If the team is really $20m above the cap, they'll have to restructure Carr ($10m) Romo ($8m) Witten ($3m) just to get down to the cap. The Mara penalty will apparently be washed by the unused 2012 cap space carryover. If Dallas releases Spears ($2m) and Sensabaugh ($3m) as "June 1st" and Dan Connor ($3m) they are now low enough to sign their 2013 draft picks. Doug Free taking a pay cut and Miles Austin doing the same (or being released) is really the only area where I can see Dallas making major gains in space.

The club signed Brandon Carr to a big deal ($50m) in 2012 that only cost them $3.2m in cap space. If they can negotiate similar deals in this range, now you're talking about being able to resign Anthony Spencer (should they chose to) and/or bringing in another big ticket player. How that resolves itself in the future we'd just have to see.

Doug Free probably isn't getting cut either. Free was scheduled to make $6m in 2012 and count $8.06m against the cap. He was restructured with a new signing bonus that saved Dallas $3.84m in space, moving his salary from $6m to $1.2 (plus 2.06m SB plus .96m 2ndSB). His remaining prorated bonus is 2.06m x 3 + .96 x 4, or slighty more than the 10.12 million that he currently counts against the cap. The Cowboys would literally be paying the exact amount to not have him; which would be stupid. A more likely scenario is some sort of restructure or (if he doesn't improve) would be to cut him as June 1st in '14 where he would be about $3m in dead money over 2 years.

Shot in the Dark, Anthony Spencer is an Iggle next year. They are switching to a 3/4 and we are going to a 4/3. Yep, that's just how things go for this team anymore, Spencer is an Iggle next year.

That's fine with me. I don't mind watching Anthony almost sack tony Romo.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Vinny Curry start at OLB. I wonder how Brandon Graham will handle the transition. If they were to sign Spencer, would you guys be interested in trading for Graham?
