Dallas Cowboys Reach 2 Year Deal with DT Brian Price

Brian Price

The 2018 NFL free agency "tampering" period is officially open, which means little to the Dallas Cowboys when it comes to significantly improving their roster. Instead, the Cowboys have used free agency to add quality depth and fill holes before the draft, doing so today by re-signing 1T DT Brian Price to a two-year deal worth $1.35 million.

Todd Archer on Twitter

The deal @maxsportsSA reported as agreed upon between the Cowboys and DT Brian Price is now signed. It's a two-year deal worth $1.35 million with no bonus. Price was an exclusive rights free agent.

Brian Price was added to the Cowboys' roster just before the regular season, claimed off waivers after being with the Green Bay Packers. With the Packers, Price flashed some disruptive ability at the 1T position - where a void was left in Dallas by the surprising release of Cedric Thornton.

Playing in just eight games before suffering a season-ending knee injury, Price showed enough to return to the Cowboys for 2018 as depth at 1T. The man behind signings like these -- Stephen Jones -- has already said the Cowboys wouldn't prioritize drafting a 1T DT in the first round unless they offered the versatility to play 3T.

A rotation of Brian Price, Maliek Collins, Lewis Neal, and a later round draft pick may be what the Cowboys are looking at to strengthen the interior of their defensive line. A decision on the tendering of RFA David Irving should soon follow this Price signing, as Irving could return to start alongside any of these one techniques at the pass rushing three technique spot.

    HOpe this doesn’t stop them from addressing the position in the draft.

    • Hector Espindola

      Something tells me that the adressing will come at later rounds of the draft, unless Da’Ron is on the clock and the FO values him as a 1T with versatility to play 3T.

      • Reynaldo Laporte

        It saddens me nonetheless!!!! The last time we had a NT worth his salt was Ratliff and he was an overachiever.

        We need someone who can collapse the pocket and keep our LB’s clean. Im curious to see what we do in the upcoming weeks, but I’d be lying if I said didn’t s strange case of deja vu.

        • https://InsideTheStar.com Sean Martin

          I said this on Twitter as well, but I’m fine with a rotation of Price, Collins, and Neal at 1T. Enough to not spend a top pick on another devalued position.

      • https://InsideTheStar.com Sean Martin

        Bingo.

  • Reynaldo LaPorte

    With all due respect I vehemently disagree. Collins filled in admirably and even played well while hurt but his natural position is the 3. Price is a pure 1 tech and fits Rod’s orphan (I hate that name btw) role to a tee. I’m not saying we need to address DT with our first pick, but we have neglected our defense for too long.

      I just realized we had the same birthday.

      • https://InsideTheStar.com Sean Martin

        I think they’re committed to Collins playing the 1 anyway, which he can handle. No better birthday! That’s so awesome

        • Reynaldo Laporte

          I was a wee lad, but I remember the last time we won a SB. We had a legit defense and a legit 1 tech by the name of Russell Maryland.

          Whatever they do as long as we come out of the draft/FA with LB,LG,WR filled I’m good. These guys better be dogs too.

  • Travis Diggs

    This is the most excitement we’ll get from free agency this year, free agency sucks for cowboys fans

    • Reynaldo Laporte

      I understand the philosophy FA wise, but sometimes you have to make power moves. If we get Davis from the Jets I will be ecstatic and surprised.

      We have been real quiet so who knows.

  • winstar

    To lazy to look….Isn’t Ash still on the team? I’m with Reynaldo, we need a big knuckle dragging monster to push the pocket and keep the LB’s clean. It will also help Lawrence.

Report: QB Dak Prescott Signs Multi-Year Deal With Campbell’s Chunky Soup

Jekyll or Hyde: Year 3 "Prove It" Season For Dak Prescott? 1

Being the Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback comes with its challenges, but it certainly comes with its perks as well. One of those perks is the opportunity for endorsement deals, and income outside of his football salary.

Dak Prescott is embracing those perks now, reportedly signing a multi-year deal with Campbell's Chunky Soup through 2020. Prescott will continue to endorse Chunky MAXX, Campbell's protein soup line.

