Redskins Docked $36 Million In Salary Cap Space Between 2012-13, According To Report

Upon hearing the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins were reportedly penalized for violations in the uncapped year, I figured the punishment would be a couple million dollars in salary cap space. No big deal, right?

Wrong. According to ESPN, the Cowboys will be docked $10 million in cap space and the Redskins will lose out on a whopping $36 million. That's an incredible amount of space for Washington, who at last check had a reported $31.1 million in salary cap space. They can divide that up between 2012 and 2013, according to the report.

That salary cap space will be distributed to the rest of the league -- about $1.6 million per team -- except the New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders won't receive any (but don't lose any either).

The Cowboys had just under $5 million available so, while it's not quite $36 million, that $10 million will affect them.
