If the Redskins take the NFL to court over salary cap penalties, they’ll go it alone.
The Dallas Cowboys, who were penalized $10 million in cap space at the same time the Redskins were hit with a $36 million penalty, have indicated that they will not become a party to any legal action the Redskins might take to prevent the start of free agency while they challenge the penalties.
"We are not involved and we won't become involved," a source with the Cowboys told Ed Werder of ESPN.
It certainly makes sense for the Cowboys to stay out of it. They have just $5 million left on their penalty and the risk-reward formula would make it a bad move with so little to gain.
The Redskins are letting some around the league know that they are considering going to court to get an injunction to hold the start of free agency until their attempt to recoup the lost cap space has been resolved.
