After playing out the last season under the Franchise Tag, the Dallas Cowboys want to work out a long-term contract with Demarcus Lawrence to keep him around for years to come.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones discussed negotiations that took place last year.
“I wouldn’t say we were a long ways apart; we were apart,” Jones said,according to Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas News.
“Certainly DeMarcus has done his part to make us feel more comfortable. He put together now two back-to-back, double-digit sack seasons. Of course he’s a leader by example. … Nothing’s changed in terms of my opinion, except for the better.
Lawrence had 10.5 sacks, 64 stops, two forced fumbles, and an interception last season for Dallas.
Cowboys Sign Kerry Hyder
Hyder, 27, was non-tendered by the Detroit Lions following a disappointing 2018 season in which he appeared in only 7 games and collected only one sack during that time.
Hyder missed the entire 2017 season due to a torn Achilles.
Cowboys Re-Sign Tavon Austin
Austin played mostly on special teams for the Cowboys last season, but was mostly an after-though in their offense.
Dallas will give Austin another chance to ear his spot, and more playing time in 2019.
Cowboys to Target Earl Thomas
As expected, the Dallas Cowboys will be making a “strong push” for Seattle Seahawks veteran safety Earl Thomas this offseason despite Thomas’ likely high price tag, according to the Dallas Morning News’ David Moore.
Thomas is reportedly seeking a deal that will pay him around $13 million per year, but the Cowboys are apparently not scared off by that price.
