According to Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones admitted that cornerback Terence Newman could end up being released due to salary cap reasons.
The Cowboys could save up to $6 million next season, if they decide to cut Newman.
Jones does believe there’s a way Newman can return next season as well.
“There has been a difference in his play,” Jones said Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis per the Star-Telegram. “How much of that was because of a new scheme, you can make a question…. On the other hand, under one scenario, he could be good value.”
The Cowboys haven’t spoken with Newman or his agent and don’t plan on releasing him until they have someone who can replace him.
Newman has been underachieving for quite some time now and they should’ve cut him a long time ago, but the Cowboys have been neglecting the fact that their secondary has been weak for the past few seasons.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
