Redskins salary cap penalty a ‘travesty of fairness,’ Bruce Allen says
Question of the Day
Calling the $36 million penalty that was split between the 2012 and 2013 seasons a “travesty of fairness,” Allen said the team is still hoping to recover some portion of the $18 million docked by the league for the upcoming season. He didn’t specify how that might occur but ruled out suing the NFL.
He wouldn’t specify what the remaining options might be, but said he didn’t look at the penalty as something that would be entirely negated.
“I don’t know if there’s anything to overturn,” Allen said. “This is an agreement made between the NFL and the NFL Players’ Association. They’ve agreed to this. And, as with any rule that is an agreement between the two, all the teams have to abide by it.”
The league year opens Tuesday at 4 p.m. and the Redskins spent Monday continuing to clear cap space to allow them to sign free agents, most notably by releasing veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall.
“We do have a game plan,” he said, “and once free agency starts we’ll try to make the proper adjustments and put the best team together.”
