The Dallas Cowboys are inching closer to getting under the salary cap.

Once they finish restructuring Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's deal, the Cowboys will be slightly less than $1 million over the salary cap, according to ESPN Dalals.

Per the report, Romo's restructure will create $10 million in salary-cap space by converting $12.5 million of his $13.5 million base salary into a signing bonus. That will reduce his salary-cap number from $21.773 million to $11.773 million.

Romo signed a six-year, $108 million contract last year, including $55 million guaranteed.

The Cowboys have also restructured the deals of linebacker Sean Lee and cornerback Orlando Scandrick, producing $6.8 million in salary-cap space.
