Cowboys Sign Sean Lee

According to Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas, the Dallas Cowboys and second round pick Sean Lee have come to terms on a four year contract on Friday.

Lee was the 55th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. With Lee signing, the Cowboys have now signed all seven of their draft choices from the 2010 Draft.


Cowboys Sign Supplemental Draft Pick Josh Brent

The Cowboys signed supplemental seventh rounder Josh Brent, a defensive lineman from Illinois, Thursday. Calvin Watkins:

The Cowboys have high hopes for Brent who is competing for a backup nose tackle spot with Junior Siavii. Brent, according to several scouts, has an excellent body and has shown some power when getting to the pass rusher. However, his off the field issues, kicked off the team for grades and had a DUI causes some concern with several teams.

Brent received a four year deal.


Dallas Cowboys Reach Agreement With First Round Pick Dez Bryant

The Cowboys and 24th overall pick Dez Bryant reached terms two days before the start of training camp. Bryant becomes the first first rounder to sign. Adam Schefter has the terms:

Numbers are in: Dez Bryant’s deal with Cowboys is a five-year, $11.8 million deal that includes $8.5 million guaranteed. More at

Dallas now has only second rounder Sean Lee remaining to sign.


Cowboys Sign Jamar Wall

The Dallas Cowboys and sixth round corner back Jamar Wall have reportedly agreed to a four year contract according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas.

Per Watkins:

Wall most likely will sign a four-year contract before he leaves for San Antonio.

The Cowboys are working on deals for nose tackle Josh Brent, wide receiver Dez Bryant and linebacker Sean Lee.

It seems Brent, who was selected in the seventh round of the suppemential draft will get done at some point before players are scheduled to report in San Antonio on Friday.


Cowboys Begin Negotiations With Dez Bryant

Three down, four to go. Draft picks signed by the Dallas Cowboys, that is. The Cowboys have inked deals with Sean Lissemore, Sam Young and Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, their seventh, sixth and fourth rounders respectively. Not surprisingly, the higher selected rooks are last in line to hammer out deals. That group includes first-round selection Dez Bryant, the immensely talented wide receiver out of Oklahoma State. Good news however. The Cowboys and Bryant’s agent have sat down at the table to begin the negotiation process.

Contract negotiations between the club and its first round draft pick began Monday. In past seasons, the Cowboys let the first round market develop before talks intensified. The Cowboys do not have that luxury this summer since it will be the first team to report to training camp.

No team in the league has signed a first round pick as the Cowboys prepare for their initial practice Saturday in San Antonio.

“We won’t have as much to go on,‘’ executive vice president Stephen Jones said when the Cowboys concluded mini-camp last month. "We usually have a lot more contracts to go off of. That will make it more challenging.’’

Throw in the fact that Bryant’s situation is a tad unique being that he didn’t play last year and it shouldn't come as much of a surprise if the process gets a bit messy before (hopefully) sorting itself out in the near future.


Cowboys Sign Fourth Rounder Akwasi Owusu-Ansah

Todd Archer reports that the Cowboys have signed their third draft pick, safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah.

But the question is when Owusu-Ansah will get on the field.

He did not take part in any off-season work because of shoulder surgery and he could be limited early in training camp. A cornerback at Indiana (Pa.), the Cowboys plan to use Owusu-Ansah at safety. He could also figure in as a return specialist.

Calvin Watkins has the terms:

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Owusu-Ansah accepted a four-year deal. He will earn base salaries of $320,000 (2010), $405,000 (2011), $490,000 (2012) and $575,000 (2013).

The club has first rounder Dez Bryant, second rounder Sean Lee, sixth rounder Jamar Wall, and supplemental seventh rounder Joshua Brent-Price still to sign.


Cowboys Sixth Rounder Sam Young Signs

Tim McMahon reports that Sam Young has signed, joining Sean Lissemore.

Offensive tackle Sam Young, a sixth-round pick, agreed to a four-year deal on the same day the Cowboys completed negotiations with seventh-round defensive lineman Sean Lissemore. Young received a $110,000 signing bonus, which was slightly higher than Lissemore’s bonus.


Dallas Cowboys Sign First Draft Pick: Sean Lissemore

Todd Archer reports that the Cowboys have signed seventh rounder Sean Lissemore to a four year deal, kicking off their efforts to get their picks into camp on time.

The Cowboys report to San Antonio for training camp on July 23 and will have their first practice inside the Alamodome on July 24. They still have to sign their remaining picks: Dez Bryant (first), Sean Lee (second), Akwasi Owusu-Ansah (fourth), Sam Young (sixth) and Jamar Wall (sixth).

Because camp starts a week earlier, the Cowboys have started their talks earlier than normal.
