The next move the Cowboys made was a huge one. They signed defensive tackle Henry Melton to a one-year deal with a team option of three years. The first year is about 2.25 million with a cap number starting at 1.734 million.  Then the deal will be $9 million a year for the next three years, if he is still on the roster. That is a cheap deal for an impact defensive player that is only 27 years old. If he sucks this next year, cut him for little damage. If not, he is a good player on a defensive line that just got very young. Then the plan is to have them draft some young talent on defense, with new draft board guru in the front office, Will McClay.
