GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) – The Dallas Cowboys have filed a brief in their challenge of a $10 million salary cap reduction by the NFL. Owner Jerry Jones says his team followed the rules before being penalized.

A hearing is set Thursday before arbitrator Stephen Burbank on appeals by the Cowboys and the Washington Redskins, whose cap was reduced by $36 million. The two NFC East teams were penalized for overloading contracts in the 2010 uncapped season despite league warnings.
