Miles Austin WR CLE Jan 09 '13
DallasCowboys.com believes the Cowboys should "try to renegotiate" the four years and $30.5 million remaining on Miles Austin's contract, and considers his roster spot "far from a sure thing."
Jerry Jones' in-house website has a strong take on his No. 2 receiver's contract. The Dallas Morning News reported last week the Cowboys are "expected to approach" Austin about restructuring, and it certainly sounds like that will be the case. With Austin currently due $6.7 million in 2013, the Cowboys could reportedly save $5 million against the cap if they release Austin "early in the offseason." We agree Austin is overpaid and a prime restructure candidate, but we doubt the Cowboys would decimate their receiver depth by releasing him.
