The Dallas Cowboys have been restructuring all over the field to try and get some financial flexibility and more importantly get under the cap. Captains DeMarcus Ware and Jason Witten were among those to lead the way and the Cowboys are reportedly trying to come to terms on an extension with Tony Romo that would lower his cap number as well.
The Cowboys have also restructured contracts of wide receiver Miles Austin who hasn’t lived up this lofty contract he was gifted after a phenomenal break out season. They also restructured center Ryan Cook’s contract and last year’s free agent prize cornerback Brandon Carr.
And cornerback Carr thinks its a sign of good things from the Cowboys locker room according to a tweet from Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News.
“Carr: Its a “good sign” that guys are willing to restructure to help get “new guys or get better guys to help us hopefully get a Super Bowl””
Restructuring those 5 deals helped the Cowboys shed $20 million and get under the cap. The Cowboys aren’t stopping there. In addition to the Tony Romo situation the Cowboys are looking to restructure guards Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings, two other members of the free agent class of 2012.
