Cowboys Lock-Out Watch: Players, Owners Close To An Agreement

It’s been a quiet couple of days on the NFL labor front, and then just like that, word has come down that we might have an agreement on a new CBA very soon. Perhaps as early as tomorrow. Apparently, the threat of losing any portion of the profitable preseason was enough to light a fire under each side’s figurative backsides. The good news is that we are about to have something material to discuss about the Cowboys. The bad news is that the ‘Boys have a ton of tough decisions to make and they won’t have long to make them.

Above all the Cowboys are going to have to get under the new salary cap, which will reportedly be around $123 million. Also, there is the Doug Free element. More than likely, Free is going to be an outright free agent, and, obviously, they can’t afford to lose him. Hopefully, this will all be wrapped up tomorrow and we can move on to actual football. More to come in the morning…
