NFL League Meeting 2012: Owners Vote To Uphold Cowboys Salary Cap Penalty

The NFL announced last month that it would levy penalties against the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins due to salary cap violations. The best chance that either had at a reprieve was during the 2012 NFL League Meeting, which began in Palm Beach on Monday. Several topics are open for discussion and voting, including the final decision of the salary cap penalties.

According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the team owners voted on the salary cap situation on Tuesday morning. The decision to uphold the penalties was unanimous, with a final vote in favor of the NFL's judgment, 29-0. The Cowboys will be penalized $10 million, at least $5 million of which will have to be applied in the 2012 season.
