They also made a bookkeeping adjustment on the contract for wide receiver Dez Bryant that day, turning a $1.435 million roster bonus into signing bonus, which allowed them to save about $957,000 against the cap.
It’s important to note that the Cowboys did not add or subtract any money from Bryant’s contract. He is getting the same $1.435 million. It is just being counted against the cap in a different way.
Bryant is signed through 2014.
