Forget free agency, the Dallas Cowboys have locked up former Boise State defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence by using the franchise tag. The tag is pricey, 17.5 million a season! The move was expected as last week Dallas Cowboys owner Charlie Jones told the media he would not let Lawrence be anything but a Cowboy next year. The key now is to see if the two sides can come together and keep Lawrence beyond the 2018 season. Lawrence, who left Boise State after his junior season for the NFL Draft was a first round pick but it took him three seasons to break out. In 2017 Lawrence had 14.5 sacks. The Cowboys will have a little more than four months to agree to a multi-year deal with the defensive end
