Here is the break down of each players 2013 cap hit.

2 things need to be pointed out: 1) I used Spotrac. Spotrac and Todd Archer are slightly different with Spotrac being slightly higher for a couple players, but for the most part the numbers are the same. 2) Todd Archer says that there are 44 players under contract, I can only find evidence of 43 players cap hits for 2013 (Im assuming the missing player is PROBABLY Josh Brent as Archer said 44 BEFORE Brent's DUI Manslaughter).

Keep in mind that only the top 51 salaries count against the salary cap.

2013 Salary Cap Breakdown By Player

1. Tony Romo- 11.5 + $5.728 SB- $17.228M cap hit
2. Brandon Carr- 14.3M + 2M SB- 16.3M cap hit

4. Doug Free- 7M + 4.175 SB- 11.175 cap hit
5. Miles Austin- 6.732M + 1.57 SB- 8.302 cap hit
6. Jason Witten- $5.5M + 2.5M SB- 8M cap hit
7. Jay Ratliff- 5M + 2M SB- 7M cap hit (It would cost cowboys $1m to cut Rat)
8. Dan Connor- 3M + 1.350M= 4.350M cap hit
9. Orlando Scandrick- 3.8M cap hit http://espn.go.com/blog/dallas/cowboys/post/_/id/4702192/cowboys-face-tough-cap-situation-in-2013
10. Gerald Sensabaugh- 3M + 750K- 3.750M cap hit
11. Morris Claiborne- 1,129,296 + 2,567,182= 3,696,478 cap hit
12. Dez Bryant- 1,557,500 + 390K SB + 1,935,000 other bonus= 3.66M cap hit
13. Tyron Smith- 1,511,009 + 1,897,018= 3,408,027 cap hit
14. Kyle Orton- 1.35M + 1,666,667= 3,016,667 cap hit
15. Jason Hatcher- 2M + 833,333= 2,833,333 cap hit

18. Nate Livings- 1.7M + 700K= 2.4M cap hit
19. Barry Church*** (estimate) 1.4M + 625K= 2.025M cap hit http://sportsblogs.star-telegram.com/cowboys/2012/10/cowboys-reward-safety-barry-church-with-a-four-year-contract-extension.html
***Im assuming 3.8M in guarantees includes 1.4M base for 2013 + 2.5M SB
20. Jeremy Parnell- 1,023,088 + 333,333= 1,356,421 cap hit
21. Lawrence Vickers- 1.2M + 100K= 1.3M
22. Ryan Cook- 1,100,000 + 150K= 1,250M
_______________________________________________

With the top 22 players accounted for, the Cowboys are already over the projected salary cap at $122,335,176

23. Bruce Carter- 766,327 + 507,500 SB= 1,273,827 cap hit
24. Sean Lissemore- 630K + 412,150= 1,042,150 cap hit

33. Dwayne Harris- 555,000= 555K cap hit
34. Kevin Kowalski- 555K= 555K cap hit
35. Phillip Tanner- 550K= 550K cap hit
36. Alex Albright- 555K= 555K cap hit
37. James Hanna- 480K + 26,213= 506,213 cap hit
38. Caleb McSurdy- 480K + 14,850 SB= 494,850 cap hit
39. Donovan Kemp- 480K= 480K cap hit
40. Cole Beasley- 480K= 480K cap hit
41. Lance Dunbar- 480K= 480K cap hit
42. Darrian Weems- 480K= 480K cap hit
43. Sterling Moore- Amount unknown (vet minimum would be 480K)

EDIT

44. Danny McCray- is a RFA. The vet minimum would be $685K) http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/25/minimum-salaries-shoot-up-under-new-deal/
___________________________________________________

Total for 43 players is estimated to be $136,457,621 and with Danny McCray receiving a minimum RFA tender would be $137,142,621


With McCray, Dallas needs to add 9 players (6 players will be added in the draft and I'm projecting the same rookie pool as last year), account for $5M cap penalty, and remaining dead money (such as TNew). The Cowboys rookie pool for 2012 was $5.71M.

