Dallas Cowboys restructured Tyron Smith’s contract; Frees up 8.16 million

The Dallas Cowboys freed up $8.16 million in salary cap space Monday by restructuring the contract of left tackle Tyron Smith.

The Cowboys triggered a built-in restructure within Smith’s contract that converted $10.2 million of his fully guaranteed $11.039 million base salary in 2015 into signing bonus money.

That pushes the Cowboys’ salary cap space to a little more than $11 million available if the club wants to add players when the NFL’s free agency period officially opens at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
