Washington Redskins need to increase spending - ESPN

A big problem was the $18-million cap penalty in 2013 (following a similar one the previous year), which prevented the Redskins from spending more. The result: They spent $99,419,135 in 2013. Last year, with no more penalty, they spent $123,299,900 so their cash spending was at 92 percent. With the cap around $143 million this year, the Redskins would have to spend $134 million in cash to get in compliance. The Redskins won’t have a lot of cap space to be big spenders in free agency, but with so many needs they aren’t about to sit it out, either. Several other teams are in a similar spot as Washington, with Oakland having spent the least at 80.2 percent.
