Cowboys restructure Romo, Lee, Scandrick deals

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.
