NFL owners ok’d the penalties agreed upon by the NFL and the player’s union removing $46 million in cap space from the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins. The Dallas Cowboys were only penalized $10 million in cap space.
The Cowboys and Redskins are seeking arbitration on the matter as they look to appeal the decision. The penalties are based on Washington and Dallas loading contracts during the uncapped year, which violated a “gentleman’s agreement” amongst owners not to do such things.
The owners also approved competition committee recommendations for points of emphasis in the upcoming season, including blows to the head, horse-collar tackles and taunting.
