The Cowboys and Redskins have formally objected to the salary-cap penalties they were handed by the NFL.
It is called a system arbitration case (Article 15 of the CBA) and will be heard by Professor Stephen Burbank of the University of Pennsylvania, according to the league.
On Friday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said his team planned to take action against the NFL after it docked the Cowboys $10 million in salary-cap space for manipulating contracts in the 2010 uncapped year.
The Redskins lost $36 million for similar infractions. Both teams’ lost cap space can be spread through the next two seasons.
Jones indicated that he reached out to his longtime NFC East rivals about fighting the league’s ruling.
The NFL took away millions in salary-cap space from both teams after they pushed spending into the uncapped year to save money under the cap in 2011 and ’12.
