DeMarcus Lawrence, Dallas Cowboys Agree to Contract

2019 Draft Guide

He also reportedly planned to delay the shoulder surgery he needs until a long-term resolution was reached, which could explain why there was urgency to reach a deal now and not closer to the July 15 deadline.

The Cowboys used the franchise tag on Lawrence earlier this year, though the defensive end made clear he wanted a long-term deal in order to show up to training camp.

Lawrence tweeted soon after news of the agreement broke, saying "New Number Who Dis?"

The first time Dallas placed a tag on Lawrence in 2018 was to see if he could repeat his impressive production from the previous year, when he had 35 tackles and 14.5 sacks. He recorded his second straight double-digit season in sacks with 10 1/2 after finishing tied for second in the National Football League in 2017 with 14 1/2 sacks.

The "impasse" in contract negotiations between the Dallas Cowboys and their star pass rusher, Demarcus Lawrence has officially ended with a bang. Khalil Mack's six-year, $141 million contract and $90 million guarantee still dwarfs that of Lawrence in terms of AAV (average annual value) and guaranteed money.

Complicating this entire process has been the matter of Lawrence's shoulder, which now requires surgery. In 2018, Lawrence appeared in all 16 games and recorded 64 tackles, 10.5 sacks, 1 interception, 2 forced fumbles, a recovery and a pass defense. Then he had just one sack in 2016, after missing the first four games of the season because of a suspension.

Cooper, Prescott and Jones are signed through 2019, and Elliott can be under contract through 2020, thanks to the fifth-year option the team will exercise later this spring. Now that it's ready to roll and Lawrence will be with the Cowboys for the long term, though, it's time to evaluate the signing by giving it a grade.
