The Dallas Cowboys have extended a tender offer to their only restricted free agent, safety and special teams ace Danny McCray, an offer worth a reported $1.323 million.
McCray finished 2012 with 71 tackles (one for a loss)--second only to outside linebacker Anthony Spencer--while starting in 10 games, an opportunity afforded the usually sparsely used McCray by the wave of injuries that hit the Dallas defense throughout the year. He also broke up a pair of passes and recorded an interception.
McCray was also the team’s second-leading special teams tackler, with 18.
Per the language of restricted free agency, Dallas will have the opportunity to match any offer given McCray by another team. However, as Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas points out, the team would receive no compensation if McCray were to go elsewhere.
