        If we can't afford the unicorn, no way we could afford Witten.

            If we cut some more meat, we might be able to afford our FA's and our draft picks and maybe a few cheap veteran FA's to get us through this year.. we can always dream though!

              It's pretty comical to have an 8-8 team with that kind of cap number. Even better that it's Dallas. As long as Jerry Jones is at the helm, Dallas isn't a threat to anyone. There's a lot of veteran talent getting dumped on the market due to the cap, and they're not all going to get big contracts; so you never know who's going to be available for the right price. Dallas has some decent guys, maybe one will come our way.

                  I'm shocked that Romo still has a job. I understand he isn't bad, but he folds like a pull out couch when he's under pressure.

                    Brandon Carr and Miles Austin are massive drains... They could be in line for restructure or release.

                        The cap situation isn't nearly as bad as it seems. Yes, some players are due big money, but Dallas can easily get under the cap. I wouldn't expect any releases... except a maybe a few minor pieces.

                        Carr's contract in particular has a built-in trigger that can free up up to 10.5 million for the next year alone. Restructuring Ware, Witten and Austin would also free up another 11 million, and then of course the releases and extending Romo to restructure his deal as well.

                        They'll extend Romo in order to keep Spencer and let a few unimportant guys go. Kevin Ogletree is probably on the chopping block with the emergence of Dwayne Harris. Dan Connor is probably gone due to his lack of success in a 4-3.


                        So, no you can't have Sean Lee or Bruce Carter!

                          ahh, just the man some of us have been looking for. I figured you might have some insight regarding this topic.

                          My brother-in-law is a Cowboys fan as well. He was asking me what I thought about or heard about Dion Jordan from Oregon. I told him that he night have to put on some weight/muscle to play DE in a 4-3 defense. I dont know if he would flourish as a Sam Or Will in Kiffin's Tampa 2. And if I recall, I think Jordan has an injury that needs surgery, but he put it off till after the combine.

                          I told my brother-in-law that the Boys may go after Richardson at DT or 1 of the top safeties in the 1st rd. And he would agree with you Ntegrase96, regarding Harris emerging and Ogletree being expendable.

                            Anytime you have to restructure contracts [including those signed just a year prior], I don't consider that as easily getting under the cap.

                              I'm not a fan of restructuring deals because it will count against the cap at some point, but it's not something I would look at as being difficult. I don't know if they will restructure all of those contracts, but if they really wanted to, Dallas could create roughly 20 million by doing so. And that doesn't even include extending (and subsequently restructuring) Romo, or releasing a few dead weight players to free up another 10-13 million.

                              Basically if Dallas needs to create enough room to retain players that are worth it they will... Ratliff is probably the only one that may have some value (IMO) whose days may be numbered. But with the cap expected to not rise very much in coming years, I wouldn't expect them to go overboard with the restructures since they'll need to re-sign guys like Lee, Carter, Claiborne and Smith.
