    Cowboys Restructure Crawford's Deal, Save $4.4 Million in Cap Space

    The Dallas Cowboys cleared some cap space on Thursday evening by restructuring defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford’s contract, the team’s official website announced.

    Crawford just signed a five-year, $45 million deal with Dallas back in September of last year. The move made this week involves converting around $6.5 million of base salary into signing bonus money, which frees up $4.4 million in cap space.

    If the Cowboys need to free up more cap space at some point, Tyron Smith might be a candidate for restructuring, as the eight-year, $96 million extension he signed is seen as easily re-workable, but nothing has been done to that end yet.

    Crawford started all 16 games for the Cowboys in 2015, and finished with 35 tackles, five sacks and a pass defended.
