The hammer appears to be falling on teams that stretched salary Cap rules prior to the 2011 CBA deal. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys will lose a combined total of $46 million in Cap space to be spread over 2012 and 2013.

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.

The CAP money is to be spread between teams that didn't take advantage of the salary anarchy during the time when the CBA was not in effect. How this effected the Redskins' desire to finish the trade for the St. Louis Rams #2 pick is anyone's guess. It does mean a bit more [pocket change for every NFL team, except Washington, Dallas, Oakland and New Orleans (the last two guilty of the same kine of CAP cheating in 2010). An extra $1.6 million could come in handy with Free Agency set to begin tomorrow. I'd like to thank our own Eric Nagel for the information and the great article on it over PFT way.
