Cowboys’ Dead Money in 2012: $20.9 Million
The Cowboys of the late 1990s and early 2000s fell apart because the team had to endure salary-cap hell. Part of that had to do with the amount of dead money as a result of signing bonuses.
With the team releasing Marion Barber, Roy Williams, Marc Columbo, Leonard Davis, and Kris Brown today, the Cowboys saved $19.16 from its 2011 salary cap.
However, the Cowboys will have $20.9 million in dead money in 2012, according to ESPN’s John Clayton.
Not sure what to think about this. Hard to imagine the Cowboys could go after Nnambi Asomugha.
