Stephen Jones says Cowboys will be cap tight again

Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones is reporting the obvious this week. We already knew that the Cowboys’ salary cap situation would be tight but he is still reiterating that they’re “still tight.”

“It’s still tight,” Jones said, via Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com. “I think we always manage through it, but we’re still in a tight situation after coming off the penalties and the things like that. We’re still up against it.”

There is already an expectation that they can clear out $5.5 million of the currently $25 million over the cap by releasing wide receiver Miles Austin after June 1st.

“I think Miles is another one of those guys that had a great career with us,” Jones said. “But no different than any of our other guys, you’ve got to evaluate it. What resources he takes up and make decisions from there. Obviously we haven’t made final decisions on any of that yet.”

Then it is back to restructuring the team’s biggest deals.

    Coming off the penalties has very little to do with their salary cap problems. I just wish one of the interviewers would have enough guts to point that out and ask them what the real reasons are for the salary cap problems. Even if every thing else goes right (few injuries and good drafting) get ready for several more years of mediocrity due to poor management of player salaries.
