Cowboys and Redskins loss is the Chicago Bears gain

Adam Schefter is tweeting that the NFL is fining the Cowboys and Redskins millions of dollars in salary cap, due to how they front-loaded deals during the uncapped year.

@AdamSchefter Cowboys lose $10 million in cap space, Redskins lose $36 million in space. Can split it over 2012 and 2013 any way they want. More at ESPN.

What does that mean for the Chicago Bears?

@AdamSchefter All that money goes to 28 other teams -- $1.6 million each -- except for Saints and Raiders, who don't get any but don't lose any.

It also has the potential to mean a lot more for us than just a couple of dollars. The Redskins have been linked to wide receivers all off-season, and losing $36million is a quick way to get out of the Vincent Jackson / Marques Colston sweepstakes. In addition, Dallas has been rumored to have been targeting Courtland Finnegan, and need to find a way to lock up Laurent Robinson. Both players that have been hot names around WCG over the past few weeks.
