The draft is finally behind us. How did everybody do? Bucky Brooks breaks out the red pen and grades all 32 teams by division. More ...
Free has refused a pay cut thus far, and there's no reason to believe that stance will change. In fact, a source close to Free tells Mike Fisher of CBSDFW.com that the right tackle "anticipates not being with the Cowboys" as of June 1. Contrary to the report, however, the team can release Free at any point and still designate him a June 1 cut to apply the savings to this year's salary cap.
Another source predicted to Fisher that Clabo would settle for a one-year contract at $4 million. If Free would accept a restructured contract in that range, he could save his roster spot.
If the Cowboys don't make a decision soon, they risk losing both Clabo and Winston as fallback options.
