The Dallas Cowboys are still waiting to hear back from Doug Free regarding his contract situation. But that didn't prevent the right tackle from attending Wednesday's annual Cowboys Golf Classic at the Cowboys Golf Club. Free, who did not speak with reporters, took a minute to chat with Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones before posing for a photo, but it didn't appear like they were discussing the 28-year-old taking a pay cut. "We're trying to keep it to where it's not an issue," Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said. "He knows that and we want him here." Free is due to make 7 million during the 2013 season but after he struggled last year the Cowboys would like to reduce that number. Free and his agent Jimmy Sexton haven't agreed to any restructuring but Stephen Jones didn't seem concerned about the right tackle position going forward. "I think we're on the same page with Jimmy and Doug, as far as timing," Stephen Jones said. "We're positive. Hopefully he's positive and we're trying to work through it all." If something is not worked out with Free in the near future, the Cowboys could be forced to cut him and either sign a free agent or start Jermey Parnell, who split time with Free during the last month of the season. "I don't want to speculate," Stephen Jones said. "We're working on getting it worked out with Free." Speaking with reporters at a charity home run derby last week, Free responded, "I don't know anything about it" when asked about taking a pay cut. "Really nothing to talk about, right now," Free said. "There's a lot going on and stuff, but I'm just happy to be here."
