The wait continues as the Cowboys and Zack Martin try to reach a deal.

The Cowboys are trying to get a long-term deal done with all-everything right guard Zack Martin. Per reports, the two sides are talking, but Martin and the Cowboys are still a bit apart on a new deal.

Stephen Jones said that the Cowboys believe Zack Martin is the best guard in the league. This is a fair claim and one that’s hard to refute, unless you’re the “indisputable” NFL Top 100 where he ranked 71st.

Unlike his fellow first-round offensive line counterparts Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick, Zack didn’t have his big-time deal entering his fourth season with the Cowboys. Times change as do contract structures around an entire team so there still isn’t any need to worry.

This is simply a matter of continuing to wait. Zack Martin isn’t going anywhere. He’ll continue to miss the voluntary part of the offseason while waiting for the deal to come. Hopefully, the two sides can come to agreement before the start of training camp, when things get real.
