The Dallas Cowboys have decided not to tender a contract to restricted free agent Sterling Moore. This is somewhat surprising considering that Moore was a solid replacement last season and would come at a relatively cheap price. When you throw in the uncertainty with Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne at corner, you would have thought that this was a no-brainer for the Cowboys. Instead, Moore is free to shop his services around to any NFL team in free agency.
The Cowboys did tender contracts to two other restricted free agents. Running back Lance Dunbar and punter Chris Jones each received offers at $1.542 million. Neither tender is guaranteed money and because both players were undrafted free agents, if they sign elsewhere Dallas would not receive draft pick compensation in return. Dunbar has been full of potential in Dallas, but has yet to realize all of that talent on the field. He's in the mold of a typical third down, change-of-pace back but last year DeMarco Murray dominated the carries so Dunbar saw limited action.
