The other day there was an article out claiming that the Cowboys were only about $3 million dollars under the cap. That didn't leave a lot of room to acquire free agents unless you cut some people or restructured some contracts.
Well, Todd Archer at the DMN (sub. required) says that we are actually $15 million dollars under the cap. That was the figure I had heard a few weeks ago. I guess we won't know exactly where we are until they decide if the CBA will get done or not. From the article:
Also, Archer is not a big fan of Jason Fabini.
Sorry Todd, but Jason Fabini has started at tackle in the NFL going on 8 years or so. You can't compare a veteran like that who has started his whole career with a one-year guy who's team is now trying to replace him. You may not think Fabini is as good as some other tackle prospects out there, but I guarantee you 32 out of 32 GM's would choose Fabini over Petitti, all things being equal.
In other news, Tom Crowder makes a minor splash in an NFL Europe scrimmage. He had two receptions for 42 yards.
