The Redskins overspent and got penalized severely for it.
The salary cap works. It keeps all teams competitive (if the management is any good). The NFL would lose billions if there was no salary cap. There would be far less people rooting for their home teams if they consistently lost more often than won year after year. It would be more like the US government with the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.
Hmmmm....salary cap for US jobs maybe? But I digress...
Competition is good for the sport. Even business competition to sign a good player.
