Dallas-The Dallas Cowboys and DeMarcus Lawrence have agreed on a five- year $105 M with $65 M guaranteed. If they don't ink him to a new contract, it should be regarded as a massive failure.

Like Lawrence, Clark had a franchise tag placed upon him by his team, and, like Lawrence, he is searching for a new contract.

No matter what the price tag is, signing DeMarcus Lawrence long-term in a must for the Dallas Cowboys. He did not have a sack his rookie season, but has 34 the last four years, including 14.5 in 2017 and 10.5 last season. He will still play under the franchise tag this year if they don't reach an agreement, but Lawrence has made clear he prefers a long-term deal.

As for the 26-year old DeMarcus Lawrence, he must now go about the business of proving he is worthy of such a monster contract. In his career, he is fourth in the National Football League in sacks (25), tied for eighth in tackles for loss (29), tied for seventh in QB hits (49) and tied for sixth in forced fumbles (six).

Now, all the primary components of that pass rush are back - in addition to Quinn, who has 69 career sacks to his name. In 2015, he led the Cowboys with eight sacks. The second surgery, after the 2016 season, corrected the disk issue, and he has not missed a game since. This deal fits into the Cowboys' desire to keep their young players, as they have done for years, most recently with offensive linemen Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin.

Cooper, Prescott and Jones are signed through 2019, and Elliott can be under contract through 2020, thanks to the fifth-year option the team will exercise later this spring. Now that it's ready to roll and Lawrence will be with the Cowboys for the long term, though, it's time to evaluate the signing by giving it a grade.
