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

Well, they needed a QB anyway and Manning is out of the picture even if they didn't penalized. Supposedly this is a deep draft at wr and TE, so they probably will get RGIII his target this way to.

Cam Inman: 49ers have tendered resticted FA Larry Grant and exclusive-rights FA Tramaine Brock. Nothing on WR Brett Swain.




The Skins still have 31.1 mil this year right? Or does that mean they are 5 mil over the cap?
Every little bit helps.

They can break it over 2 years...so probably 18 mil per.
Barrows: The 49ers did not tender RFA WR Brett Swain. However, Swain could be re-signed after FA begins and compete for a spot in training camp.

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.

How would this at all effect the trade compensation the Rams would want. It was the Rams that wanted to trade the pick before FA so that the signings of Manning, Flynn and other FA QB's wouldn't drive the price of RG3 down with less teams needing a QB and thus bidding against each other. And 18 mil under the cap wouldn't keep them from singing Manning, that's more than enough room.

Not only do the 9ers get more cap money but they also have two fewer teams able to vie for the FAs! Win, win! Too bad it wasn't Seattle, Arizona or St Louis, but glad it was the Cowboys!

...and now that I think about it, the Redskins were on the trail of Vincent Jackson.

Then again, they were looking to sign him and they have probably known for some time that this was gonna happen. They are still WELL under the cap even after the hit.

Yea, but since they like to get all their players through FA anyway, might as well throw all their draft picks at the one guy they want.
