One part of that equation has been settled as both parties to lawsuits stemming from the incident have dropped their claims. Donald Payne, owner and manager of Chill Sports Bar in Grapevine, filed a lawsuit in January claiming Melton punched and bit him.

Cowboys' Henry Melton: The Savior Or Are Expectations Too High?

Cowboys' Henry Melton: The Savior Or Are Expectations Too High?

Enthusiasm for rushman Henry Melton's return to the Lone Star State is running high, but are fan expectations running too high? When the 2013 NFL season was winding down, speculation around the Dallas Cowboys began to include a potential return to Texas for Henry Melton. A native of nearby Grapevine, fans around the Metroplex longed to see the former Texas Longhorn return to his home state to continue his football career. Although Melton has proven his worth as a player many times over, I openly questioned if a return to his native soil might result in unrealistic expectations among a...

Jerry Jones isn't taking a step back

There was a notable absence during the recruitment of Henry Melton a few weeks ago at Valley Ranch. Jason Garrett and Rod Marinelli were around for dinner and a tour of the Valley Ranch facility. Stephen Jones was around too. But no Jerry Jones. It led to speculation that the owner was taking a lesser role during the free agency period. Jones had a previous engagement and couldn't attend the dinner or the tour with Melton. And to say Jones is taking a step back with his franchise trying to overcome three consecutive seasons of 8-8 isn't happening.

SB Nation ranks the Chicago Bears as 6th best in NFL Free Agency

SB Nation ranks the Chicago Bears as 6th best in NFL Free Agency

What's an NFL off season without a bunch of lists? SB Nation ranked all 32 teams from best to worst according to their free agency moves, and the Chicago Bears just missed the top 5... The buzz about the 2014 Chicago Bears free agency moves has been overwhelmingly positive. They may have missed out on their #1 target, but they quickly moved on. All in all, I can't imagine a better scenario for the Bears' last few weeks of free agant moves. If I really wanted to nitpick, I could wonder why they didn't make more of an effort to re-sign Corey Wootton or Henry Melton, but I definitely think the...

Where to play Tyrone Crawford?

IRVING, Texas -- Now that the Dallas Cowboys have signed Henry Melton to be the under tackle along their defensive line, what does that do for Tyrone Crawford? Before tearing his Achilles on the first day of training camp last summer, Crawford played mostly left defensive end in organized team activities and minicamp. There were thoughts this offseason that he could move into the 3-technique spot vacated by Jason Hatcher but now owned by Melton. With Melton on board, Crawford can settle in at defensive end once again.