Assuming the rookie poll for 2013 will be substantially the same as 2012, this is what the Cowboys 2013 cap situation looks like right now

$137,142,621 (43 players currently under contract + 1 RFA w/ minimum tender [McCray])
+
$5.71M rookie pool (this brings us up to 50 players with 6 draft picks [at least])
+
$5M cap penalty
+
$2M dead money of TNew
+
$390K for the 51st player who I'm projecting to be an UDFA (Cowboys still need 2 other players to fill roster but they do NOT count against salary cap)
=
$150,242,621

Additional Considerations

Dallas can barrow $3M from a future cap and I believe they can roll over current money under the cap to next year which is between $3-4M. At a minimum, approximately $23,000,000 needs to be shaved from the above salaries or $33,000,000 if we want to franchise tag Anthony Spencer again. But, I don't think we should be too quick to assume Dallas would want to borrow $3M from the future for THIS YEAR. Why? Next year's cap also looks really bad. And, we have some huge signings around the corner... Sean Lee next year and Dez Bryant and Demarco Murray the following year.

Now that we know what the actual numbers are for each player, let's use this thread to play with those number to get under the salary. I encourage everybody to be creative.








PS. I DID put a lot of work and time into this. Whoever is the GM for FFMD, feel free to use these numbers as I've done a lot of the homework for you already.

What would be the cap implications for cutting Doug Free or Jay Ratliff?

What players are eligible to restructure their contracts (converting some of their salary into bonus to spread out the cap hit), and how much money would that save us for each of those players?

Because Doug Free restructured his contract this year... it would cost the Cowboys $8.35M in dead money to cut free before June 1st. However, this would result in saving $2,825,000 off the cap next year and $12M off the 2014 cap. If Doug Free was cut after June 1, Boys would save $7M off the cap this year but roll 4.175M in dead money onto the 2014 cap.

Cutting Ratliff before June 1 would say $1M on next year's cap. If he's cut after June first, we'd save $5M on next years cap but roll $4M in dead money onto the 2014 cap.

This is why I think there's no way we can resign Spencer and have to look for his successor in the draft.

Going by this Dallas has to resign Romo and restructure Carr, Ware and Austin. Sensabaugh, Dan Connor and Marcus Spears should be cut immediately to help with the cap space. We can't cut Free before June 1st as he would carry a 8 mill. cap hit so we should designate him a post June 1st cut. Walk up to Jay Ratliff and ask him if he would take a pay cut. If not then sayonara after June 1st and he can kick rocks with Free. It would give us immediate relief on the 2013 cap and even though 8.1 mill. in dead money would be on the Cowboys 2014 cap the 5 million dollar penalty will be gone.

Good stuff slam. Even more reason not to restructure contracts. Dallas , it seems always has a cap issue but not enough winning to justify it.

When has Dallas had salary cap issues outside of this year? Which could be attributed to the bogus $5M penalty. To my knowledge, they have been in good standing for a long time running... Think

I think what he means, and I for that matter is, how inthe hell could a team like Philly sign Vick for a 100 million dollars, and all of the other FA's they signed with the likes of D. Jackson. L. McCoy, J. Maclin, B Celek, etc etc etc. and still be like 19 million under the cap???? They seem to do this every year, sign dozens of FA's to large contracts and yet they are wayyyyyyy under the cap. Dallas signs like 1 big FA and a bunch of turds and we are screwed.

You go first. I got your back, bro.






I say cut Free. Everyone wants to talk about the dead money we would have to pay. The money we pay him now is dead imo, and he is taking up a roster spot. Saves in the long, so do it.

Random, why do you say that?

Of that's the case then not only do we need to be awarded our 5 million back, but also 1.6 million extra (which ever team received as a result) needs to be added as well.
