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.

Sean Lee

Dallas Cowboys veteran linebacker Sean Lee may be behind the likes of Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith on the depth chart, but he is still expected to start for Dallas during the 2019 season.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Clarence E. Hill Jr., while Lee is expected to backup Vander Esch at weakside linebacker and Smith at middle linebacker at times, he will start as the Cowboys’ strongside linebacker in 2019.

Lee starting in that position allows him to take over for Damien Wilson, who signed with the Kansas City Chiefs during free agency this offseason.

While Lee, who took a significant paycut to return to Dallas this offseason, won’t see as much playing time in that role, it is still a starting job.

When it comes to ironing out a new contract with the Dallas Cowboys, wide receiver Amari Cooper is focusing on earning the new deal with his play on the field.

Cooper is currently slated to make $13.9 million this upcoming season, and the Cowboys are making it a priority to work out a new deal with Cooper.

“It’s kind of weird situation, just being that I’ve never been in this situation before, talking about a contract,” Cooper said, during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas News. 

“But also, I’m under a fifth-year option, so I’m not too familiar with it. I really don’t ask my agent many questions. I’m not really worried about it that much.

“I’m more focused on actually playing and really earning the respect and then the contract.”

Cooper hauled in 53 receptions for 725 yards and six touchdowns last season for the Cowboys.
