Jets To Get $1.6 Million Additional Salary Cap Space
According to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN the NFL has stripped the Dallas Cowboys of $10 million and Washington Redskins of $36 million in salary cap space for violations during the uncapped year 2010. This decrease will create a wind fall for most NFL teams, including the Jets, increasing their salary cap space by $1.6 million:
Schefter reports that the Cowboys will lose more than $10 million — and that the Redskins will lose $36 million.
The money will be reallocated to the other teams, with every franchise except the Saints and Raiders picking up $1.6 million in extra cap space.
