Cowboys news not involving T.O.

New, comments

Could Keyshawn be headed to the NE Patriots? It makes a lot of sense as the Patriots have been hit hard in free agency, especially at WR.

From the Boston Hearld:

Reports out of Dallas said the former Jets and Buccaneers standout seeks a two-year contract worth between $2 million and $3 million annually. At age 34, he's nearing the end of the line, but he posted excellent numbers last year, catching 71 passes for 839 yards and six touchdowns.

The 6-foot-4, 214-pounder's style of play very much fits the Patriots mold - big, strong, tough and willing to block in the running game. He would provide an excellent complement to the smaller, speedier Branch.

If the Miami Dolphins swap out Olindo Mare for Mike Vanderjagt, then Dallas should be on top of that in a second. But there's conflicting stories about Mare's status in Miami.

From the Miami Herald:

A Dolphins source denied a published report that the team asked kicker Olindo Mare to take a pay cut and that he declined and asked to be released. All of that came in the wake of the Dolphins having Pro Bowl kicker Mike Vanderjagt in for a visit Monday.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus didn't seem terribly upset with the idea of Mare being possibly cut. ''Don't cry for Olindo if he gets let go,'' Rosenhaus said. ``There will be plenty of takers for him if he's out on the street.''

Mare is set to have a base salary of $1.4 million this season.

I was hoping the Cowboys would pursue Will Demps for the FS position. He's young but experienced, and I thought he might be an economical option. Too late, our NFC East brethren, the Giants, just picked him up. Chris Hope anyone?

From ESPN:

Continuing their offseason emphasis on adding both quality and quantity to the secondary, the New York Giants have reached contract agreement with unrestricted free agent safety Will Demps, a four-year veteran who had played his entire career with the Baltimore Ravens.

Demps will sign a five-year contract believed to be worth $10 million-$12 million.
