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.

League strips Cowboys, Redskins of millions in cap space Posted by Mike Florio on March 12, 2012, 3:28 PM EDT
Getty ImagesWell, it wasn't just a rumor.

We explained an hour ago that there has been talk of the NFL taking action against teams that deliberately dumped salaries into the uncapped year of 2010.

The two primary violators were the Cowboys and Redskins, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Per Schefter, the league will punish the teams by removing millions in cap dollars?

How many millions? Schefter reports that the Cowboys will lose more than $10 million — and that the Redskins will lose $36 million. (And now we know why the Redskins got the Griffin deal done last week; the Rams likely would have wanted even more for the second overall pick now.)

The teams can divide the cap losses between 2012 and 2013 in any portion they want. As of Sunday, the Redskins more than $30 million in cap space in 2012. The Cowboys had less than $5 million.

The money will be reallocated to the other teams, with every franchise except the Saints and Raiders picking up $1.6 million in extra cap space. (The Saints and Raiders presumably don't get the extra money as their own punishment for engaging in similar tactics in 2010.)

So, for the second time in 10 days, the NFL has acknowledged cheating. Though this isn't as serious as the Saints' bounty system, it's still cheating. And the consequence demonstrates what the league thinks of it.

let me go to local sports talk radio to hear how they spinning this in DC Skins and cowboys got caught out there
Spreading the penalty over two years isnt as bad as i first thought. Not having a 1st round pick next year helps the skins this year. They can sign rg3 and a few others and take tje majority of the hit next year.
Skins fans are on the radio going insane. Blaming the NFL blaming Roger saying it's unfair. this is hilarious. now they saying the league hates the Skins and cowboys only.

Here's a link to 2004 Washington Post story on #Broncos violations for background: wapo.st/x1QuU2

Alex Marvez ‏ @alexmarvez
Again, not saying Shanahan is guilty of anything. Need more info. But Redskins should have known if deals would violate uncapped year, yes?

Alex Marvez ‏ @alexmarvez
Even if deals were done by Vinny Cerrato, Redskins should have known about potential problem & dealt with it, imo. Broncos history is fact

Alex Marvez ‏ @alexmarvez
It's a shame because I think Shanahan is a brilliant HC & offensive mind. Gonna make things harder 4 Redskins down the road w/out cap space
This is great. Stupid idiots. That was the problems with an uncapped year. Throwing so much into 2010 killed teams in the long run.
Up to $21,059,844M under with the new addition of the $1.6M.

We will save an additional $2.91M from Spencer, bringing us up to $23,969,844M under.

We'll take Fitz then and we'll give them our 1st round pick, that should help them out a bit.

Your Welcome Arizona

Third rounder. We wouldn't want them to have to spend too much signing that rookie .

In all honesty, the next 24 hours is going to be interesting for those teams that are still over. I hope they do sign Peyton Manning. They would be crippled financially for years to come.
