Cowboys to talk contract with Lawrence next week

posted by Sports Desk -


The Dallas Cowboys and defensive end Demarcus Lawrence are expected to engage in contract talks next week, according to the Athletic.

Lawrence has been seeking a long-term contract but is set to play for just over $17 million in 2018 after the Cowboys slapped the franchise tag on him in March.

The clock is ticking on a deadline to reach a new term. All franchise-tagged players have until July 16 to sign a long-term contract with their current team.

Lawrence, who started all 16 games and amassed a career-high 14.5sacks in 2017, is seeking a five-year deal, the Athletic reported, citing a source.
