Dallas Cowboys Headlines: Tagging Lawrence, Calvin Ridley falling?
The real kickoff to the offseason is rumored to be happening soon with the use of the franchise tag. We’ll cover that and much more in today’s Dallas Cowboys headlines.
Coming off a 13-3 season in 2016, the Dallas Cowboys had Super Bowl aspirations going into last year. Unfortunately, suspensions, injuries and inconsistent play plagued America’s Team leaving them out of the playoff hunt at 9-7.

Mailbag: Securing a Long-Term Deal With Lawrence? Intriguing Futures Players? – DallasCowboys.com
On the Dallas Cowboys official site, both Bryan Broaddus and David Helman mention a player whom I think many fans are forgetting about. And that’s cornerback Marquez White. The sixth rounder spent his entire rookie season on the practice squad. But I believe this kid has the ability to make the active roster in 2018.
