How many of their 16 free agents will Cowboys re-sign in 2019?

How many of their 16 free agents will Cowboys re-sign in 2019?

16 Cowboys are playing on expiring contracts. Which of the players stay with the team into 2019? When the Cowboys picked up the fifth-year option on Byron Jones’ contract in August this year, they ensured they’d keep their 2015 first-round pick in Dallas through at least the 2019 season, giving them one less free agent to worry about after the 2018 season. And there is enough to worry about: DeMarcus Lawrence, Cole Beasley, and David Irving headline a list of 16 players who’ll hit some kind of free agency after the season. Here’s the Cowboys’ motley crew of soon-to-be free...

The Human Log has been an unsung hero for this Dallas defense. Maybe you haven’t noticed, but the Cowboys have an elite defense. They have one of the best pass rushers in DeMarcus Lawrence, a legitimate contender for Defensive Rookie of the Year in Leighton Vander Esch, and one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL this year in Byron Jones. Other names are sprinkled in there, too, with guys like Jaylon Smith or Randy Gregory. The Dallas defense currently ranks fourth in the league in yards allowed per game with just 313.4, and they are second in scoring defense, allowing a stingy 18.9 points...

Cowboys news: How Cowboys’ entire defensive line is pressuring the quarterback

The Cowboys defensive line has been so disruptive to opposing quarterbacks this season. Defense getting pressure from entire line - Stefan Stevenson, Fort Worth Star-TelegramThe Cowboys aren’t always racking up the sacks but they certainly have been finding ways to pressure opposing quarterbacks. The defense, of course, is peppered with talented players and All-Pro level production at each level, including defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, linebackers Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch and cornerback Byron Jones. But to really make defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli’s scheme so...

Pro Bowl bound? Here's what could hurt CB Byron Jones' consideration

Kristi Scales, the sideline reporter for the Dallas Cowboys radio network, answered questions about the team during a live chat Wednesday. Below are highlights edited for clarity: Who on the Cowboys defense deserves serious Pro Bowl consideration?Scales: DeMarcus Lawrence deserves a second trip to the Pro Bowl, and cornerback Byron Jones should be under strong consideration for his first trip. The one thing that may hurt Jones' chances is his lack of interceptions. He has zero through 12 games.How glaring is the lack of interceptions? NFL defenses have recorded 324 interceptions this season....

Kris Richard is among those listed with odds to be next head coach of Green Bay Packers

Kris Richard is among those listed with odds to be next head coach of Green Bay Packers

Could Kris Richard leave Dallas? Kris Richard has had quite the impact on the Dallas Cowboys defense during his first season with the team. Overall, the group is playing like one of the league’s best units and Byron Jones is one example of how individual players are benefiting from his presence. While Richard is technically the secondary coach and passing game coordinator for the Cowboys, he’s also the co-defensive coordinator with a different title. Richard is influential in the defensive scheme, game plan, and personnel. He’s a valuable asset and is in line to at the very least be...

Will the Cowboys have enough cap space to keep Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, DeMarcus Lawrence and Byron Jones?

Jean-Jacques Taylor, Cowboys insider for NBC 5 in Dallas-Fort Worth (KXAS-TV) and host of JAM Session 9 a.m.-1 p.m. weekdays on 103.3 KESN-FM, answered your Cowboys questions recently. Here are the highlights:Will Dak Prescott ever get the credit he deserves for being a QB you can win with in the NFL?JJT: Dak Prescott ain't getting credit for being a big-time quarterback until he wins multiple playoff games. Then and only then will folks stop talking about what Romo did and focus on what Dak is doing. Dak completed 24 of 28 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown. He picked up two key first...

Top five players Cowboys should consider retaining with their future cap space

Top five players Cowboys should consider retaining with their future cap space
