Cowboys to Take Their Time Getting Under the Cap

Dallas has until March 11 to slide under the league's salary cap



    The Dallas Cowboys have until March 11 to get under the salary cap, and they intend to take their time in doing so.

    The Cowboys need to free up about $25 million just to get under that ceiling. While some teams have begun releasing players, Dallas has stood pat, weighing their options. Per ESPN Dallas, asked when the team will start pulling the trigger on some roster moves, executive vice president Stephen Jones said they’ll wait “Til it’s time to get under the cap.”

    Like every year, this stretch of the offseason will involve a lot of contract restructuring for the always cap-pressed Cowboys.

    “We continue to look at them and we continue to look at what’s available out there, what’s going to be available out there, and we’re looking at a lot of tape with [assistant director of player personnel] Will [McClay] and the pro guys are looking at the tape on all those guys and what’s likely to be available in the draft,” Jones said. “All these things affect the decision.”
