DeMarcus Ware restructures contract again to clear some cap space

For the third consecutive year, Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware has restrctured his contract to help make some much needed salary cap room, reports the Dallas Morning News.

A source has confirmed that Ware added two years onto his contract and the deal includes a signing bonus that will be rolled into the upcoming season.

The move gets Ware an extra $5 million, and more improtantly, saves the team roughly $4 million for 2013.

That's one down, now onto the next player. Dan Connor will reportedly be asked to restructure his deal, and the Cowboys have drawn a line in the sand on his situation. They're looking to reduce his $3 million base salary in 2013, and if he's not aboard with it, they'll have to cut him.

Others who signed lucrative contracts in the past, like Jason Witten, Miles Austin and Jay Ratliff might be approached as well to have their deals re-worked.
