Cowboys Rework Deals For Romo, Lee, Scandrick

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys are close to getting under the salary cap after restructuring the contracts of quarterback Tony Romo, linebacker Sean Lee and cornerback Orlando Scandrick.

The adjustment on the six-year, $108 million extension Romo signed last year will save Dallas about $10 million on the salary cap, while the conversions on Lee and Scandrick will cut about $7 million. Lee and Scandrick got new contracts last year as well.

With the reworked deals announced Tuesday, the Cowboys are slightly less than $1 million over the $133 million cap a week before they must clear the remaining space.

Dallas now has time to work on reducing defensive end DeMarcus Ware’s salary cap hit of $16 million. He had a career-low six sacks in 2013.
