DeMarco Murray reminds me of a stronger Tony Dorsett, and the Cowboys were certainly successful with screen plays and other passing options with Dorsett. Why isn't Murray utilized in similar fashion? He certainly has the vision if not the extra gear. Seems to be a waste of a valuable resource.

^Checking in on Cowboys' free agents.

DE Anthony Spencer He is their most attractive free agent remaining, but where is he in his rehab from microfracture surgery? He has visited the Washington Redskins and New York Giants, but it seems as if the longer he is available the better chance he returns to the Cowboys on a short-term deal.[/quote]

I do not see where Dallas can make an improvement form last year. The DARFT is not going to do it.

Cowboys have $8.5 million in cap space

As we enter a dead period of the offseason, we present some financial numbers that might interest you before training camp.

The Cowboys have roughly $8.5 million in salary-cap space. That's enough money to fit in a new contract for a free-agent linebacker, if the team deems one necessary to fill Sean Lee's spot at middle linebacker. Currently Justin Durant is No. 1 on the depth chart at middle linebacker. The Cowboys are open to leaving Durant there, but want to see more work once training camp starts and most likely one or two preseason games before looking at the free-agent market.

When it comes to the NFC East, Washington has just $2.5 million left in cap space. The Philadelphia Eagles have the most within the division at $19.3 million with the New York Giants coming in third at $6.9 million.

Cornerback Brandon Carr has the highest salary-cap number on the team at $12.2 million. Tony Romo ($11.7 million), Jason Witten ($8.4 million), Doug Free ($6.5 million)and Morris Claiborne ($4.43 million) are in the top 5. Backup quarterback Kyle Orton, if he plays in 2014, will have the sixth highest cap number on the team at $4.43 million. With Orton and Romo taking up so much cap space, the Cowboys average $17.7 million in space devoted to the quarterback position, far higher than the league average of $12.3 million. Pittsburgh has $21.7 million in cap space to the quarterback position, which leads the NFL.

The Cowboys lead the NFL in salary-cap space devoted to cornerbacks at $22.7 million. The NFL average for that position is $13.06 million with Carr leading the NFL with his cap number. Orlando Scandrick has a cap number of just $3.6 million and he's a projected starter over Claiborne.

Last year, the Cowboys had $48.6 million in cap space taken up by defensive players. So far that number has decreased to $42.2 million for the 2014 season. On offense, the Cowboys numbers have gone up. Last year, the Cowboys cap number for the offense was $49.4 million and this season it's $55.2 million.
