One of the Cowboys fiercest NFC rivals is in some very hot water off the field.

According to a Wednesday report from The New York Times, the Washington Redskins organization has engaged in some highly inappropriate behavior with members of its cheerleading squad back in 2013.

In one scenario, team officials supposedly required several cheerleaders to be topless in a photo shoot at an adults-only resort in Costa Rica. This took place while several executives from major sponsors, all of whom were men, got to watch up-close.

The nude photos never made it into the team's calendar.

On another occasion, following a 14-hour practice, nine cheerleaders were informed by the squad's director that they had been selected by several male sponsorship executives to be their personal escorts for the evening.

While there was no sex involved in either instance, several of the cheerleaders were disturbed by what had taken place.
