NFLPA Complaint Won't Benefit Redskins, Lawyer Says

The Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys were both hit with big-time salary cap penalties for violating the agreed upon salary cap by the rest of the NFL franchises, despite the fact that there was no salary cap to abide by. In essence this is collusion and that's exactly why the NFLPA has filed a complaint accusing the league of collusion, but the complaint won't benefit the Redskins or Cowboys.

Jeff Kessler, the lawyer representing the NFLPA on the complaint, says that it's to recover lost salaries from the NFL players and union members, but it won't help the teams recover lost cap room. Both teams have already resolved their complaints with the NFL, however.
