Cowboys sign Andre Gurode to new contract

Sweet! The Cowboys got one of their free agents wrapped up.

The Dallas Cowboys, fresh off their hiring of head coach Wade Phillips as Bill Parcells' replacement, resolved their top free agent priority by reaching agreement on a six-year deal with center Andre Gurode.

Terms on the contract were not immediately available, but it is safe to assume Gurode has become one of the highest-paid centers in the league. The start of free agency is only two weeks away and Gurode and New York Giants center Shaun O'Hara were going to be a hottest free agents at their position. To get Gurode off the market, the Cowboys had to strike the right kind of deal and did just that.

I feel better now; I didn't want to spend free agency with a hole at center that needed to be resolved. Gurode had a nice year and hopefully our line can go into 2007 with some continuity. Now, we need to get Marc Colombo under contract.
