the cowboys' top 7 highest average salary players heading into 2019 are all linemen (3 defensive linemen, 4 offensive linemen), nary a skill position player in the bunch, their combined average annual salary is $81.3 million... in terms of 2019 cap hit, these guys make up 7 of the cowboys 8 biggest cap hits totaling $71.6 million, i.e. almost 40% of their cap space. :shock2:

Under the "60% axiom" that leaves them room for 3 more players who would then take up 20% of their cap (apprx. 37.6 M). Cooper is already part of that at 13.9 M, and Elliott at 8 M, which leaves 15.7 M for 1 player. That won't cover Dak but then he can be paid out of the 2020 cap. Elliott is up in 2020 too.
