The Valley Ranch Review: Cowboys, Miles Austin looking at multi-year deal

The Dallas Cowboys and Miles Austin are trying to work out a multi-year deal before, or even after, he signs his tender.

The wild card is Austin, who is in the process of negotiating a multiyear contract extension with the Cowboys. Austin could wait until the two sides come to an agreement on an extension or he could sign the tender and continue negotiating the extension.

The football world is saddened by the announced retirement of John Madden. Jerry Jones spoke about Madden's influence on the game.

"I don't know that I've ever met anyone who loves the NFL, or cares about the NFL, more than John Madden. As a friend, I know that John's respect and passion for the sport will be the two elements of his legacy that matter the most to him," Jones said. "His imprint and impact on our game were powerful and meaningful. His influence on the sport was felt by everyone-the guys in the equipment room, the players, the coaches, the owners, and most importantly, the fans. He's going out on top-as the best we have-and the best we have ever had."

Jerry Jones met with Houston OT Sebastian Vollmer on Wednesday night.

On Thursday, Ohio State wide receiver Brian Robiskie visited Valley Ranch. He just might be available when Dallas picks at 51.

Todd Archer sees a need for the Cowboys to bring in pass rushers during this year's draft.

Boldin to the Eagles? Braylon to the Giants? Vice Versa? Eli Manning seems to think that the Giants' management will pursue a trade for a #1 receiver.

"They know we have some good receivers here, some young guys who can play football for us, but that we might need a No. 1 receiver. So I think that's what they're going to look for right now and I'm sure something will happen either during the draft or before the draft or right near it to help us out."
