    Cowboys Create Salary Cap Space With Restructure Of LB Sean Lee

    The NFL's “Tampering Window” officially opened on Tuesday, and that means a lot of dollars and cents are going to be spent sometime soon on football players. In order for the to do that, they need a little bit more space under the , and they just got some with the restructured contract of linebacker Sean Lee.

    This restructure is one that salary cap aficionados might have seen coming – the Cowboys did restructure both Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick earlier this offseason – as the Cowboys are going to need some spare room if they do have intentions of playing in the Free Agency period. Of course the big domino yet to fall this is the status of , but that is a domino that seemingly has no sort of expiration date in sight.

    Over the last few seasons the Cowboys have established a bit of a firmer grip on their financial approach to their football team. Restructures are the status quo this time of year, and the Cowboys – like most NFL teams – are smart enough to do so with their cornerstone players. The restructuring of Sean Lee created a little more then five million dollars in salary cap space for the team, giving them almost nine million to work with.

    None of this is indicative that the Cowboys are going after a big-time splash with a particular in mind. The Cowboys will need room for their rookie class, but it's fairly safe to assume that there is a player or two that Dallas has their eyes on and is readying the cannons to fire at will.

    I hope the boys know what they’re doing It seems like every off season somebody is restructuring their deal to free up money that won’t even be used on any significant additions Every off season were a piece or two away and the best we can do is players like Mayowa and Thornton , Does Jerry want a ring or not??? We got players like Tyrone Crawford and Romo eating up money but Your not willing to give them up yet, Why??? Patriots beat us out last off season for Long and Jerry said he wasn’t interested in Freeney who went to the Falcons See where I’m going with this!! Mediocre teams make Mediocre moves We gotta get better Everything can’t be done through the draft
