  Cowboys | Dallas shows interest in Deebo Samuel    Sat Apr 20, 12:18 PM

South Carolina WR Deebo Samuel had a pre-draft visit with the Dallas Cowboys and also participated in a private workout with the team on the South Carolina campus.

Footballguys view: We could see Samuel as a late first- or early second-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Samuel is a bully on the field and can rip away contested catches from defenders. He's basically a running back after the catch and going to be exciting to watch as a pro. The Cowboys need more weapons in the WR corps behind Amari Cooper.

  Cowboys | Dallas to pick up Ezekiel Elliott's option    Wed Apr 17, 04:32 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's fifth-year option will be exercised this offseason, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Elliott's option in 2020 is just protection in case the Cowboys can't get a new long-term deal done with their superstar running back. His next contract should pass Todd Gurley's deal with the Rams (four years, $57.5 million with $45 million guaranteed).

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott will report    Mon Apr 15, 10:45 AM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will report for offseason conditioning Monday, April 12, despite his desire for a contract extension.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys took care of DE Demarcus Lawrence and now it's time to get new deals done for Elliott and QB Dak Prescott. We'll see if they can get something done with Elliott before the start of the regular season. He's under team control through the 2020 season (with the fifth-year option next year).

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott may need to take less money    Mon Apr 8, 07:51 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is a candidate for a contract extension this offseason, but executive vice president Stephen Jones said Prescott likely will need to agree to a team-friendly extension so the team can build around him.

Footballguys view: Prescott isn't going to set the market at the quarterback position but he's set to get a huge pay raise from the Cowboys. They have a new deal with DE Demarcus Lawrence and now have to look into paying guys like Prescott and WR Amari Cooper. Jones said Prescott deserves to be paid fairly in his next contract.

  Cowboys | DeMarcus Lawrence to miss preseason    Mon Apr 8, 06:13 PM

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder) will not play in the preseason following his offseason shoulder surgery.

Footballguys view: The surgery was not a surprise for the Cowboys...and neither is this timetable for his recovery. Now that he's signed to a long-term deal, the Cowboys will be ultra careful when they ease him back in during training camp.

  Cowboys | DeMarcus Lawrence agrees to deal    Fri Apr 5, 06:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys franchise free-agent DE DeMarcus Lawrence agreed to a five-year contract with the Cowboys worth $105 million, according to a source. The deal includes $65 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Lawrence was franchise tagged two years in a row and was threatening to hold out if a new long-term contract was not agreed upon. Now, Lawrence is the highest paid 4-3 defensive end in the NFL. He will undergo shoulder surgery now (which the Cowboys knew about) and should be back in time for training camp.

  Cowboys | Jace Sternberger works out for Cowboys    Fri Apr 5, 05:37 PM

Texas A&M TE Jace Sternberger worked out for the Dallas Cowboys Friday, April 5.

Footballguys view: Sternberger plays like a super-sized wide receiver. He has willingness as a blocker but that's not his forte Sternberger is a good route runner with the ability to make tough catches. He should be a mid-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

  Cowboys | Dallas meets with Johnathan Abram    Wed Apr 3, 07:55 PM

Mississippi State S Johnathan Abram met with the Dallas Cowboys Monday, April 1, and Tuesday, April 2.

Footballguys view: Abram is a safety with linebacker tendencies. He loves to hit and that makes him an intimidating presence in the secondary. His playing style could lead to more injuries as he plays with little regard for his personal safety. Abram is seen as a second- or third-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper has not started contract extension talks with the Cowboys at this point, according to a source.

Footballguys view: When the Cowboys traded for Cooper last year the thought was that he would be getting an extension in the near future. Cooper is entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2019 with a cap hit of $13.9 million.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has not started contract extension talks with the Cowboys at this point, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys will have to figure out a correct number for Prescott. He's performed inconsistently over the last two seasons but the team has indicated they will pay him top dollar. Prescott is in the final year of his rookie contract in 2019, set to make just over $2 million.

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence and the Cowboys are at a standstill in regards to a potential contract extension, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. 'We're motivated to get something done and hopefully at some point we'll get some momentum going,' Jones said.

Footballguys view: Lawrence was given the franchise tag earlier this month but has not signed it. He was tagged last year and played on that one-year deal. Lawrence has previously indicated that he would not sign the tag if he was hit with it again. The two sides have until July 15th to work out a long-term contract.

  Cowboys | Allen Hurns falling out of favor?    Fri Mar 22, 09:37 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Allen Hurns will likely see fewer opportunities next season after the signing of WR Randall Cobb, in the opinion of Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News.

Footballguys view: Hurns may not even make the team since he comes with a somewhat pricy four million dollar salary. Hurns best fit was in the slot, and now Cobb provides a better player, albeit one that has as much trouble staying healthy (or more) than Hurns.

Free-agent WR Randall Cobb (Packers) signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Cobb will take over for Cole Beasley, who moved on to the Bills in free agency. He's not the same player he used to be, but Cobb can be a reliable target on underneath routes. Fantasy GMs shouldn't be too excited about Cobb's potential in a run-first Cowboys offense.
