The Cowboys have a lot of hurdles to overcome this offseason, many of which are contractual. Decisions need to be made regarding DeMarcus Lawrence and potentially both Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.

The NFL Combine gets underway this week and with it comes word from the Cowboys front office. Speaking to the media on Tuesday, Stephen Jones gave us some interesting tidbits of information.

An offer has been made to DeMarcus Lawrence

It should come as no surprise that the Cowboys have made an offer to Tank. Whether he accepts it or not will be the long process. There will likely be plenty of back and forth.

It’s likely going to take upwards of $20M per year to get Tank to sign a long-term contract considering that’s what he would make under the tag this year. That’s a lot of money.

The Cowboys want to pay Dak Prescott this offseason

Whether Dak gets paid seems to be more of a “when” question as opposed to an “if” one, and it seems as if that when is approaching rather soon. Stephen Jones also said that the Cowboys want to get a Dak deal done this offseason.

Get ready for some big numbers to show up sooner rather than later.

Update: 1:35pm ET

Stephen Jones also had a bit to say regarding Ezekiel Elliott, Sean Lee, Allen Hurns, and Cole Beasley.
