    How Dak Prescott's cheap contract could affect Cowboys' negotiations with Zack Martin

    FRISCO, Texas -- The draft is over. The rookie minicamp has come and gone. The OTAs start next week.

    There is so much to wonder about the Dallas Cowboys. Five things, to be exact.

    Away we go with Five Wonders:

    ** On June 2, Dallas will gain $14 million in salary-cap room when Tony Romo’s release becomes official. I wonder whether the Cowboys will use that space on the extension they would like to give to Zack Martin. In the Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick contracts, their extensions were effectively cap-neutral. In other words, their cap numbers really did not increase over what they were scheduled to count that year based on the structure of the new deal. With Dak Prescott on a rookie deal for at least two more seasons before he can sign a megadeal, perhaps the Cowboys would look to front-load Martin’s deal so that, when Prescott’s bigger contract comes on the books, they are not as pressed. Dallas typically structures these contracts with a low base salary in the first year and a larger base in Year 2 that it converts to create room. With Romo’s cap figures coming off the books, it might make more sense to structure Martin’s deal a little differently.
