Restricted free agents Marion Barber and Chris Canty have until 3 p.m. to sign offer sheets with other teams before the Dallas Cowboys have full negotiating rights.
It would be highly unlikely either player leaves. For Barber, a team would have to give up a 1st and 3rd round picks. For Canty, they would have to give up a 1st-round pick. Dallas can outbid any bid for these players. According to the Dallas Morning News , basically Barber’s agent Drew Rosenhaus, is out of his mind and asking for way too much to keep Barber. The Cowboys might be closer with Canty.
According to sources, the Cowboys and Barber remain far apart in negotiations on a long-term deal. The team and Canty’s representatives have discussed an extension. Canty plans to sign the tender shortly after the deadline passes.
