Cowboys cut four players, create less just under a $1 million in cap space; still have more work to do

The Cowboys released four players  on Friday _ defensive end Everett Brown, defensive tackle Corey Irvin, guard Ray Dominquez and tackle Jeff Olson.
The team saved more than $2 million in salary foro 2014 but less than $1 million in salary cap space. More moves need to be made for them get under the projected 2014 salary cap of $133 million. The Cowboys are roughly between $15-$20 million over the cap.
They need to be under the cap by March 11.
The team is weighing roster decisions with defensive end DeMarcus Ware, receiver Miles Austin and center Phil Costa to create more room.
The Cowboys could also create room by restructuring the contracts of quarterback Tony Romo, tight end Jason Witten, cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Orlando Scandrick and linebacker Sean Lee.
