The Dallas Cowboys will gain $5.5 million in salary-cap space on Monday when the March release of Miles Austin becomes official.

As a result, the Cowboys will temporarily have more than $10 million in cap room, but that does not mean they can spend a lot of it.

That room does not include the impending deals for first-round pick Zack Martin and second-round pick DeMarcus Lawrence. The Cowboys also have to keep money aside for players they will add during the season, injury settlements with players they release, and practice squad players.
