By most accounts, the Dallas Cowboys are in the worst shape of any team when it comes to the 2014 salary cap. Even if the cap is raised past the $130M mark, spotrac.com estimates that the team may still be more the $10M over the limit. If the team chooses to cut Demarcus Ware it will save around $16M against the cap. That may just be enough to keep Jason Hatcher with the team.
Depending on how it all goes, DallasCowboys.com staff writer Nick Eatman thinks their is still a chance Hatcher stays.
Yes, the Cowboys have some more breathing room on their own cap, but other teams who are in better shape cap-wise, have a shot to do some free spending.
Still, maybe we shouldn’t close the door just yet on Hatcher returning to the Cowboys. The word around these halls at Valley Ranch is the Cowboys are crunching some numbers just to see what it might cost to bring him back. If anyone can negotiate with Hatcher and his agent right now, it would be the Cowboys.
