Cowboys free agency rumor tracker: News, signings, cuts and more

Cowboys deal numbers for Cameron Fleming are in.

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys have already made some of moves. The big one was slapping the franchise tag on defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence. This will cost the Cowboys over $17 million in 2018, but worth it to keep the guy who racked up 14.5 sacks in 2017.

The Cowboys also have reportedly brought back defensive tackle Brian Price on a two-year deal. He adds insurance at the 1-tech position.

The Cowboys created a little room on the salary cap by releasing Benson Mayowa and Joe Vellano.
