IRVING, Texas The Dallas Cowboys are wielding a credit card more than they are wielding a pair of scissors as they make salary adjustments to slice more than 20 million from the cap in order to slide under the NFL's expected 2012 salary cap of 123 million.

This will allow the Cowboys to keep Costa under team control through the 2014 season at a reduced cap figure. Clearly, this is a win-win situation for the Cowboys as they’re still looking to get under the 2013 salary cap.
Set to be a restricted free agent, the Cowboys signed center Phil Costa to a two-year contract, according to a source.
As a restricted free agent Costa would have earned $1.323 million in 2013 and now will count less on the cap with the Cowboys tying him up through 2014.
