Looks like the 49ers have added cap space of $1.6m

Adam Schefter ‏ @AdamSchefter Reply RetweetedRetweet Delete FavoritedFavorite · Close Open Details 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.


Adam Schefter ‏ @AdamSchefter Reply RetweetedRetweet Delete FavoritedFavorite · Close Open Details 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.

According to Adam Scheffer.

YES! Sign Swain NOW!
This plus the trade with the Rams ... the Redskins are the most mis-managed team in the league. Ridiculous.

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.
Makes sense that the money is spread out. The Player's Union would freak out if $46 million was not allowed in contracts due to the Cowboys and Redskins behavior.

I am not sure how the process will work, if the Skins and Boys have a timeline to decide whether to split the cap space loss. Somehow, the other teams need to know the exact number they have to work with in 2012 and 2013, and I'm guessing sooner rather than later.

Before everyone celebrates the $36 million stripped from the Redskins, we need to remember that the worse the Skins perform, the higher the selection for the Rams in 2013 and 2014. This may end up being really bad news for the 49ers if the Skins have almost zero cap space in 2012, and are not able to sign any top level free agents, and therefore stink again.

With the signing of Brock and this, according to a recent article we have $21 mil in cap space. If we let Shawnte go we will have $24 mil for cap space.

I actually think the trade was BECAUSE this was coming. They wouldn't have bthe $$$ under the cap to get the QB they wanted so secured the pick.
