Anthony Brown has made an effort to keep playing for the Dallas Cowboys despite the fact that he has a punctured lung and broken ribs (twice).
Since the NFL’s next fiscal year doesn’t begin until March 16 and the Cowboys need to stay under the salary ceiling in 2022, Anthony Brown will want to remain on the team’s active roster despite being expendable according to the terms of his contract.
A source revealed that Brown, 28, is a “possibility” as a cap casualty, despite the fact that the team may try to re-sign him after releasing him. Brown has been Dallas’ starting cornerback since he was drafted in the sixth round in 2016.
Brown is due to enter the final season of the $15.5 million contract that he signed in 2020. During this season, Brown is expected to make a base salary of $5 million and count $6.5 million against the cap.
His release by Dallas, which is currently approximately $21 million above the cap, would provide $5 million in cap savings while leaving only $1.5 million in dead cap. This is because Dallas is currently around $21 million over the cap.