Brandon George on Twitter

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has re-signed a new multi-year deal with Campbell's Chunky Soup through 2020. This is the first QB multi-year deal for Chunky Soup since Donovan McNabb in 2001. He'll continue to promote Chunky MAXX, the protein-packed line of soups, this year, per Edelman

Campbell's Soup has had some legendary football related commercials throughout the years, none more memorable than those with former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb and his mother.

In fact, Dak Prescott is the first NFL quarterback to sign a multi-year deal with Campbell's Chunky Soup since those McNabb commercials.

Hopefully, Dak Prescott can continue to "prove it" on the field and still be the Cowboys starting quarterback throughout this entire Campbell's deal.

BREAKING: David Irving Suspended For 2nd Consecutive Year

David Irving

For the second consecutive year, Defensive Lineman David Irving is being suspended for four games by the NFL. This time, the suspension comes after Irving violated the NFL's policy on substance of abuses, as Ian Rapoport reported.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter

Cowboys DL David Irving is being suspended 4 games for violating @NFL policy on substance of abuses, sources say. Another big-time D-linemen hit with a suspension for Dallas.

Irving will play for the Dallas Cowboys after the team placed a second-round tender on him earlier in the year. Why no team was interested in picking such a talented defensive tackle for a second round pick is becoming clearer and clearer as the time goes on.

In April, when David Irving got hacked by his former girlfriend one of the tweets that stood out the most was one which said "Wait until you all find about his failed drug tests." Now, we're seeing what the tweet was about.

Irving is a very talented player that could have a great career ahead of him. Of course, with this being the second consecutive year in which he receives a suspension to start the season, one could question how much he wants it.

The Cowboys will play the Panthers, Giants, Seahawks and Lions to start the season. They'll have to do it with one of their most promising defensive players in David Irving.

Here at Inside The Star, we'll keep you updated with this story and every Dallas Cowboys news.

Jason Witten’s Lasting Message to Cowboys TE Rico Gathers

Cowboys 2016 Draft Class: Who Will Be The Stand Out In 2017?

When Dallas Cowboys legend Jason Witten retired from the NFL last month, he left behind an unproven group of tight ends for the Cowboys to field as Witten moves on to the Monday Night Football broadcast booth. This is not a TE group short of potential, although that's nothing new for the laundry list of players that have failed at the position behind the Hall of Fame bound Witten.

Headlining this group of potential heirs to Witten has to be 2016 draft pick Rico Gathers. Not yet given the same opportunities that Geoff Swaim and Blake Jarwin are receiving through the Cowboys ongoing mini camp, Gathers has been criticized for his commitment to his team.

Looking to make the transition from the basketball court at Baylor to the football field, Gathers' journey began at Witten's soon-to-be home forever. Playing his first organized football game since middle school, Gathers and Witten were teammates in the Hall of Fame game at Canton, Ohio in 2017.

A game rarely leaving fans with a lasting memories, Gathers immediately flashed potential in the passing game, hauling in three passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Gathers would go on to spend the season on IR after a concussion suffered in practice, recovering from it in time to return but never seeing the field.

This leaves Gathers' prospects of putting it all together in year three at a difficult crossroads. It will be hard to question Gathers' commitment moving forward, as the message from his former teammate Jason Witten still lives with him.

Jason Witten's Lasting Message to Cowboys TE Rico Gathers

If Witten truly sees a "bright future" for Rico Gathers, who Head Coach Jason Garrett says needs work in the running game, there is no reason the Cowboys can't find a role for him this season. With an entirely unproven group of wide receivers, Gathers could be the reliable mismatch for Dak Prescott to target in the middle of the field.

Prescott was the ninth worst quarterback in the league last season in red zone completion percentage, surely something the 6'6" TE Gathers could help improve.

Gathers may be a long way off from becoming Prescott's version of Witten to Tony Romo, but there is still hope for the 2016 draft pick, according to now football analyst Jason Witten.
