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.
