    No, you wouldn't.
    You'd take as much cash up front as possible and free up as much cap space as possible so the team could add talent around you.

    Any OL concerns would be completely unrelated to your financial situation and would be communicated regardless.

    Right and that cash upfront could come in the form of a new contract.

    Stephen also said they are tight up against the cap next year.
    Reality is, you don't go out and get guys without it costing you.

    This team has added players at a good success rate. The big miss right now is a homegrown guy in Doug Free. That and overpaying for an again TNew were the big FA mistakes.

    They got tremendous value in other outside FAs. Laurent Robinson being the largest.

    Doesn't have to at all.

    It could simply be the 2013 base handed to you so they can conduct business WHILE they negotiate a long-term extension with you. A massive check this year followed by another in the off-season is hardly a bad deal. And Romo could care less about the 2021 cap hit when he is gone.

    You, and Romo certainly, are not stupid. The best chance to win is providing cap cash to play with. You aren't leaving Dallas in 2013 with or without the extension. Playing hardball to try and get it just means missing out on team mates you'd like to add. QBs simply do not do that.

    His base is ~16m. He could free up as much as 15m BUT you take about 1/5th of the bonus this year in hit anyway. So you eat 3m of the pro-rated SB plus 1m vet salary... could free up potentially 12m. I used 10m as a baseline because that is more likely imho.

    I know it doesn't have to. My point is, if Romo wants a new contract here, this is a good opportunity. That's all I'm saying.

    Romo should make it very clear that improvement of the O line is understood as part of his extension. He should look Jerruh right in the eye and say

    "I risk my life playing with this O line as it is. That has to change."

    In 2011, the Cowboys added three years to Romo's contract that will void if Romo remains on the team through 2013, the same year his original contract stood to end.

    The extension allow the Cowboys to spread out bonus money over an additional 3 years.

    we need cap space; not just for next year but until the cap starts going up which will PROBABLY HOPEFULLY be 2015.

    Yes, don't tie up the cap space, we need to have to sign free agents each year.
