Three years after his first draft, Bill Parcells must re-evaluate his selections. That's because two of his better picks, TE Jason Witten and LB Bradie James, have voided the final years of their contracts, making them restricted free agents. Witten won't be going anywhere, however. The Cowboys will guarantee his services by offering the TE a first round tender plus $10, bumping his salary to $1.43 million. James might also require a similar tender, as his game has flourished this year.
Parcells also answered criticism about Julius Jones, saying the halfback has not lost speed. He had less praise for Anthony Henry, who has yet to regain his pre-groin- injury form.
