Dallas Optimistic About Free

The Cowboys are still waiting for talks to resume with right tackle Doug Free



    It’s been nearly a month since the Dallas Cowboys asked right tackle Doug Free to either take a pay cut or risk being released by the team, but they still haven’t heard back. Nonetheless, the Cowboys remain positive about their relationship with Free and his agent, Jimmy Sexton.

    I think we’re on the same page with Jimmy and Doug, as far as timing,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We’re positive. Hopefully he’s positive and we’re trying to work through it all.”

    Whether Dallas wants Free back in the fold in 2013 doesn’t seem to be much of a question.

    “We’re trying to keep it to where it’s not an issue,” Jones said. “He knows that and we want him here.”
