of a shake-up than we have already seen this summer.
