It sounds like new Cowboys defensive end Michael Bennett might have a short-lived career with the Cowboys in Dallas.
Thursday NFL.com reported that Bennett, who has yet to have a game in Big D agreed to restructure his contract with the Cowboys, and is now set to become a free agent in March.
It all means that in the end, his career with the Cowboys could span half of a regular season as well as however far the Cowboys go in the postseason.
The restructuring of his deal is part of the previous week’s trade that sent him from the Patriots to the Cowboys.
Under the terms of the deal, Bennett can earn close to $2 million in base salary and active roster bonuses for the rest of 2019 with an added $750,000 in incentives with the last year of his old deal deleted.
Bennett has already banked more than $5.6 million this year with the Patriots.
