When I talked to Mike Florio yesterday on Pro Football Talk Live, I said that while there was nothing getting out of Redskins Park about how they might fight the salary cap penalty the NFL slapped on the Redskins, many billable hours were certainly being spent exploring options.
Florio has been looking into it and he says this morning that is just what is happening.
“A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Cowboys and Redskins are exploring all options for challenging the decision,” Florio wrote.
The article goes into some of the pitfalls that could come from legal action. Dan Snyder and Jerry Jones will have to decide if the consequences of suing, even if they win, would be worse than the other issues a suit might bring up.
Clearly, what happened here was unfair. However, if you’ve been around a while you realize that what is unfair is not always illegal. We’ll see how it turns out.
