Newman’s Future Still Uncertain

There has been a lot of speculation about, Cowboys defensive back, Terrance Newman’s future. After a sub par season where Newman was picked on often by opposing quarterbacks, it seems that Cowboys nation was calling for owner Jerry Jones to release the 34 year old veteran and look for a younger more reliable option opposite Mike Jenkins.

Well, things are moving slowly. Ben Dogra, Newman’s agent, said he has not spoken with the team nor are there any plans to speak with general manager, Jerry Jones, during the NFL scouting combine this week.

Newman will count $8 million against the cap next year if the Cowboys do nothing. If the Cowboys release him before March 13th, the date the new league year starts, Newman will only count $4 million against the cap next season. If they decide to release him and wait until March 13 or after, they can designate him a post-June 1 cap casualty which would free up $6 million in cap room.

For all fans that are hoping for a movement on Newman’s status, they may need to wait a few more weeks.

    Terrence Newman should not have a roster spot in 2012 with the ‘Boys. He is a big reason why Dallas lost the Week 17 game-and ultimately, a playoff spot-against the Giants.
