Cowboys rework TE Jason Witten’s contract, create $10M in cap space this week

The Cowboys have restructured 11-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten’s contract, bringing to more than $10 million the amount of salary cap space they’ve created in the past week, The Dallas Morning News reported Saturday, citing unidentified sources.

By reworking the four-year extension Witten, 35, signed almost exactly a year ago, the Cowboys added some $3 million in salary cap space to go with the roughly $7 million they created earlier in the week by reworking center Travis Fredrick’s contract.

“It’s been the case all season. Our defense has never been consistent enough,” coach Frank Vogel said.

Milwaukee won its second straight game without Antetokounmpo, who is resting a sore right ankle. Both victories came against 50-loss teams.

They got a huge lift on Monday from Bledsoe, with help from Muhammad and Jason Terry off the bench. They helped push the Bucks on the 20-6 run over the final 5:27 of the third to build a 74-67 lead.

But the team that Vegas sportsbooks are paying the most attention to is their hometown team.

Most sportsbooks are carrying liability on Stanley Cup wagers for the Knights that range from 300-to-1 to 500-to-1, and would suffer six- or seven-digit losses if Vegas hoists the Cup.

“I figured the tickets were just souvenirs,” MGM vice president of race and sports Jay Rood told ESPN in January, citing the popular novelty of saving the evidence of a preposterous wager to share with friends. “It’s probably the most liability of any team [of any sport] during my 10 years here.”

The Westgate is also currently offering a Field vs. Golden Knights prop, which moved heavily on Monday morning to Field -2000 and Golden Knights +1000 to win the Cup.

“It was one mistake there,” Bundy said of this outing, “but I gave up more runs than we had, so that’s baseball, I guess.”

Manny Machado hit a third-inning homer for the Orioles, who went 0 for 12 with runners in scoring position and stranded 12.

“We just couldn’t get that big knock,” manager Buck Showalter lamented.buccaneers_011
