NFL teams have until Tuesday to get under the $123 million salary cap for the 2013 season.
According to a source, the Dallas Cowboys are close to $6.8 million over the cap.
Several things could happen within the next few days to get the team under the cap:
Dan Connor will either take a pay cut or get released.
Tony Romo could lower his $16.8 million cap number by getting a new deal.
The Cowboys have the necessary paperwork to file with the league regarding several players' restructured contracts. The Cowboys could get under the cap without a new deal for Romo or reworking some deals such as Ratliff's or Scandrick's.
Team officials don't seem too concerned about it at this stage of the offseason because they have a plan in place to make sure they get under the salary cap.
