Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Doug Free

Tony Romo can breathe a sigh of relief and sleep a bit easier tonight. The Dallas Cowboys are set to re-sign Doug Free, who has agreed to a four year, 32 million dollar contract to remain a member of the Cowboys according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.The deal will reportedly contain 17 million dollars in guaranteed money. 

It had been believed that the Cowboys were going to be in somewhat of a bidding war with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - who have lots of money to spend and need to hit the salary floor. The Cowboys, though, will retain Free for the next four seasons.

Had the Cowboys lost out on Free, that would be potentially three members of the offensive line gone from the 2010 roster with Leonard Davis having been cut, and with Marc Colombo's future in question. 

Undoubtedly, this is huge for Dallas' offensive line as losing Free would have been extremely detrimental.
