Report: Miles Austin could be a cap casualty http://dlvr.it/304R6V
ESPN's Adam Schefter considers Miles Austin a "potential salary cap casualty" in the "coming days."
Releasing Austin would save the Cowboys $5 million versus the cap. Dallas was expected to approach Austin about a restructured contract after the season. With Schefter's report coming at this point in time, it's fair to wonder if Austin turned down a proposed pay cut. Austin is still an effective No. 2 and slot receiver, but lower-leg injuries have sapped his explosion and vertical speed.

Cowboys would save $3.6 million against their salary cap if they released WR Miles Austin. The team is roughly $18 million over the cap.
