    The only guys we didn't re-do were Dez after pro-rating his 20m signing bonus..... they were never comfortable with his deal

    Yet they still saved 17m when they cut him and ate 8m in Dead Money

    And the other one they skipped was TSmith last year when he had a hurt back and they had used him like a cap space ATM for years

    Getting to the end of TSmith, TFred and ZMartin's deals with no Dead Money is a waste of space and reliable starters

    They also got Free, OScan, Carr, SLee and Witten to take straight pay cuts eliminating the need to restructure

    If we had restructured DWare instead of cutting him we would have actually saved more cap space and been able to keep him another year or two

    Amen.... the Romo deals, the Carr deal and the DWare deal were some of the best cap management deals around.... they were ahead of their time

    SJones just got cheap and fell in love with Comp Picks....we are the DAL Cowboys with 800m in revenues and not the GB Packers or CIN Bengals.... use the Cash advantage as a weapon

    Nah. We were restructuring all over the place just to get under the cap. This year nada, 2018 minimal. Your restructuring and kicking the can down the road strategy is a losing strategy. Glad the cowboys agree.

    It’s for people who mismanage the cap to get under it.

    Exactly when are are you talking about that we were restructuring all over the place? Last year we did about 12.5m. Not much difference than 2016 when we did about 16m worth. 2017 we did 27m, not much difference than 2015 when we did about 30m. You do realize the 27m we did in 2017 is part of this years cap when, according to you, we have cap space because we haven't restructured the last few years. And what is you definition of "few".

    You just laid out a perfect trail of less and less. Finally culminating to zero this year. That’s called a downward trend. Is this too complicated for you?

    Seriously, what gives? Why aren't Jerry and Stephen paying everything they can to ensure Dallas has the most well-stocked roster on the planet? I mean, their revenues are like $300M more than the next closest team. Don't they realize that?

    The Jones' are pretty much acting like there's a mechanism in place designed to minimize the ability of a single team to out-purchase everyone else.

    Come on, Jerry. Come on, Stephen. You make more than everyone else so SPEND MORE!

    sarcasm...... how original

    it is sad that you kool-aid drinkers buy the company line so easily

    Yes lets sit on 40m in cap space and not make a 3 time Division winner into a SB contender

    How crazy us fans are demanding players over profits

    40m could buy Eric Berry, NSuh and TJYeldon and still have 20m in roll-over

    If you aren't behind those signings you are dishonest to the point of being mentally ill
