The Dallas Cowboys have been very small players in free agency due to their lack of cap space. They fortunately agreed to terms with linebacker Justin Durant who is willing to wait while the figure it out, most likely with an extension of Tony Romo’s contract that lowers his cap hit.
But while Michael Huff had a “nice visit” with the Dallas Cowboys, he isn’t necessarily willing to wait for the caps to sort out their salary cap mess. This could imply that he has another offer on the table presently. The other team might rescind their offer leaving Huff in a bad spot.
The Dallas Cowboys though have been focusing on their secondary lately drafting LSU corner back Morris Claiborne and signing Brandon Carr. They released safety Gerald Sensabaugh though and need to fill a hole at the safety position. If they were to sign Huff it would address a need and allow them to focus on drafting interior line help in April’s draft.
That puts a lot of pressure on the Dallas Cowboys to iron out a deal with Tony Romo. A situation that could ultimately benefit Tony Romo and gives him the leverage.
Michael Huff said he’s not sure if he can wait on Dallas to get their salary cap situation straight.
