Hearing that #Redskins have gained $2 million in cap space by restructuring WR Santana Moss' contract. Should be more than $3M under cap.— David Elfin (@davidelfin) March 12, 2013
The Redskins are keeping the band together. As Rich Tandler pointed out, the Redskins could have cut Moss and Carriker to save $8 million, but Shanahan is sticking with his word and rewarding home guys that have put in the hard work.
The Redskins are currently have approximately $4 million in cap space.
