Players like Austin, Ratliff, Spears, Free, Bernadeau, Livings, Scandrick, Sensabaugh, and even Ware. Looking at Austin's contract, we really have no choice but to keep him until probably 2015. It'll be interesting if we can move him in a trade. His contract is very trade friendly. Hell we could even release him out right. I think we can do a lot more on offense with paying offensive linemen rather than paying Austin. He can't be relied on to stay healthy. So I'd say we just work on having guys like Beasley, Harris, and Coale step up, and give Romo a running game. Jay Ratliff is done. His contract blows up, and we might as well get rid of it sooner rather than later. I'm all aboard getting Melton, especially if we let Ratliff walk. That being said, this is going to be a huge cap hit. I think cutting Spears goes without saying. We don't need him on the roster anymore, and we certainly don't need to be paying him. Doug Free's contract is a killer too, but I don't think we have any choice but to get rid of this guy now. He will cost 7 million in base salary next year. What a terrible guy he turned out to be... I have no idea how we signed Nate Livings to so much money. It might be worth keeping him as a backup until 2014, but this signing just glares of incompetence. I gave the F.O. too much credit with this one last year. I'd also cut Bernadeau this year. Signing Kyle Orton was also a knee jerk reaction. How much of that money could be going towards actually keeping Romo safe in the first place? At least it was front loaded. We're going to have to move on from DeMarcus Ware and soon. This has to be Ware's last year in Dallas before his contract blows up to 13 million a year. I'd work feverishly to trade Ware now. Scandrick and Senabaugh? Releasing Scandrick shouldn't be too hard. Sensabaugh will be a bit tougher, but even more necessary.
