Jerry Jones says Miles Austin won't be released, may restructure deal

Yesterday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter speculated about the possibility of the Cowboys releasing receiver Miles Austin for some needed cap relief.

This morning, Schefter tweeted that team owner Jerry Jones has no plans to release Austin although his contract may be renegotiated.

With four years remaining on the seven-year contract he signed in 2010, here are his (current) base salaries for those remaining seasons (via contract data from RotoWorld): 2013: $6.732 million, 2014: $5.5 million, 2015: $6.888 million, 2016: $11.38 million.

After missing multiple games twice during the 2011 season, Austin played a full 16-game season last year but finished third on the team (behind Dez Bryant and Jason Witten) in receiving with 66 receptions for 943 yards and six touchdowns.

Going into the 2013 season, Austin is my 32nd-ranked fantasy wide receiver in my early rankings.
