The Dallas Cowboys have done two things this offseason, add to the defensive line and to the quarterback position. On Wednesday afternoon, the team signed Caleb Hanie to a one-year contract to become the fourth quarterback on the roster. Hanie's signing is insurance if Kyle Orton, the current No. 2, retires or forces the team to release him. Orton has missed the early stages of the offseason program, which started on Monday. While those programs are voluntary, the quarterback should always be at these affairs.
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys will exercise the fifth-year option on Tyron Smith's deal in the near future, paying him $10.39 million in 2015 if they cannot reach a long-term agreement before then. What about the Cowboys' first-round pick in 2012, cornerback Morris Claiborne? As much as paying Smith is a sure thing, the decision with Claiborne's option in 2016 is as up in the air. They will have to make the decision by May 2015, which means Claiborne will have to answer a few questions first.
IRVING, Texas -- In his mock drafts, ESPN Insider Todd McShay has had the Dallas Cowboys sticking on the defensive side of the ball. In his four mock drafts, he has had Timmy Jernigan (twice), Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Stephon Tuitt going to the Cowboys in the first round. In his most recent Insider piece on ESPN.com , McShay mentioned prospects that might be the best fit with a team. After listing eight fits, which includes defensive tackle Aaron Donald going to the Chicago Bears (which might upset some Cowboys fans), he has pass rushers Dee Ford and Jeremiah Attaochu, as fits for the Cowboys in the second round.
