Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram mentions that it was initially assumed that the Dallas Cowboys would have very limited cap space after they chose to release Roy Williams, Marion Barber, Marc Colombo, Leonard Davis and Andre Gurode last season.
The good news for the Cowboys is that they’ll have $12.6 million in cap room to use during the offseason to address their roster needs and owner Jerry Jones figures to get the most out it.
“I give Stephen [Jones] a lot of credit for taking a year we thought would be Armageddon for us, and we were able to do some things last year with the cap that puts us and gives us some viability,” Jones said. “Stephen and a lot of the crew he works with regarding the caps, regarding the contracts, all of that has given us a chance to have some room to improve this team this year. And we will use it.”
Saints G Carl Nicks has been rumored to be at the top of the Cowboys wishlist so we’ll have to see just how aggressive Dallas is during the offseason.
