New proposed CBA could pose problem for Cowboys with Free, Bowen and Hatcher set to be unrestricted free agents

Progress is being made between the owners and players on a new collective bargaining aggreement, according to multiple reports.

One issue that has supposedly already been decided is that players with four years experience will become unrestricted free agents. For the Cowboys, that means that tackle Doug Free and ends Stephen Bowen and Jason Hatcher will be free.

The Cowboys had given Free the top restricted free agent tender with draft pick compensation of a first and third round pick. Bowen and Hatcher received second round tenders.

Now all will be able to test the market and possibly sign with another team without the Cowboys getting anything.

 Vice-president Stephen Jones has said on more than one occasion that re-signing Free was a huge priority.

The problem now is how much you sign him for considering they drafted Tyron Smith in the first round to play left tackle if not this year than in the near future.

Free played left tackle for the Cowboys last year and would draw considerably more money on the free agent market as a possible left tackle. The Cowboys will likely have to pay Free left tackle money to keep him.

The problem at defensive end is just as serious for the Cowboys, who just have one veteran end under contract in Igor Olshansky. The Cowboys had hoped to bring both Hatcher and Bowen back with the restricted free agent tender.

Now it's possible they could lose both, as well as former starter Marcus Spears who is already and unrestricted free agent.

The Cowboys need to add at least two veteran players at the position whether it's one of these three or a combination of one and someone from the outside.

Keep in mind that Hakeem Nicks did not play in the first matchup. He’s a tough cover on the outside. And the Giants at times feature “3 x 1” sets with Nicks the single receiver to one side and 3 other receivers to the opposite side, one of those being Cruz in the slot. wholesale kids jersey
It is possible to take away 2 receivers on any given snap. Belichick will have a great feel for the Giants route combinations based on receiver distribution and location: that is, how many receivers align to each side, and who those receivers are. That’s how coverages, especially zone concepts, are often designed and executed. nfl kids jersey sale
Belichick understands he is limited from a personnel standpoint in the secondary. He must camouflage, and compensate for that liability. If Edelman is the slot corner in Super Bowl 46, and I’m not convinced he will be, you can be sure you will not see many snaps of man coverage. That’s a risky proposition. wholesale nfl kids jersey
In trying to get a handle on the Cruz matchup, I keep coming back to a concept Belichick has used effectively in the past. I call it the “bullseye” approach. cheap nfl kids jersey

For the Cowboys, that means that tackle Doug Free and ends Stephen Bowen and Jason Hatcher will be free.

The Cowboys had hoped to bring both Hatcher and Bowen back with the restricted free agent tender.

jerah is the unofficial commissioner of the nfl, anything in the new cba, i guarantee u that jerah will b prepared 4. jerah will b 1 of the authors of the new cba and will hav an inside track of what the new cba entails prior 2 the new cba being ratified by the nflpa.

good, Thank you for share!

Smith is a tough guy.

A friend in need is a friend indeed

This is an advantage for the cowboys that got a #9 draft pick. We are going to change faces big time if this happens. But, just imagine us hitting the jets, raivens, texans, and jets/giants.
It will be like Christmas because with an unlimited cap and the players getting 48% of revenue, Ryan will have the best defense in the league.
This is all based on the situation as presented.

The Cowboys had given Free the top restricted free agent tender with draft pick compensation of a first and third round pick.
it is a good news

Cowboys PR department said that in the collective bargaining agreement, there is a salary that correlates with a draft round.
