Cowboys are likely to restructure both Romo and Orton’s contracts before 2014 season

According to Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas, he expects the Cowboys will re-structure the contracts of both Tony Romo and Kyle Orton.

Romo is coming off his second back surgery in eight months with a procedure to heal a herniated disk. The Cowboys have said Romo is feeling better and the plan is for him to take part in the offseason program, which he did not do in 2013.

The Cowboys will restructure Romo’s contract in the offseason with him set to count $21.7 million against the cap. The move will save the Cowboys about $9.6 million. He turns 34 in April but the club believes he has what it takes to not only deliver them to the playoffs but to make a run in them as well.

Having the offseason to prepare will help Romo not in learning the offense of gaining more of an understanding of defenses, but in getting in optimum shape.

Orton is set to count $4.37 million against the cap. The Cowboys could restructure his deal again to open up space or could release him. The latter seems to be a stretch considering Romo is coming off the surgery, but there is also a wonder if Orton wants to continue to play.

If Romo and Orton get their contract’s restructured expect them to try to re-sign one of their current free agents.
