Cowboys offer top tender contract to LT Doug Free

IRVING, Texas (AP)

The Dallas Cowboys moved to keep starting left tackle Doug Free by offering him the highest contract tender offer, worth about $3.5 million.

The offer means that if Free signs an offer sheet with another team, the Cowboys have a chance to match it. If not, the team would owe the Cowboys a first- and third-round draft pick.

Defensive ends Stephen Bowen and Jason Hatcher received tenders worth about $1.9 million. Teams would owe the Cowboys a second-round pick if they lure away either player.

Safety Alan Ball received the original draft choice tender of about $1.2 million; he was a seventh-rounder.

Tenders were not offered to receiver Sam Hurd, linebacker Leon Williams and quarterback Chris Greisen.
