Cowboys expect Free, McClain, Claiborne healthy for training camp
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

When the Cowboys kick off training camp next month, the team is expecting veterans Doug Free, Rolando McClain and Morris Claiborne to be healthy enough to participate, reports The Dallas Morning News.

All three have been limited during the offseason because of various aliments. Free dealt with a foot injury last season and Claiborne was bothered by a torn patellar tendon. Meanwhile, McClain is recovering from knee surgery in the offseason.

Cowboys don't pick up fifth-year option on CB Morris Claiborne
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The Cowboys announced they will not pick up the fifth-year option on cornerback Morris Claiborne, making him a free agent after this season, per ProFootballTalk.com. 

Claiborne is coming off a rough season in which he struggled to recover from a torn patellar tendon, as he only appeared in four games. He also missed six games last year because of a hamstring issue. 

If the Cowboys had picked up the option, they would have been on the hook for more than $11 million in 2016.

Report: Cowboys won't pick up option on Morris Claiborne
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Cowboys don't plan to pick up the option on defensive back Morris Claiborne's rookie contract, according to a report from the Dallas Morning News, citing a source.

Claiborne was the Cowboys' first-round pick in the 2012 draft. The team has until Sunday to decide whether to pick up the fifth-year option to keep Claiborne with the team through 2016. 

The source said that Claiborne was "not a priority" for the team, as it prepares for the 2015 NFL Draft. 

Claiborne will make $2.6 million this year, in the final season of his four-year rookie contract.

Jerry Jones: Claiborne's situation 'problematic' for Cowboys
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is sounding less and less optimistic cornerback Morris Claiborne will be back for training camp in 2015.

"Mo has created a problematic situation for us," Jones said to the Dallas Morning News. "Mo didn’t create it, but his circumstances are problematic for us as we approach what we’re doing in the off-season at that position."

Claiborne suffered a torn patellar tendon in his left knee last September and the team is "hopeful" he will be ready for training camp.

Claiborne has played just 29 games of a possible 48 in his three-year career, totaling 88 tackles with three interceptions.
