Only 24 hours ago, we were able to relay to you that the Dallas Cowboys had restructured DeMarcus Ware's contract in order to save about $4 million worth of cap space. However, the Cowboys were just getting started with that redo.
Thursday was restructuring day in Dallas, with the 'Boys officially reworking deals for Miles Austin, Brandon Carr, Ryan Cook and Jason Witten, according to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.
ESPN's Adam Schefter noted earlier this week that Dallas planned on restructuring about a dozen deals in total, which means there still might be plenty of work to do between now and Monday, which is the deadline to place the franchise tag on impending free-agent linebacker Anthony Spencer.
ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer figures the team needs to clear about $6 million more of cap space before being able to afford Spencer's tag. They've already shaved off about $23 million, and a Tony Romo extension would help, too. Stay tuned.
