Dallas Cowboys are still 6.8 million OVER the salary cap right now....
ESPN.com's Dan Graziano says DT Jay Ratliff still being on the Cowboys' roster "doesn't make too much sense."
Dallas is back over the salary cap after franchising DE/OLB Anthony Spencer last week, and they need to clear at least $6.8 million by Tuesday at 4PM EST. However, cutting Ratliff won't do them much good. It would only save the Cowboys $1 million against the cap. A restructuring is more likely.
And yet you don't hear a peep about it. :mad:
If the Jets were 6.8 million over the cap we would be getting bashed on every sportscenter, NFL live, NFL network and whatever other sports media outlet you can think of. Sh!t, we are 8 million under and I still constantly hear how cap-strapped we are.
Why all the over-reaction and excessive "End of the world/negative" headlining about the Jets?? :dunno:
Obviously there are teams in much worse situations.
