The following statement was issued by Redskins Executive Vice President and General Manager Bruce Allen Monday evening.
The Washington Redskins have received no written documentation from the NFL concerning adjustments to the team salary cap in 2012 as reported in various media outlets. Every contract entered into by the club during the applicable periods complied with the 2010 and 2011 collective bargaining agreements and, in fact, were approved by the NFL commissioner’s office. We look forward to free agency, the draft and the coming football season.
We can't say that's the tack we expected from the Redskins. It certainly seems that we haven't heard the last of this punishment, which might now become a dispute.
For the record, here's the statement from the Cowboys, via Rich Tandler:
The Dallas Cowboys were in compliance with all league salary cap rules during the uncapped year. We look forward to the start of the free agency period where our commitment to improving our team remains unchanged.
