Cowboys, Sean Lee Restructure Contract

The Cowboys have restructured the contract of linebacker Sean Lee, according to’s Todd Archer (Twitter link). The move will give Dallas a little more than $5MM in space to work with, sources say. Sean Lee (vertical)

Lee, 31 in July, missed the entire 2014 season and but came back strong in 2015, earning a Pro Bowl nod along the way. This past season, he topped himself by getting a Pro Bowl nod as well as a First-Team All-Pro selection, the first of his career.

As of this writing, the Cowboys now have about $9MM in breathing room. That will come in handy this week, particularly if the Cowboys are serious about major expenditures like wide receiver Kenny Britt. Still, space is limited and we are expecting the Cowboys to ration out their available room to spend. Already, the Cowboys are anticipating the loss of several key free agents.

The Cowboys also recently restructured the deals of tackle Tyron Smith and center Travis Frederick.

    And just like that the Cowboys so called “cap hell” is gone. The cap is ridiculous and means virtually nothing.

      Cowboys trouble is always moving it back and back and it finally catches up with them. Years ago they should have bit the bullet and took the hit.

      • GeauxRangers

        They’re going to have like $50 million in cap space next season if they cut/trade Romo before June 1st depending on what they do in free agency

    It’s amazing how sports without a salary cap are more competitive! A cap has only one purpose, keeping more money in the owners hands.
