Sources: Two teams lose cap space
Cowboys will lose $10 million, while the Redskins will be docked $36 million in cap space, sources said.

Dallas and Washington can split the cap loss over the 2012 and '13 seasons in whatever form they prefer, with $1.6 million each going to 28 other NFL teams, the sources said.
The New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders are the only two teams that will not receive a portion of the money.
ESPN didn't explain why the Saints and Raiders didn't receive any of the split money.

"The numbers is based on the 2012 unadjusted cap of $120.6 million, any 2011 carryover, any adjustments, and franchise tenders."

From the link. So the Saints have $5.2, including that, yes.

Now you have to deduct Daniel's cap.

Cutting Shanle, Herring, Vilma and Ellis frees up about 12 million more.

Ellis 6 mill
Vilma 3 mill
Shanle 2 mill
Herring 1 mill

This must include the 14mil tag on Drew (mo'money) Bree$... If I'm not mistaken we had roughly 100mil toward the cap before the tag and before Smith be a wonderful team player.

The 14mil puts it at 6mil under and Chase signing puts us around 5mil under... I may be mistaken however.
