    After the TO and Fabini signings, where do we stand on cash? Do we still have plenty of room? I know we need to reserve some for our rookies.

    I've heard that we have anywhere from 10 million to 13 million. You will have to set aside at least 2.8 for the NFL draft. Next, the Cowboys always like to save at least miminual 5.6 for upcoming season in September, in case someone comes available.

    So that could leave us anywhere from 2 million to 4 million to spend till draft. Also, add in the Cowboys are restructeting Terry Glenn's contract, so that should save another 1 million to 2 million. Finally, if they do cut Larry Allen, or restructure his deal, that should save us 2 million to 4 million. Best I can do, hope that helps.

    Basically 10 Million after the Boyz set aside 2.8 Million for Rookies. Also remember this still includes Larry Allens salary which is something like 7.5 Million for the 2006 season. If they end up cutting him than the number will rise quite abit. This is the reason I'm having a problem being so damn picky on whether we pay a Kicker 1.7 Million or 3.0 Million. I say, this might be the most important Free Agent addition they could add this off season so why worry whether we are saving 800,000 to 1.3 Million when this guy will be the missing link on making the playoffs or watching them. Evaluate them and than sign who you feel would be the best. I personally like Josh Brown from Seahawks who is 27 years old, good on kickoffs and has the biggest upside. I would like to sign him to a 4 year deal for 8 Million and move on to next step.
