News broke earlier today that Justin Durant had agreed on a two year deal with the Cowboys according to Adam Shefter from ESPN. However shortly thereafter reports started to emerge that this was indeed not the case. Clarence E. Hill from ESPNDallas tweeted that this is against the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
It is a well known fact that Cowboys haven’t made any headway with potential extensions with Romo or Spencer. Once either or both of these deals are finalized then the Cowboys can pursue the Durant deal. If there isn’t any immediate progress, Doug Free could be released to open up $7 million in cap space.
