USA Today has updated its 2008 Salary Chart and there are five Dallas Cowboys in the top 25.
You can see it for yourself here, but Flozell Adams, Tony Romo, Terence Newman, Marion Barber and Terrell Owens are all on the list. Adams is having a mediocre year, Romo is playing slightly above average football, Marion Barber still has not proven he is an every-down back, Terence Newman hasn’t played but one week, and Terrell Owens can’t seem to get open.
Yikes. That’s about $62 million right there. That’s not to mention the contracts given to Ken Hamlin and Patrick Crayton. You can also add Roy Williams to the bunch.
Thank God Jason Witten signed in 2006 for a reasonable six year, $28 million. Sheesh. It’s only $10 million more than Crayton’s outrageous contract.
Overall, the Dallas Cowboys have the second-largest payroll, second only to the incredibly awful Oakland Raiders. The 6-3 Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots have some of the lowest payrolls, along with the Packers and the Falcons.
