Dallas Cowboys Star

The Dallas Cowboys are currently $20 million over the cap and will need to restructure contracts with several players to get under the 2013 salary cap.

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said that it is “not necessarily” for the Dallas Cowboys to have a contract extension done for quarterback Tony Romo in order for the team to get under the salary cap.
