Along with many other teams in the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys have several important contract decisions to make in the near future. As you learn from watching free agency unfold, smart negotiating of long-term contracts is vital for teams to have lasting success.
The next round of contracts the Cowboys hand out will be of extreme importance because of the caliber of players whose contracts are being renegotiated. Each of these players will be making significantly more than they are currently and will most likely be signing multiyear deals. Dallas must be smart in giving its players what they deserve, while not overextending itself and constricting future signings.
