    Looking Closer At Newman’s Contract
    Posted by nickeatman at 7/19/2011 12:40 PM CDT on

    While it's looking like NFL teams will get three days to negotiate contracts with their own players before a proposed start of free agency, let's look beyond the guys like Doug Free and Stephen Bowen and maybe Marcus Spears in that group.

    It’s not just for free agents, but the veterans who might have to restructure their contract.

    Look at a guy like Terence Newman, who is expected to count an even $10 million on the salary cap in 2011. I have a good feeling Newman will not be counting on $10 million on the Cowboys’ cap – or anyone else’s – this season. That doesn’t mean Newman won’t be around with this team, but he’ll likely need some restructuring.

    Of course, the tricky part is finding a replacement...

    Even though it won't be coming out of my bank account, the mere thought of spending $10 million on Newman makes me squirm just about as much as not having a top-flight cornerback in place to relieve him whenever he turns up injured. Overpaying washed-up vets like him has become far too commonplace in Dallas for far too long, while restructuring will ensure his extended presence. Ouch.

    What's a fair salary for a number one CB these days?
