Cowboys VP Stephen Jones weighs in on 'active' contract talks with Dak and Amari, Russell Wilson's new deal and the likelihood of moving back into 1st round of NFL draft

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones is in the midst of preparations for next week's NFL draft. But the club is also in "active" discussions to extend the contracts of quarterback Dak Prescott and receiver Amari Cooper, Jones revealed in an interview on Tuesday afternoon on 105.3 The Fan. Once Dallas locked up defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence on a mega deal on April 5, it allowed potential Prescott and Cooper deals to move to the forefront. However, not much has been said about how the process has progressed. "Pretty much everybody's on it pretty good that there's some pretty active...

Stephen Jones: Cowboys have “active” contract talks going on with Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper

The Cowboys are looking to lock two of their biggest offensive stars. It hasn’t even been two weeks since the Dallas Cowboys officially locked down defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, but work on moving forward with other long-term contract extensions rolls on. Lawrence was the first of many Cowboys that need notes of promises from the team. Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, and Byron Jones are just the tip of the iceberg as far as pending extensions, such is the price (no pun intended) of having great, young players. While we hadn’t heard anything about progress being made with...

Miss 'em or dismiss 'em: Which departing free agents will the Cowboys wish they kept on the roster?

Replacements: Cowboys draft may look to fill holes coming up in 2020

Replacements: Cowboys draft may look to fill holes coming up in 2020

There are few immediate needs to fill for the Cowboys, so will the strategy be more about the long view? The Dallas Cowboys don’t have a first-round pick in the looming NFL draft. But that is not the problem it could be. Because of moves made, including the use of that first-round pick to acquire Amari Cooper, getting the DeMarcus Lawrence deal wrapped up, and a more aggressive approach in free agency to net Robert Quinn and Randall Cobb, they have a really strong group already under contract, with no immediate pressing needs that have to be filled in the draft. They will be looking for...

The completion of DeMarcus Lawrence's contract has shifted the attention to who's next up for Cowboys

No player in Cowboys history has soared to the financial heights of DeMarcus Lawrence.The resident War Daddy, as he's affectionately referred to by the team's owner, is the highest paid player in franchise history in terms of average salary and guaranteed money. The club's largesse with this contract begs the question.Who's next?"I don't think that's fair to say there has to be a pecking order,'' executive vice president Stephen Jones said. "We can work on two, three, four at the same time if it makes sense.''Jones shies away from the phrase pecking order because it implies preferences. But...

DeMarcus Lawrence’s agent on negotiation process with Cowboys: 'We went backwards before we went forward'

Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence's agent, David Canter, was a guest on ESPN Dallas 103.3 [KESN-FM] to discuss Lawrence's new deal and how close it came to not happening. Here are the highlights:On the negotiation process with Cowboys Canter: Yeah, we went backwards before we went forward. Obviously, I've represented players for 23 years and been very lucky to, in my opinion, feel like I've never worked a day in my life. It is definitely one of the most bizarre and weird and amazing at the same time deals I've ever done. I really never fully believed that we could get this deal...

La’el Collins has shoulder surgery, should be ready for training camp

The Cowboys have another player go under the knife. DeMarcus Lawrence had his shoulder surgery to repair his torn labrum on Wednesday.

He will be joined in the recovery room by teammate La’el Collins. Collins let everyone know that he had surgery after the 2018 season for a torn rotator cuff. His rehab will take him into some point in the summer but he should be ready for training camp. He noted that the Cowboys will be very cautious with him in the...

Details of DeMarcus Lawrence’s contract show it was a good deal for both parties

Both sides ended up happy after signing DeMarcus Lawrence to a huge contract. Now that we’ve all had time to digest the signing of defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, what’s become apparent is both sides got what they wanted, and the deal is being used as an example of how to conduct business in the NFL.

NFL.com predicts Ezekiel Elliott to earn $14-$16M per year on his next contract

A huge contract coming up for Ezekiel Elliott? Contract talk is rampant within the Dallas Cowboys organization these days after DeMarcus Lawrence just became the highest-paid player in team history. In spite of that accomplishment, there is still a lot of work to be done. Dallas has to figure out how they’re going to handle the situations regarding Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, and Byron Jones just before they get a moment to breathe, then there will obviously be more work to be done. While the pending contract for Dak Prescott is polarizing because of the way people value...
