PLAYERS: Doug Free
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys

According to Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys have given offensive tackle Doug Free an option to either take a pay cut or be released. The Cowboys have presented him the option of taking a pay cut. They hope he accepts it. If he doesn’t, they’ll make him a post-June 1 cut and sign a right tackle in free agency. The top two candidates are Tyson Clabo and Eric Winston, but the Miami Dolphins are likely to sign one of them soon. And Clabo could be out of the Cowboys’ price range. Free would be smart to take a pay cut.  I can’t imagine him getting more money as a free agent.     Need NFL Tickets?
