Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones opened his wallet last offseason to improve his team's chances of making the playoffs. Those moves didn't seem to work as the Cowboys are sitting at home watching NFL championship weekend—instead of playing in it.
Jones wrote checks to cornerback Brandon Carr, rookie Morris Claiborne, a couple of offensive lineman and a host of others.
The bank of Jones was wide open in 2012 as he tried his best to improve his team.
It looks like things will be a little different in 2013. As of right now, the Cowboys are about $20 million over the 2013 cap, which is about $121 million.
The Cowboys will dig themselves out of that hole because they have to, but they have to make a couple of moves to get there.
Since I'm not on the payroll for Mr. Jones and just an outside pundit, I'm sure he's waiting for my suggestions as to how they should cut costs. So, here are a few suggestions for the Cowboys to trim their cap number.
