Encouraging stat predicts DeMarcus Lawrence will have another great season

The Tank should roll again in 2018. It was one of the big questions the Cowboys had to face this offseason. What to do about DeMarcus Lawrence?

Since he was hitting free agency, the Cowboys had a decision to make. Given that Lawrence’s previous seasons had see-sawed from poor to okay, there was trepidation about handing him a long-term contract. The...

Four candidates to be the next DeMarcus Lawrence on the Cowboys roster

You know what is better than one elite edge rusher? Two elite edge rushers! It took four years to do it, but DeMarcus Lawrence finally showed the world why the Dallas Cowboys traded up to select him in the early part of the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The following year, he was healthy and played in all 16 games. He flashed at times and recorded eight sacks on the season. In 2016, Lawrence not only missed the first...

What does Cowboys sack master DeMarcus Lawrence have in common with chess legend Bobby Fischer?

"I'm basically playing mind games with you. I want you to think I'm going here and now I'm going there."It's not the position. It's the disposition.''The Cowboys defensive end jokes that he has zero moves, that all he does is run up the field. But you don't collect 14.5 sacks and 52 quarterback pressures _ the most by a Cowboys defender in 23 years _ the...
