The Dallas Cowboys and head coach Jason Garrett are closing in on a five-year deal worth $30 million. Coming off one of the most successful Cowboys seasons in recent memory, Garrett definitely warrants the pay day. Many experts predicted the Cowboys to flop in 2014, but instead went 11-5, a NFC East crown and were an idiotic league rule away from playing in the NFC Championship and Garrett a Coach of the Year candidate.
Now that Garrett and defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli locked up Jerry Jones can turn his attention to Dez Bryant. They may just decide to franchise-tag him, but why not lock him up now and avoid harder negotiations? Also, Jones has to make a decision on Demarco Murray who is set hit unrestricted free agency.
Murray was a huge reason for the Cowboys turn around, but sadly in the NFL running backs are given the least value. Don’t be surprised if they let him walk and spend money on a Ndamukong Suh or…..an Adrian Peterson maybe. Jones and Peterson already had that conversation.
That’s all in the near future. Today Jones did good locking up his foundation. Now comes the hard part.
