Tony Romo is likely to restructure his deal to help his teammates

The Dallas Cowboys need to make salary cap space so they can continue their run (Get It). Well reports out if Dallas is Romo is likely to restructure his deal to help his teammates and his team out.

Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, says the Cowboys are expected to do a simple restructure of Romo’s deal for a second consecutive year, converting most of his $17 million base salary into a bonus to prorate the cap hit over the remaining years of the deal.

“We all realize that anything you push forward that if you don’t use it it’ll cost you cap space that you could use for other players,” owner Jerry Jones said. “On an older player, the farther you put it out in the future the less likely you are to use it. That’s the point. That is the trick.

“On the other hand, the effort is to right now put together the best value we can using those dollars and that’s the art of the deal. I will tell you when I look at Tony I certainly do see four or five more years, so nothing scares me four or five years out.”
