The Dallas Cowboys started the 2014 offseason an estimated $30 million over the NFL salary cap limit. After a few cuts and a couple contract adjustments, Dallas is now nearly under the cap. But their financial situation still prohibits them from being major players in upcoming free agency. But is this a blessing or a curse?

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones explained the situation this way to SiriusXM NFL Radio last month:

“The only thing the cap issues do with us is we can’t be big players in free agency, and I think history will tell you that being a big player in free agency is overrated and usually detrimental to the growth of a franchise, because a lot of these guys are leaving their other team for a reason. It’s usually because [those teams] don’t want to pay them and usually that’s for a reason.”

    Having Salary Cap problems is definitely a blessing especially when you consider the fact that general management doesn’t know how to handle it when they don’t have that problem.

    Gee. I guess little Jones forgot all about Dallas making a practice of postponing paying for players’ salaries until some of them have left the team entirely just because they’re so deep in debt to the cap. Of course, Romo’s salary has been kicked down the road so often, he’s due for, what something like a $25M payday mandatory next year? Let’s see how big Jones and little Jones spin that one!!
