Report: Cowboys $31 million over 2014 NFL salary cap
The Cowboys will have to make some big changes before next season in order to get under the 2014 salary cap.
After the lockout in the 2011 offseason was complete, the NFL fined the Cowboys $10 million off their salary cap for the way they spent money in 2010. Seems as though Dallas is still struggling to get its salary cap under control.
Not helping matters last week was the Cowboys release of Jay Ratliff, mostly because he will cost about $7 million of dead money against next year's cap.
Making matters even worse? The recent contract extensions given to Romo, linebacker Sean Lee and tight end Jason Witten. Obviously, we're still a long way from 2014, and the fact the team is tens of millions of dollars over the cap shouldn't have much of an effect on this year's squad. But expect plenty of cap casualties and revamped contracts between now and next season.
