Just before the longest work stoppage in league history came to an end, Dallas Cowboys’ linebacker DeMarcus Ware told reporters that he would be willing to restructure his contract in order to help the team get under the cap. Apparently, he wasn’t just saying that.
In fact, it was reported today that it has already happened.
"The process is already finished," Ware said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I don't want to get into any numbers or anything like that. It's done. I did whatever I needed to do to help the team."
Before reworking, Ware’s deal represented $11.3 million against the cap. If the restructuring took off the maximum amount, that number would be reduced to $5.9 million.
Other candidates for restructuring include quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Miles Austin. The deadline for teams to be under the cap of $120.4 million is set for 3:01 PM today.
