NFL Trade Rumors:
ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweets that WR Miles Austin could be a ”potential salary cap casualty” in the next few days as the Cowboys look to free up some much needed cap room.
Schefter adds that Dallas is “roughly $18 million over the cap” and cutting Austin loose would free up $3.6 million.
Austin, 28, could also be approached about restructuring his contract. He’s dealt with a number of injuries in recent years, mainly to his hamstrings. The Cowboys gave him a seven-year deal worth $57.168 million back in 2010, but they could be forced to make some adjustments or even get out from underneath it now, so that they can improve their roster this offseason.
Dallas could also release OT Doug Free, considering that his cap number is a staggering $11.2 million. Free received a four year, $32 million contract back in 2011, so it seems as though there’s a good chance he too could be released at some point in the near future.
