Report: Cowboys WR Cole Beasley Wants a Big Payday, $20 Million Guaranteed

After wrapping up his seventh NFL season, Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley appears to be seeking a pay raise, the Dallas Morning News reports.

According to multiple reports from the NFL scouting combine, Beasley is seeking $20 million in guaranteed money.

Last season Beasley had 65 grabs for 672 yards and three scores for Dallas.

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.”

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory Suspended Indefinitely by NFL

Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy, the fourth time the troubled player has been banned by the league, the Associated Press reports.

The suspension announced Tuesday comes about seven months after Gregory was reinstated by Commissioner Roger Goodell following a lengthy process aimed at reviving his career. Gregory missed 30 of the 32 games over two seasons as a result of his first three suspensions.

Gregory had his best year in 2018, posting career highs with six sacks and 14 games. He was reinstated just before the start of training camp last year and was active for the season opener.

Cowboys Want to Get a Deal Done with QB Dak Prescott Now – Not in 2020

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is heading into the final year of his rookie deal.

Prescott, who due to make $2.045 million next year and is currently the 17th highest paid Cowboys player, has clearly outplayed his contract as a fourth-round pick in 2016.

Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said the Cowboys could wait until next year but acknowledged that Prescott is deserving of a new deal now, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

And it’s the right thing for the Cowboys to do.

“You look at a quarterback who’s had the success he’s had. He’s started since Day 1, he’s a fourth-round draft pick,” Jones said between competition committee meetings preceding this week’s NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. “You can imagine, I’m sure what Dak is thinking too. He’s the leader of the football team, as most quarterbacks are. He’s done everything the right way, and I think he deserves to have his contract looked at in a very progressive way.”

When Jones says “progressive”, he means giving Prescott market value quarterback money between $25-30 million annually.

Prescott made $450,000, $540,000 and $630,000 in each of the last three years in which he started every game for the Cowboys, won rookie of the year in 2016 and made the Pro Bowl twice.

The Cowboys are all in Prescott as the long-term answer at the quarterback. So Jones said there is no reason to wait.

“I just think it’s the right time to look at it,” Jones said. “He is in the last year of his contract. We have always said we would like to look at players, especially guys we think have long-term futures with us and we are sure of that. And the last year of your contract you would like to extend.

“It makes sense. We will have to see. Go to work and see what happens.”

Cowboys DE Taco Charlton to Have Shoulder Surgery

Cowboys defensive end Taco Charlton is undergoing shoulder surgery according to Todd Archer of ESPN.

Charlton missed several games because of the shoulder in 2018, but he was able to suit up in the playoffs. That suggests this surgery will be more on the minor side, but it is unclear how much Charlton will be able to do during the offseason program.

Originally the No.28-overall pick in the 2017 draft out of the University of Michigan, Charlton has been somewhat of a disappointment so far in the NFL with only four sacks in his first two seasons.

Cowboys DT Antwaun Woods Has Surgery for Torn Labrum

One of the breakout stars of the Cowboys season has already gone under the knife less than a week into the offseason, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Defensive tackle Antwaun Woods had surgery on Thursday to repair a torn labrum. Woods suffered the injury in the Cowboys’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC divisional round, a game that if you would have checked the Fanduel sportsbook app you would have seen that playing any Rams running back against the Cowboys would have paid off as they had huge games.

“Whole season of bully ball got me like…,” Woods said in an Instagram post ahead of his surgery. “Pray for ya boy.”

After entering training camp as the fourth-team nose tackle, Woods quickly worked his way up the depth chart. By the time the team headed back to Dallas, the player added via free agency in May was working with the starters.

Woods finished the regular season with 34 tackles, one and a half sacks and nine quarterback pressures in 15 starts.

Last season Woods developed into one of the best linemen that the Cowboys had, and even by the end of the year was being thought of as a player who the team should look to lock up for the future.

