I share your feelings for that site, but they are using John Clayton's numbers in this instance, not anything they came up with on their own.
Clayton saying Dallas is currently $18.2M over the estimated 2013 salary cap ceiling of $120.9M, which would put the team at $139.1M.
Clayton is counting the 2012 cap carry over, which he has at $2.3M, in this number. He makes no mention of the $5M Mara cap penalty, so I don't know if he took it into account.
I have Dallas at $142.053M if Doug Free's contract remains at the original 4 seasons or $141.413M if the team added two additional seasons when they restructured it last off-season.
That's including the $5M Mara penalty and Clayton's $2.3 cap rollover from 2012.
That puts us either $21.153M or $20.513M over the cap.
