NEW YORK (WFAN) - If winning the Super Bowl wasn’t enough of a prize for Giants fans last month, Big Blue faithful got another dose of good news on Monday — offseason style.

The NFL plans to dock salary cap space from the NFC East-rival Cowboys and Redskins, according to USA Today.

The league will dock $36 million from the ‘Skins and $10 million from the Cowboys, says the paper.

With NFL free agency on the horizon, the news of shrunken budgets comes as a big blow to the respective franchises. Just days after sending four draft picks to the Rams for the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, the Redskins had planned to add depth to their roster this summer.

Both the Redskins and Cowboys missed the playoffs in 2011.
