Report: Cowboys give big contract to Doug Free

For the Cowboys, it seems like the starting offensive line is falling into place quite nicely.

After telling RT Marc Colombo the club would be cutting him, Dallas shored up the tackle position Tuesday night by, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports, agreeing to terms with Doug Free on a contract worth four years and $32 million ($17 million of that is guaranteed).

As CBSSports.com’s Andy Benoit told you after the draft, the plan for Dallas was to get rid of the “slow-footed” Colombo. Then, the Cowboys would use their first-round pick Tyron Smith at the other tackle spot opposite Free.

And that’s exactly what seems to be happening (assuming Smith signs his contract as well).

Not like Dallas had any choice on this one....Free is a good tackle, not great but good.  They needed him more than he needed them. At $8mill per season Dallas did well as Free could have gotten at least that amount elsewhere if not more.  They couldn't risk letting him go and having a rookie protect Romo's blind side.

Who the hell is Doug Free?  Is he the guy who jacked up the seating for the superbowl?
