The 2013 salary cap is set at $123 million and the Washington Redskins need to comply by March 12th.
After being slammed by penalties for spending too much in an uncapped year (2010), the Redskins are scrambling to find the loose change.

After factoring in the penalty, Washington is believed to be $3 million over the cap.’
