Report: Cowboys are making it known Everson Griffen is available

The Cowboys have plenty of pass rushers. They’re willing to part ways with one of them.

Griffen has a $3 million salary and $3 million in per-game roster bonuses. This means that, with seven of 10 weeks completed, he’d be available for $1.76 million in salary and $187,500 for each game in which Griffen is on the active roster.

Griffen, a cornerstone for several years in Minnesota, has 2.5 sacks in seven games with the Cowboys.

Although the Cowboys are 2-5, they barely trail the Eagles for first place in the NFC East. This seems to be less about folding the tents and more about selling off an asset at a position where the Cowboys enjoy a surplus.
