    Could the Cowboys be gearing up to sign Jason Pierre-Paul?

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...rt_river_index

    Excerpt: "The Cowboys got under the salary cap by restructuring a pair of contracts on Monday. With a few other expected moves, the Cowboys could create enough cap space to become players in free agency.

    The Cowboys' cap situation bears watching for the Giants, especially because Dallas could target defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul in free agency. The Cowboys are looking to improve their pass rush and ESPN's Dan Graziano speculated that Pierre-Paul could be a target in free agency.

    The Cowboys freed up $17.3 million in cap space on Monday by restructuring the contracts of offensive linemen Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick, according to an ESPN report. The Cowboys were roughly $12 million over the projected $168 million salary cap before Monday's moves." Read more...

    This is not TAGF material. This is a FA thread for Cowboy fans.

    Two moves freed up $30.0M, UFB.

    They have 22 FAs of their own. The moves could be just to help resign some of them
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

    Lol most every contract reconstruction has a negative affect on future cap space,and as Mike pointed out they are in similar place we were a few years back having 22 roster spots to fill,that will take a little more maneuvering.

    They would have to spend almost their entire cap to get him at this point. But this scenario is my worst nightmare, JPP signing with an NFL East team.

    think it would break their cap for years.

    No... they couldn't. I'm tired of hearing JPP to the cowboys just cause people want something to write about. Its never going to happen, they have too many cap problems

    Don't forget people in jpp camp could have something to do with it too. They could be trying to scare the giants.
    2017 offensive plan
    1. cut jennings, cruz
    2. draft a atleast 1- RB, WR, TE in rounds 1-3
    3.draft oline-rounds 1-3

    There is nothing to be scared about though... they don't have the money. They can restructure all they want but unless someone trades for Romo and straight up eats his entire contract (which will never ever happen) then they will never have enough room for JPP.
