Cowboys tender Marion Barber at highest level, Chris Canty at next-highest

New, comments

The DMN blog has the news.

Todd Archer just passed along word that the Cowboys have tendered RB Marion Barber at the highest level, and placed the first-round tender on DE Chris Canty.

That means Barber has been offered a one-year, $2.562 million deal, and the Cowboys retain matching rights on any offer sheet presented to Barber. If the Cowboys were to decline matching an offer sheet, they'd receive first- and third-round picks in return.

Canty, meanwhile, has been offered a one-year, $2.017 million deal. The compensation for a team signing him away -- should the Cowboys decide not to match an offer -- would be a first-round pick.

Yes, smart move by the Cowboys. Now we are truly protected in regards to MB3.

We also didn't tender Tyson Thompson so he's an unrestricted free agent.
