Cowboys $12.6 million under the cap

A few tidbits from KFFL:

Cowboys | Team is $12.6 million under salary cap
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the Dallas Cowboys are $12.6 million under the salary cap, according to a source with NFL contractual data.

Cowboys | Team conducted pre-draft private workout with K. Simpson
Denny Seitz, of Charlotte Observer, reports the Dallas Cowboys conducted a private workout with South Carolina S Ko Simpson.

Still a lot of room under the salary cap to work with. Even after the draft and signing all the rookies, we still could be active in the free agent market, not that there's all that much left. But you never know who will get released during training camp or on the final cut-down day.

Here's an interview with FS Willie Pile of all people.

Chris Harris: Now that you have been in Dallas for a year do you feel more comfortable in the defensive scheme?

Willie Pile: I feel more comfortable when looking back at the film. I've looked at the technique aspects that I need to learn to get better. Mainly lining up, the backpedal, my reads and my depth in lining up in the secondary.

Chris Harris: Any personal and team goals for the upcoming season?

Willie Pile: Our team goal is to make it to the Super Bowl and then we have enough in the arsenal to win the game. Personal, is to get my first interception. Once I get my first, the rest will come.

Chris Harris: Where do you feel you have improved since last season?

Willie Pile: I have improved my strength and my footwork. The off-season strength and conditioning program helped mostly with my improvement.

Chris Harris: What would be your message for the Dallas Cowboy fans for the 2006 season?

Willie Pile: That we are going to be a playoff caliber team. We are coming to work and Willie Pile will be a big part of it.

You got to admire Pile's optimism, but with the signing of Marcus Coleman and the re-signing of Keith Davis, Pile's only real chance is on special teams. He might not even make the team if Justin Beriault returns from injury and makes an impact in training camp. Oh yeah, they also asked the requisite Terrell Owens question.

Chris Harris: Are you excited to have Terrell Owens joining the team?

Willie Pile: Yes, he will take some heat off of Jason Witten and our other receivers. He will really help us out, he gives us another dimension and threat to score any time the offense is on the field.
