Three of the five starting offensive linemen for the Dallas Cowboys adjusted their contracts to free up a total of $18.975 million on Thursday.

The Cowboys officially restructured the contracts of left tackle Tyron Smith, right tackle La’el Collins and guard Zack Martin, per multiple reports.

The Cowboys were down to around $1 million in available cap prior to the moves, NFL Network reported.

Injuries impacted all three blockers last season.

Smith, who played in only two games, was rumored to be considering retirement, but the Cowboys are planning for his return.

Martin played in 10 games but wound up on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Collins played 15 games last season after starting all 16 his previous two seasons.
