Cowboys Blog - Dallas Cowboys Sign Tyrone Crawford To Long-Term Contract 1

The 2015 Dallas Cowboys season kicks off on Sunday Night! Exciting, right?

What's even more exciting is the hot-off-the-press news that the Dallas Cowboys have signed Defensive Tackle Tyrone Crawford to a long-term contract for 5 years worth $45 million.

UPDATE: According to Cowboys Insider Mike Fisher, Crawford's deal is actually for 6 years with $45.675 million available.

Here's what sources tell me = Tyrone Crawford SIX YR #Cowboys deal @1053thefan

Taken in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Boise State, Tyrone really broke out last season as the Cowboys broke out as NFC contenders. He was an integral piece to the team that won the NFC East, and under Rod Marinelli's guidance Crawford was in the face of many opposing quarterbacks.

The Cowboys have made it very obvious that the trenches are the priority for them as it is no secret how they have bolstered the offensive line. The Crawford signing helps anchor the defensive line and ensures the future of it. Tyrone figures to have an even better season in 2015 than he did in 2014 and is starting to get that hype on a national level.

The long-term signing of Crawford means that the Dallas Cowboys now have him, DeMarcus Lawrence, and Randy Gregory under contract until at least 2017. This is a a very young, very talented, and very aggressive core of a defense.

This signing also indicates that the Cowboys consider Crawford to be an essential part of their team. Typically at this time of year extensions are given to players of that caliber - for instance AJ Green of the Cincinnati Bengals agreed to a new contract on Friday.

Teams are looking to lock up their most important and most valuable pieces before the season begins so that they can have all of that under wraps as they hunt for a championship. With Tyrone Crawford now taken care of, the Cowboys are going hunting for Super Bowl #6.

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for 2018

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladoucer for 2018 1

Continuity is the key to good special teams play in the NFL. Already losing long-time Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia to the Raiders - who promptly snatched ST aces Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber in free agency - the Dallas Cowboys have announced their intentions to re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for the 2018 season.

Returning on a one-year deal, the fan favorite Ladouceur will be back to do what he does best in cleanly executing almost every special teams snap for Chris Jones or Dan Bailey to handle.

Todd Archer on Twitter

Long snapper L.P. Ladouceur will re-sign with the Cowboys on Monday, according to sources, on a one-year deal. He will be in his 14th season with the franchise. Only Jason Witten, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei will have more years of...

While Jones has improved as the Cowboys' punter with each passing season, Kicker Dan Bailey actually enters 2018 as another question mark on this unit. With the general belief around the team being that Bailey will be just fine moving forward, the Cowboys will no longer have to worry about who handles long snaps next year either.

Report: Raiders Sign Former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber

Kevin Brady



Cowboys Headlines - Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Linebacker Kyle Wilber

A Free Agency period filled with departures continued for the Dallas Cowboys today, as the Oakland Raiders have reportedly signed the now-former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber.


The Raiders have signed LB Kyle Wilber:

Wilber has been with the Cowboys since 2012, and has played in all 16 games four of the past five seasons. Most of his time has come on special teams, but he did provide solid linebacker depth for the Cowboys since joining the team.

Dallas has now lost both Wilber and Anthony Hitchens, depleting their linebacker depth even further over the last couple weeks.

The Raiders have now signed two key special teams contributors for the Cowboys in Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber this offseason. Hopefully Dallas can replace these types of "replacement level" players throughout the rest of the offseason, especially during the NFL Draft.

Report: Cowboys Officially Release CB Orlando Scandrick

Kevin Brady



Orlando Scandrick

After requesting his release from the team just a few days ago, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has gotten his wish. According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Scandrick has officially been cut by the Dallas Cowboys.

Josina Anderson on Twitter

I'm told the #Cowboys have informed CB Orlando Scandrick he will be released, per source.

This move will reportedly save the Cowboys roughly $1.4M against the salary cap, as we hope they finally look to make some moves during the Free Agency period.

Scandrick's release comes after an offseason in which the Cowboys totally overhauled the back end of their defense, specifically their cornerbacks. With the emergence of young, promising players such as Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis, and the health issues of the aging Scandrick, the move makes a lot of sense.

In fact, after the Cowboys drafted Awuzie in the second round of last year's draft it was rumored the Cowboys were looking to move Scandrick for extra draft picks. Instead, one year later, they have cut him to save some cap room.

Orlando Scandrick should have a market to find a new team elsewhere, but his time in Dallas has now come to a close.
