It doesn’t sound like the Dallas Cowboys will have the ability to spend at all during free agency this coming offseason.
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones claims his team is almost $25 million over the projected 2014 salary cap.
“It’s still tight,” Jones said Wednesday. “I think we always manage through it, but we’re still in a tight situation after coming off the penalties ($10 million for violating league rules on Miles Austin contract) and the things like that. We’re still up against it.”
Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com believes Dallas will have to restructure the following contracts.
The Cowboys most likely will restructure the contracts of Tony Romo ($21.7 million), DeMarcus Ware ($16 million), Brandon Carr ($12.2 million) and Jason Witten ($8.4 million) to lower their salary-cap figures to create room.
