Cowboys Agree to Restructure Michael Bennett’s Contract; Can Be FA in March

It sounds like new Cowboys defensive end Michael Bennett might have a short-lived career with the Cowboys in Dallas.

Thursday NFL.com reported that Bennett, who has yet to have a game in Big D agreed to restructure his contract with the Cowboys, and is now set to become a free agent in March.

It all means that in the end, his career with the Cowboys could span half of a regular season as well as however far the Cowboys go in the postseason.

The restructuring of his deal is part of the previous week’s trade that sent him from the Patriots to the Cowboys.

Under the terms of the deal, Bennett can earn close to $2 million in base salary and active roster bonuses for the rest of 2019 with an added $750,000 in incentives with the last year of his old deal deleted.

Bennett has already banked more than $5.6 million this year with the Patriots.

Report: Cowboys Talking to the Jets About Safety Jamal Adams

With the NFL trade deadline upon us, the Cowboys are reportedly looking for players that could help their team, with one being Jets safety Jamal Adams.

The Jets are looking to purge their roster at 1-6, with that one win coming a few weeks back at home over the Cowboys.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Cowboys and Jets have chatted about dealing for Adams. Rich Cimini of ESPN.com is also reporting that Adams is a “hot name” with the trade deadline a couple of hours away.

Adams was a 2017 first-round pick of the Jets, but has spoken out about being frustrated how this season has played out.

The Jets reportedly are looking to move running back Le’Veon Bell for the right price, but the Cowboys already have one of the best in the league in Ezekiel Elliott.

Two Cowboys Tackles Continue to Miss Practice Getting Ready for the Jets

A couple key Cowboys players are still out of practice on Thursday, as PFT reports that left tackle Tyron Smith and right tackle La’el Collins are not on the field for the team.

There was hope that both would be ready to go for the game against the Jets on Sunday, but right now it’s a big unknown if they will be able to take the field.

Neither player took part in practice on Wednesday and head coach Jason Garrett said that they would both be on the sideline for Thursday’s session as well.

“Hopefully they can practice before the week is over with,” Garrett said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Smith missed last Sunday’s loss to the Packers with an ankle injury and Cameron Fleming took his spot in the lineup. Collins hurt his knee during the game and gave way to Brandon Knight.

Garrett also said that linebacker Leighton Vander Esch will miss a second straight practice because of illness, so there will be several things to watch once the Cowboys close out the practice week on Friday.

Dak Prescott’s Price Isn’t Going Up and Down Week to Week Says Jerry Jones

Dak Prescott is in a contract year, but owner Jerry Jones said his performance — whether hot or cold — won’t affect his price tag, Alexis Mansanarez of the Sporting News reports.

The fourth-year quarterback is in the final year of his rookie deal and exceeded expectations to start the season. Prescott led the Cowboys to a 3-0 record out of the gate with a league-best 74.5% completion rate (at the time) to go with 920 yards and nine touchdowns with just two interceptions.

“Well, first of all, the narrative about his financial as opposed to how he’s playing is laughable. It’s just not that way,” Jones said on his weekly radio show on 105.3 “The Fan”. “It’s too much on both ends of that for both ends of the team and for Dak to equate his performance, stats, or won-loss these first two or three games.”

Jones reiterated that sentiment as negotiations have reportedly stalled.

“Let me get that real clear. It’s not impacting that with me at all,” Jones said. “But I do see Dak showing the ability to handle adversity and basically go out and make the kind of plays that win important games for the Cowboys in the future. I see that.”

Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Not Ready to Fire Coach Jason Garrett

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones is not taking an emotional ride each week with the futures of head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Dak Prescott.

As good as things appeared during the Cowboys’ 3-0 start to the season, Jones is not ready to change his expectations for his team after two straight losses to the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers.

“Everything is here to have success on the field and we just need to get out here and play better,” Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

With the Washington Redskins firing Jay Gruden after an 0-5 start, one oddsmaker has made Garrett the second-favorite to be let go in-season behind Atlanta’s Dan Quinn.

Jones, who has made one in-season head-coaching change when he elevated Garrett to Wade Phillips’ spot in 2010, dispelled that possibility.

“Don’t bet any money [on] that happening,” Jones said. “You’ll lose it.”

Garrett does not have a contract beyond 2019 and is in a must-win situation to return in 2020. Prescott is set to be a free agent after this season, but the Cowboys want to lock him up long-term and if they don’t get a deal done by next March will use the franchise tag to keep him.