“There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be on an NFL team right now,” defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said regarding Woods back in May of 2018. “Don’t eat yourself out of the NFL.”

Woods took those words and ran with it, taking them to heart and working his way into not only a starting role but being a player that the Cowboys really could not have afforded to lose as they made their run to the postseason.

“Not embarrassed, because I don’t have sensitive feelings,” the Cowboys starting defensive tackle told USA TODAY Sports. “But I was like, ‘I can’t let that be the reason I’m not successful.’

“Hell no.”

Woods started for four years and earned All-Pac-12 First-Team honors while playing at USC, but he just never got the real chance to shine there, and once the NFL Draft came around, his phone never rang.

He signed with the Tennessee Titans but said he didn’t fit well in their 3-4 scheme. He played just 17 snaps in one game through two seasons.

Once he got to Dallas, it all changed, and now he and the Cowboys seem like a perfect fit for the future.

Cowboys Part Ways with Offensive Coordinator Scott Linehan After Five Seasons

The Dallas Cowboys made somewhat shocking news on Friday, as the team fired offensive coordinator Scott Linehan after five seasons on the job.

If you look the latest football predictions suggest this has to come as a surprise, considering what Linehan was able to accomplish over his time with the team with stars like Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and now wide out Amari Cooper.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett discussed the move, claiming it was a ‘mutual decision’ which is hard to believe based on the Cowboys coming off a season in which they won a playoff game and won the NFC East.

“This was not an easy decision because of how highly we regard Scott Linehan as a football coach and as a person. He and I had some really positive, substantive and open discussions which took place in the latter part of this week, and we ultimately agreed that it would be in the best interest of all of the parties involved if we were to make a change at this position,” Garrett said.

“This was very much a mutual decision, and there was a great deal of common ground and shared understanding between both of us during our meetings. Scott has had an incredibly positive impact on our football team.

“He has been instrumental in the development and success of a significant number of our veteran and younger players. He is an outstanding football coach, a great friend and we wish him and his family nothing but the absolute best moving forward.”

Reports say that the Cowboys have been looking at outside coordinator candidates for several days to take the spot that Linehan will leave behind, so this move obviously has been in the works.

Some say that Dallas’ offense isn’t creative enough for the linking of owner Jerry Jones, and with playmakers like Prescott and Elliott, they should be even better than what they are.

Jones got a chance to see a high-powered offense last week in the team that beat the Cowboys knocking them out of the postseason in the Los Angeles Rams, and he had to like what he saw from the likes of head coach Sean McVay, and would love to get a creative mind like that to run the Cowboys offense.

With a new voice coming in to run the show the offense should look different in 2019, but there’s always fear that the new voice won’t mesh with the big names on the teams’ offense.

Whoever the team decides on they have to make sure to get along with the threesome of Prescott, Elliott and Cooper, three players that will be the core of the Cowboys for hopefully a long time to come.

Look again for the team to try to find a young creative voice that will try to not only get the most of the threesome mentioned above, but the same with the teams offensive line.

Report: Cowboys to Give Head Coach Jason Garrett an Extension

The Cowboys are going to keep head coach Jason Garrett, which isn’t a surprise considering the team not only ended up winning the NFC East, but also have already gotten to the second round of the postseason.
Reports from the NFL Network state that “Garrett is likely to sign an extension whenever the offseason comes for the Cowboys, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Saturday morning. Dallas will make a strong attempt to lock him up.

“I’m told the Cowboys are positive that Garrett is going to be their coach going forward,” Rapoport said on Good Morning Football: Weekend, “and after the season when this all ends, they do intend to begin negotiating a long-term extension with Garrett.”

Garrett is under contract with the Cowboys through the 2019 season following an extension he signed in 2015 for five years and $30 million

The Cowboys rebounded from a rough start to the 2018 season, won the division with a solid second half, and beat the Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card game last weekend to advance to play the Rams tonight in Los Angeles in the Divisional round.
