Cowboys restructure Romo contract

NFL

cowboys redo romo deal for cap room

IRVING, Texas — The Cowboys are close to getting under the salary cap after restructuring the contracts of QB Tony Romo, LB Sean Lee and CB Orlando Scandrick.

The adjustment on the six-year, $108 million extension Romo signed last year will save about $10 million on the cap, while conversions on Lee and Scandrick will cut about $7 million. The moves bring Dallas less than $1 million over the $133 million cap. The Cowboys want DE DeMarcus Ware to remain but not at his current $12.25 million.

BILLS: Three-time Pro Bowl S Jairus Byrd said he remains in contact with the team, a day after it decided not to put the franchise tag on the pending free agent. Buffalo offered $30 million over three seasons.

EAGLES: WR Jason Avant was released. Avant, 30, had 297 receptions for 3,646 yards and 12 touchdowns with the Eagles.

BROWNER BACK: Former Seahawks CB Brandon Browner tweeted that he was reinstated following his suspension in December for violating the league's policy on substance abuse.

FALCONS: DT Corey Peters re-signed to a one-year contract.

Kurt Busch pursues Indy-Sprint double

Kurt Busch will attempt running both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on May 25. Busch, 35, has never raced in the Indy 500. Should he race at Indianapolis, Busch would fly to Charlotte afterward for the Sprint Cup event. John Andretti, Tony Stewart and Robby Gordon attempted the 1,100-mile "double," and only Stewart completed both races.

Et cetera

SOCCER: Major League Soccer will start its season this weekend even if a labor dispute with referees isn't resolved. The Professional Soccer Referee Association, representing MLS referees, filed unfair labor practice charges against the Professional Referee Organization, run by the U.S. Soccer Federation and MLS.

CYCLING: A Texas appeals court blocked an arbitration panel from reviewing $12 million in bonuses paid to Lance Armstrong by SCA Promotions.
