Things are starting to happen on many different fronts for the Cowboys, but the front they seem to be concentrating on is the defensive one.

Today, the Cowboys agreed to terms with defensive tackle Terrell McClain from Houston and defensive end Jeremy Mincey from Denver. We'll have breakdowns on both players later today, but follow this link for a preliminary look.

Also happening today, the great one, DeMarcus Waregot his money from the Denver Broncos. It's sad it came to this, but the Broncos are chasing a Super Bowl and threw a lot of cash Ware's way for 2014.

The Cowboys have made noise about retaining Jason Hatcher, but that's looking harder and harder to do. Hatcher has already been in Seattle, will visit Oakland and Tennessee. It's also believed he has meetings lined up with two more teams. Somewhere along the way he almost assuredly will get the money he's seeking, or close to it.

The Cowboys have expressed interest in two other defensive tackles, Henry Melton and now Tony McDaniel. Melton is meeting with the Vikings on Thursday, so we'll have to watch closely and see if he gets out of there without a contract.

[UPDATE] Looks like McDaniel will re-sign with Seattle.

According to Adam Schefter of, the Seahawks have reached an agreement with defensive tackle Tony McDaniel.


As for Tony McDaniel, the odds are he re-signs with Seattle considering they lost Clinton McDonald and cut Chris Clemons, but the Cowboys are kicking the tires. A brief bio on McDaniel.

McDaniel, 29, became a full-fledged starter for the first time in his career last season during the Seahawks' Super Bowl run. He recorded two sacks and 53 tackles, earning plaudits for his work in run defense.

McDaniel signed with Seattle as a free agent in 2013 after spending the previous four seasons in Miami as a reserve.
