Colombo glad to be locked up

The Cowboys made a commitment to right tackle Marc Colombo on Wednesday, as he signed a big Christmas Eve gift with a four-year, $22 million contract.

Colombo, who signed through 2012, has resurrected his career in Dallas after battling injuries with Chicago and has become a consistent player. The Cowboys were going to extend him once he proved himself and he has done it.

"I am just excited to be able to stay here with my teammates," Colombo said. "It is a relief to have this finished and now I can focus completely on football. This is a place I love. This is where I got my second chance."

Colombo agreed to the contract a few weeks back, but some contact language was still being workout out.

This is key. I agree that Columbo has earned his contract. Yes, he will commit a hold or false start sometimes, but sometimes I think he is the only one out there that will punch back when punched. This maybe our toughest player aside from Jason Witten. Now if we could just get the left side fixed.
