Cowboys Make First Offer to DE DeMarcus Lawrence

Cowboys have made their first offer to defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, and executive vice president Stephen Jones is hopeful a long-term deal can be reached with the Pro Bowl defensive end, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

“I’m confident we’ll get a deal done,” Jones said in a break between competition committee meetings in Indianapolis. “I don’t know the timing, but I’m very confident we can get a deal done. Everybody’s on the record from Jerry [Jones] to myself to Jason Garrett to Will [McClay] on what we think of D-Law.”

The Cowboys have until March 5 to get a multi-year deal done with Lawrence before having to use the franchise tag. They will meet with Lawrence’s agent, David Canter, later this week during the NFL scouting combine.

“It’s the last day you’ve got to tag him, but at the end of the day, we know it’s not over if it doesn’t get done by then. I hate to put deadlines on anything,” Jones said. “Would we like to get it done? I’d like to have it done yesterday. We’ve just got to continue to work.”
