Cowboys Quick Hits; Plenty Of Cap Space? Deion Sanders In Ring Of Honor?

New, comments

Here's a nice little link roundup for everyone out there as thirsty for Cowboys news as I am.

-- WEDNESDAY CAMP REPORTS

| DMN | Cowboys NationESPN | BTB's own Dave 'Grizz' Halprin touches down in San Antone today!

-- The Cowboys aren't in salary cap jail. They will restructure the deals of Tony Romo, Miles Austin and DeMarcus Ware today. Had they done it earlier, the players wouldn't have been able to participate in practice until the new CBA was signed. According to Todd Archer, among numerous other sources, this will save them $17 million. Now the Cowboys have $20 million in dead money for 2012, but Archer suggests the team might use this flexibility to rework additional contracts that will bring down other players cap hit's for next season.

Now that the team knows it is at least seviceable at all starting positions, maybe there are additional free agents in the cross hairs. Get creative, Stephen Jones.

[UDPATE] Ware has restructured his deal, but isn't talking money [/UPDATE]

-- Quick hits is normally links only, but this one deserves a little background too . Yesterday, the NFL Live folks on ESPN, Mark Schlereth and Adam Scheffter, took the Cowboys organization to task for not having Deion Sanders in the Ring of Honor. I'm not arguing against his inclusion, but they had absolutely no clue how prestigious the Cowboys consider The Ring. Much more so than other teams revere their own hall of fame's. Spawned from this, Calvin Watkins looks at lifelong Cowboys that are deserving of inclusion in the ring. [ESPN] For what it's worth, Deion himself doesn't think he deserves the nod. [ESPN]
