Contract Talks With Ken Hamlin Heat Up

Dallas Cowboys safety Ken Hamlin, who was given the franchise tag this year, may get a long-term deal. This is great news for the secondary and the team as a whole. Hamlin was a pleasant surprise this year.

Reports are that Hamlin’s agent, Kennard McGuire, met with the Cowboys brass Tuesday.

“We both want to make sure we give him the security that he not only deserves, but that the Cowboys get the player that helps them stabilize what they’re doing,” McGuire told the Star-Telegram.

As the franchise tag player, Hamlin was to receive $4.396 for this coming season. In his first year as a Cowboy, he made the Pro Bowl with 62 tackles, 15 passes defended and five interceptions.  I’d say that’s pretty darn good.

I really like how the Cowboys are shoring up the team with current players who performed well, instead of searching for answers in the free agent pool. Granted, we have criticized the Cowboys for a slow offseason, but when it comes down to it, we have a spectacular team to support this season.

I hope the Cowboys can get Hamlin signed to a five-year deal to solidify an important piece to what we all hope becomes an improved secondary.
