Romo, Tony (QB)

Posted March 30, 2013 @ 1:19 a.m.
Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have agreed on a six-year contract extension worth $108 million, with about half of it guaranteed. The agreement was reported on the team's website Friday. The deal will lower Romo's salary cap number of $16.8 million for 2013, giving the team more room to sign free agents and draft picks.
Romo, who turns 33 next month and was entering the final year of his contract, gets $55 million guaranteed and could be with Dallas through 2019. Super Bowl winner Joe Flacco got $52 million guaranteed in the six-year, $120.6 million contract he signed with Baltimore earlier this month. Romo is the franchise leader in touchdown passes but has just one playoff win in six full seasons as the starter.

Durant, Justin (LB)

Posted March 27, 2013 @ 3:07 p.m.
The Dallas Cowboys have signed Durant to a free-agent contract.
Durant started 14 games and had 103 tackles last season for Detroit, where he played the last two years after starting his career with four seasons in Jacksonville.

Allen, Will (S)

Posted March 27, 2013 @ 2:29 p.m.
The Dallas Cowboys have signed Allen.
Allen spent the last three seasons in Pittsburgh after six in Tampa Bay. He has started 33 of his 130 NFL games with 238 tackles, four interceptions and 11 pass breakups.

Spencer, Anthony (LB)

Posted March 12, 2013 @ 3:39 p.m.
Spencer has signed a $10.6 million one-year tender, securing his return to the Cowboys while he seeks a long-term deal.
Cowboys put the franchise tag on Spencer for the second straight year, guaranteeing him a raise from the $8.8 million he made as the team's leading tackler in 2012. Spencer is moving to defensive end with Dallas' switch to the 4-3 defense. The 29-year-old Spencer was the biggest question for Dallas in free agency, which opened Tuesday. The six-year pro, who had a career-best 11 sacks last season, was set to become an unrestricted free agent.

Spencer, Anthony (LB)

Posted March 04, 2013 @ 1:47 p.m.
The Dallas Cowboys are putting the franchise tag on Spencer for the second consecutive season.
Spencer's agent, Jordan Woy, wrote in a tweet Monday that the Cowboys and their sack leader from 2012 would work on a long-term contract. Spencer had a career-high 11 sacks last season.
