One day after an arbitrator chucked out the appeal of the Redskins and Cowboys against the NFL's $46 million salary cap penalties, the NFLPA decided to take a crack of their own. Wednesday, a collusion complaint was filed in U.S. District Court in Minnesota by the NFLPA, who allege that the NFL implemented a "secret salary cap" of $123 million prior to the supposedly uncapped 2010 season.
The NFLPA and the players also later learned that, according to internal NFL calculations, those four Clubs did not adhere to the league-wide conspiracy, at least not fully, in exceeding the secret salary cap during the uncapped 2010 season by the following amounts: Redskins:$102,833,047; Cowboys: $52,938,774; Raiders: $41,914,060; Saints: $36,329,770
Yeah, you read that right. The Redskins exceeded the "secret salary cap" by over $100 million in 2010. Gee, I wonder who could possibly have been paid so extravagantly as to put the team that deep in the hole. Anyone know?Because I sure can't think of anyone.
