Some quick stories for a Friday afternoon.
The official website has an article about DeMarcus Ware and James Harrison. The Steelers are trying to sign Harrison to an extension like the Cowboys are trying to do with Ware. Considering both players are OLB's in a 3-4 defense, finished 1 and 2 in the defensive Player of the Year award, and both basically wreak havoc in the opposing backfield, they have a lot of similarities. The Steelers are further along in their negotiations so Cowboys officials are keeping an eye on that outcome in terms of signing Ware. What kind of money are we talking about?
Last off-season Minnesota gave defensive end Jared Allen a six-year deal worth $74 million with just over $31 million guaranteed, and the year before that the Colts handed defensive end Dwight Freeney a six-year, $72 million deal.
The DMN blog takes a look at our offensive line in terms of personnel, offering hints at free agency and draft strategies.
Todd Archer talks Dallas' own free agents.
The T.O. show rolls on, this time SI.com's Don Banks is the conductor. The funniest thing about Banks' long article into the future of T.O. is that he has sources on both side of the issue. And they way they talk sounds just like the two camps on this blog. Very amusing.
