Vice-president Stephen Jones said the Cowboys have not yet approached wide receiver Dez Bryant or tackle Tyron Smith about contract extensions.
Both are in the final year of their rookie contracts.
Jones said the team’s cap issues have nothing to do with it, as they are simply taking their time in assessing their priorities.
But Jones there is no debating the Cowboys' plans to keep Bryant and Smith around for years to come. Both made Pro Bowl in 2013 for the first team and are considered cornerstone players for the Cowboys.
“We plan on keeping Dez and Tyron around here, barring something unforeseen, for quite a long time,” Jones said. “They are not getting out of here.”
