The weekend didn’t offer much respite from the rush of moves that started when free agency opened in the NFL last week.

More players found new homes, new possibilities emerged for players still seeking teams and the league continued to reshape itself ahead of the 2014 season. Mike Florio will have the latest on all of the biggest developments on Monday’s edition of PFT Live.

One team that will be off to a busy start this week is the Cowboys. Defensive end Jared Allen, defensive tackle Henry Melton and quarterback Brandon Weeden are all expected in Dallas for visits and Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram will join Florio to tell us what to expect when they arrive in Dallas. They’ll also talk about the fallout of defensive end DeMarcus Ware’s departure and the overall outlook for the Cowboys in the near future.

  1. They can afford all three. If you don’t know how or why then you don’t understand the workings of a contract. Do you really think Denver was able to sign all those players and still Remain under the cap. Or how about Byrd signing for nine million a year when the saints didn’t have 9 million in cap space . It’s called average yearly salary so what they et this year will be less than next so Dallas could have signed
    Someone for 3 years 30 mill and only taken a small cap hit. Don’t worry not everyone is business savvy

  2. By robbing future salary cap space you can afford marque players and stay under the cap. Eventually a team has little future left to rob. Good thing the Cowboys have multiple Super Bowl’s a record more than .500 to ease the pain of future legacy salary costs. Sigh.

  3. Everyone from fans to sportswriters overreacts to contract info before knowing the fine print. Even “guaranteed” money isn’t always guaranteed.

    Some teams have brilliant capologists and others don’t. A third group of number crunchers may be good at math, but they are hamstrung by meddling owners. The Cowboys are the prototype for this.

    They can afford anyone they want right now. The question is what happens 2 years down the road.

  4. Who cares if they can afford all three? The only people on earth who don’t realize their window has closed are Jerra and the Oblivious Dallas fan. No one is going to go there at a discount and I would be shocked if Allen goes there because he wants to win now. Romo’s contract has crippled this team and it only gets worse down the road.
