Doug Free’s days as a Cowboys coming to a end?


 
Doug Free
 
CBS/NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports  it “looks like the end” for right tackle Doug Free with the Cowboys.
 
Free is owed seven million dollars in base salary and will count $11.2 million against the cap.
 
Doug Free started all 16 games for the Dallas Cowboys in 2012, but he and third year pro Jeremy Parnell rotated down the stretch. Free graded out near the bottom of Pro Football Focus’ final 2012 offensive tackle rankings. 
 
While releasing Free would clear his salary off Dallas’ books, the move would not provide significant 2013 cap relief.
 
 
    Doug Free’s contract break down:
  • Contract: 4 years/32 million
  • Signing Bonus: 10,300,000
  • Average Salary: 8,000,000
  • Guaranteed: 17,000,000
The Dallas Cowboys are currently 18.2 million dollars over the 2013 projected salary cap.

Cowboys Guards Bernadeau and Nate Livings practice today


 

Well #CowboysNation received some good news as OG Mackenzy Bernadeau and OG Nate Livings was at practice today. The Cowboys are practicing with the San Diego Chargers Monday and Tuesday as they prepare for the St.Louis Rams Saturday at Cowboys Stadium.

Both hampered with injuries Bernadeau (hip and knee), Livings (hamstring) during the off-season and missed the Cowboys first two preseason games.

Here is what Livings had to say about his return….

“I felt synced in,” Livings said. “You know how you sync your phone to your computer? I felt like we were in sync. We’ve got a ways to go, but it’s all about getting better every day. That’s what I try to do when I’m on the field. You’re either getting better or getting worse. Today I felt I got better.”

Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports Livings took most of the first-team work against the Chargers, but veteran Derrick Dockery also got some work as the athletic training staff wanted to ease Livings back into his return.
