Cowboys are almost $25 million over the 2014 salary cap

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 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.

    Jer is such a great bidnessman that he can’t pay anyone but Romo. Shocker, but a new play caller isn’t gonna change anything. They need a meltdown right now. Trade everybody, get what you can in draft choices and start again, within the salary cap of course. These people do not know what they are doing. They just wing it everyday, everytime, wing it…Don’t buy tickets, don’t go to games, don’t buy jersey’s.
