Wide receiver Miles Austin is finally in the fold.
Austin signed his restricted free agent tender of $3.168 million on Friday, becoming the last of the team's 12 restricted free agents to sign their one-year offer.
Austin decision to sign came just a few days before the June 15 deadline when the teams are allowed to reduce offers to restricted free agents who haven't signed to 110 percent of their 2009 salary.
Austin, who made $1.5 million last year, could have seen his salary reduced to about $1.7 million.
According to a source, the Cowboys never had any intention of doing so. Of course, Austin's signing renders the point moot.
Even though Austin is under contract for next season, the Cowboys will continue to explore a long-deal with the breakout receiver, who coach Wade Phillips described as a superstar on Friday.
Phillips said there has no concerns about Austin being a one-year wonder and believes he will build on last season's Pro Bowl campaign. Austin opened the season as the No. 3 receiver and didn't get his first start until the fifth game en route to setting career-highs in catches (81), yards (1,320) and touchdowns (11).
"He is confident now," Phillips said. "The only thing he lacked was confidence. Once you catch 80 something balls, you have that confidence. Has that now. He is a star receiver. But he is not pompous. He is determined to keep doing better."
