The Dallas Cowboys are in a tight cap situation heading into the offseason because they’re already over the cap. That means they’ll need to do some renegotiating to get under it or releasing some players.
According to ESPN Dallas, wide receiver Miles Austin could wind up as a cap casualty, though the Cowboys would wait till June to open up the most amount of cap space.
Wide receiver Miles Austin figures to be a June 1 casualty, which will open up $5.5 million in space, but would carry more than $5 million in dead money in 2015. Most of that money will be used to sign the draft picks.

Jerry Jones said it’s too early to discuss the contract status if Miles Austin and defensive end DeMarcus Ware.
