DeMarcus Lawrence gets $105 million payday from Cowboys

Recently Released S George Iloka Makes Since For Cowboys

Recently Released S George Iloka Makes Since For Cowboys

Per Archer's reports the new contract will be for five years and $105 million.

According to Rapoport, the two sides have already agreed on the basic parameters of the deal, with Lawrence receiving $65 million guaranteed. This should help the Cowboys free up money to sign their draft picks and possibly add a few depth pieces around the roster, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Flowers is a great player, but he has not produced at anywhere near the level Lawrence has since joining the Cowboys in 2014.

We won't have a Le'Veon Bell-type situation in Dallas this year now that Demarcus Lawrence got paid.

Though he'll get $31 million this year, that won't be his cap hit. Dallas hasn't advanced past the divisional round of the playoffs since the mid-'90s, but they appeared poised to do so a year ago before falling to the Los Angeles Rams.

Lawrence had been franchise tagged by Dallas for a second straight season and had until July 15 to work out a deal. He registered 10.5 sacks playing under the franchise tag in 2018.

The wait is over for DeMarcus Lawrence and the Dallas Cowboys.

Dallas selected the 27-year-old pass rusher out of Boise State with the No. 34 pick of the 2014 National Football League draft. With the recent trade for veteran defensive end Robert Quinn just last week, the Cowboys now have a dynamic duo of pass rushers who will be screaming off the edge and ruining the day for opposing quarterbacks this upcoming season. Teams won't be able to focus exclusively on Lawrence in their blocking schemes. Although the likelihood that they all get new deals this offseason is fairly low, the Lawrence extension should spark more.
