re: Cowboys are $31 million over the cap for next season

The team will need to restructure several contracts next off-season. Tony Romo and Demarcus Ware will create $19M in room. Sean Lee, Brandon Carr and Jason Witten can create another $12M.

These five restructures would drop the estimated 2014 cap number to $114.099M.

If Miles Austin is designated as a June release, that will add another $5.5M when it takes effect (June).

The current unadjusted cap is $123M, it will probably go up a couple of million in 2014 and the team will carry over any unused space from this season as well (it won't be much, though).

I know some fans really start biting their nails when the topic of pushing more guaranteed money into future years with new signing bonuses comes up, but that's what's on the menu for 2014.

Doing this would add just over $8M per season to future caps in 2015-18.

That's OK.

The team won't need to restructure bunches of contracts in 2015, Romo is the only one I'm expecting (create $10.3M).
