Per Field Yates, both and restructured their deals early on Monday, helping add some flexibility as the Cowboys navigate .

The details around the restructures, though, open up questions around how much was really saved. As 's Todd Archer reported, Dallas only saved about $4 million by restructuring Collins' deal, and really didn't gain much at all for 2020 by doing Elliott's contract.

After tagging Prescott and signing Cooper, the Cowboys were left with around $30 million in cap space for 2020. After these restructures, they likely sit around $34-$35 million.

Something tells me that Dallas is not done adding talent through free agency. After all, why would they open up an extra $4 million if they didn't plan to use it?

Keep an eye on their own , as well as former Broncos Chris Harris. It was a busy day one for the Cowboys this week, but expect news to continue to pick up over the next few days.
