Lawrence’s new deal reportedly includes $65 million guaranteed, which is the 4th highest given to a defensive player.
Lawrence would not have taken part in the offseason program, organized team activities, minicamp and training camp and might have skipped regular-season games if the two sides were not able to work out a new contract.
Cowboys’ Amari Cooper Not Worried About New Contract
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.
Cowboys’ Sean Lee Discusses Need to Return
Dallas Cowboys’ veteran linebacker Sean Lee struggled with a decision regarding his playing future this offseason, but ultimately decided to come back to the Cowboys for another season.
Injuries have always hampered Lee, but he feels that he had to come back to help his team next season.
“After the season some of the injury issues and frustration dealing with that, I needed to take a little time after the season to figure out where I was and what I wanted to do” Lee said, during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan.
“But literally it took me maybe four or five days where I’m like look at the type of team we have, some of these teammates are great friends of mine who I love coming to work with (and) look at the opportunity we have ahead of us. And I felt so blessed to be part of this organization, to have fans support us, support me. I said I had to find a way to come back to try to help in any way I can.”
Cowboys Counting On Big Season from Taco Charlton
The Dallas Cowboys believe that 2019 will be the year that former first round pick and defensive end Taco Charlton will breakout.
Charlton has struggled with injuries since the Cowboys took him with the 28th pick nearly two years ago, but Cowboys VP Steven Jones believes that Charlton is primed for a big season after being a big disappointment to start his career.
“Taco obviously hasn’t made his way into the starting lineup yet,” Jones said during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan. “He had an injury last year, which set him back. He didn’t necessarily come back as strong as he did before he got hurt. So, this is a big year for Taco to step up. We certainly need him with our defensive front.”
Charlton collected 27 tackles, a fumble recovery and a sack last season, over 11 games, for Dallas.
