How the Salary Cap Penalty will effect the Redskins | Fanspeak Washington Redskins Blog
It looks like for the most part the Redskins will survive their cap penalty in 2012, but that shouldn’t be too surprising as the Redskins headed into the offseason with a large chunk of cap room. All they lost this offseason was a portion of their cap space. Next season though could be a different story and I wanted to look and see what the Redskins cap situation looked like next year.

Because Morgan spent his college career catching passes from unheralded quarterbacks like Bryan Randall, Sean Glennon and Marcus Vick, his four-year stats aren’t overly impressive. But Morgan is a Hokie I remember fondly because he gave everything he had — even on the nights his team failed to rise to the challenge. That’s why I was a fan of the signing. Because I don’t expect everyone else who cheers for the Redskins to be well versed on the history of the Hokies, I decided to catch up with Morgan this week for a one-on-one interview.

The Redskins Blog | 10 For 80: Bobby Beathard

Redskins may not be helped by NFLPA suit - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins

DALY: Courtroom becomes NFL's new battlefield - Washington Times
Another day, another legal filing in the NFL. This latest one is a whopper, too — bigger than two Albert Haynesworths put together. The Players Association is seeking damages of "up to $3 billion and more" from the league for having "a secret $123 million per-Club salary cap" during the uncapped 2010 year. For those of you scoring at home, the word "collusion" appears in the NFLPA's suit 12 times (which also happens to be Tom Brady's number).
