Cowboys, Redskins To Accept Salary Cap Penalty, According To Report

The news came out on Tuesday that the appeal made by the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins regarding the NFL's salary cap penalties had been denied by an arbitrator. Now it appears as though the whole fiasco may finally be coming to an end.

Andrew Brandt of the National Football Post reported the following on Tuesday:

Now the Cowboys and Redskins will be accepting the full penalties levied on them by the league. For the Cowboys, this will not be too big of an imposition, as they were hit with a total penalty of $10 million, $5 million of which must be in effect for the 2012 season. Wrapping this up early just eliminates one more offseason headache for the team.
