Cowboys G Zack Martin adjusts contract for cap relief

By Thomson Reuters Mar 8, 2024 | 9:55 AM

Seven-time All-Pro guard Zack Martin restructured his contract with the Dallas Cowboys to provide the franchise roughly $13 million under the 2024 salary cap, according to multiple reports.

Martin received an amended contract prior to the 2023 season that included $36 million guaranteed and made him third in the NFL in annual salary at his position. Martin’s contract is scheduled to expire after the upcoming season, but his new deal includes three voidable years to allow for spreading out a dead-money charge over multiple seasons, ESPN reported Friday.

Martin turns 34 in November, and the Cowboys expect changes on the offensive line with left tackle Tyron Smith likely to move on after spending 10 seasons on the same front five as Martin, a first-round pick in 2014.

Smith was drafted in the first round in 2011 and has played only for the Cowboys during his NFL career.
