The Dallas Cowboys will need to make some changes ahead of the NFL free agency period, and Jaylon Smith’s future with the team is clearing up.
The Dallas Cowboys started the 2020 NFL season as supposed Super Bowl contenders. An unfortunate and gruesome injury to franchise quarterback Dak Prescott sent America’s team’s already mediocre season spiraling to a 6-10 finish.
While losing Prescott obviously hurt, it was the Dallas defense that was its glaring deficiency. Jerry Jones has since replaced Mike Nolan with former Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn in hopes of correcting the issue.
The main free-agency concern of the Cowboys is obviously regarding the future of Prescott. Whether they figure out how to keep him in Dallas or not before the March 9 franchise tag deadline, they’ll still need to clear some space to be under the salary cap.
According to NFL Player’s Association records, the team has roughly $17.5 million in cap room under the projected cap of $180 million. Releases and contract restructures are sure to be on the horizon to help them get under the cap, but which players will be affected?
According to a report, it won’t be linebacker Jaylon Smith.
