Deadline today for Marion Barber and Chris Canty

It’s deadline day for a couple of Cowboys. If anybody is going to try and sign MB3 or Chris Canty away, they better get the move on.

Today is the deadline for Cowboys restricted free agents Marion Barber and Chris Canty to sign offer sheets with other teams. At 3 p.m., if the players haven't signed offer sheets, Dallas will retain exclusive negotiating rights with those players.

Canty plans to sign his offer after the deadline passes; MB3 and the Cowboys are in the process of negotiating a long-term deal, but are not that close yet.

Also, Matt Mosley reminds us that Ken Hamlin is one of five franchise players who have yet to sign deals. Hamlin and the Cowboys have until July 15th to get a long-term deal done, after that, he can only sign a one-year deal.

Oh yeah, we signed our other RFA today.

The team's third restricted free agent, center/guard Joe Berger, signed his one-year, $927,000 tender with the team Thursday, according to agent Tom Tafelski.

Jason Witten receives a honor.

Witten will be honored at the Greater Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame Dinner and Induction Ceremony on July 17 at the Knoxville Convention Center.
