Cowboys restructure contracts of All-Pro linemen Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick

Cowboys have restructured a pair of contracts to clear some salary-cap <a href="">Tyron Smith Jersey</a> space, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

The Cowboys turned about $21 million of the $24 million due to left tackle Tyron Smith and center Travis Frederick into signing bonuses to clear up $17.3 million and get the team under the proposed salary cap of $168 million, according to the report.

Sporting News contributor Jason Fitzgerald predicted last week that Smith and Frederick would be logical candidates for restructured deals.

The Cowboys are now in a position to carry quarterback Tony Romo’s large cap hit into the regular season if the team can't find a viable trade partner for the four-time Pro Bowler.

Before the new deals, Smith was set to have a $15.8 million cap hit <a href=""> while Frederick was set to have a $14.8 million hit in 2017, according to Spotrac.
