IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have significantly reduced right tackle Doug Free's salary after a difficult season that ended with him as a part-time player.
The Cowboys reworked the final two years of Free's contract, and will he make $3.5 million in 2013 instead of $7 million. Dallas probably would have cut Free if the five-year veteran had rejected a salary cut.
Free is now set to make another $3.5 million in 2014, but that money isn't guaranteed. He originally had $15 million left on the four-year, $32 million deal he signed in 2011.
Free struggled last year and ended up splitting time with Jermey Parnell over the final four games.
The Cowboys also swapped cornerbacks on their free-agent roster, signing Malik James from Langston and releasing Dustin Harris.
