Jerry: Free Situation is Complicated

Dallas has asked RT Doug Free to either take a pay cut or risk being released



    The Dallas Cowboys are still waiting on an answer from right tackles Doug Free.

    It was about three weeks ago that the Cowboys asked Free, who is coming off the worst season of his career, to either take a pay cut or risk being released. Free and his camp have yet to get back to the team regarding that matter, leaving us folks in Dallas to wonder.

    Owner and general manager Jerry Jones sounds like he’s doing the same, telling reporters last week that the situation with the veteran right tackle is a complicated one.

    "A lot of moving parts with Doug and there is some competitive aspect of the thing going and coming here as well with other clubs," Jones said, per ESPN Dallas. "We certainly have for the right situation, have a way here that Doug in my mind (can) flourish and it has to do with [Jermey] Parnell being here as well."

    Free finished 2012 splitting time with Parnell. He is due a base salary of $7 million in 2013, which would make him the highest paid right tackle in the game.
