Redskins, Cowboys stuck with salary-cap reductionsMay 22, 2012 - 6:48 PM Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - The Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys will be forced to work with salary-cap reductions over the next two years.
A grievance filed by the two teams was dismissed by special master Stephen Burbank.
"We pursued our salary cap claim pursuant to the CBA and we respect and will abide by the arbitrator's decision to dismiss," the Cowboys and Redskins said in a joint statement. "We will continue to focus on our football teams and the 2012 season."
The Redskins will have a cap reduction of $36 million over two years, while the Cowboys will suffer a $10 million hit in the same span.
Both teams piled money into the uncapped season of 2010 by front-loading contracts.
