Just CHILL: Sensabaugh to sign tender soon, still hoping for long-term deal

Clarence Hill
Safety Gerald Sensabaugh and receiver Miles Austin still have yet to sign their restricted-free agent tenders as they continue to hold out hope for long term contract extensions.
Both, however, are working out with the team and participating in the off season programs and OTA's despite not being under contract. But that's where the similarities end in their approach to their contract situations.
Asked about his negotiations, Austin refers all questions to his agent David Dunn and owner Jerry Jones. He said he's only concerned with working hard and trying to get better.
He refuses to answer any pointed questions about his contract status. Austin has been offered a one-year contract tender of $3.1 million. He has yet to sign and has given no indication that he will do so before June 15 when the Cowboys can rescind their tender offers and simply pay a player 110 percent of his previous year’s salary.
The deadline is the same for Sensabaugh, who has to sign his $1.8 million tender. Sensabaugh however said he plans to show good faith and sign his tender soon, "putting the ball in the Cowboys court".
He said it's his understanding that he will get a new long-term deal "before the start of the season". If not, he said he "will not talk about the contract during the season."
