Romo, Tony (QB)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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.
Costa, Phil (C)
The Dallas Cowboys have signed Costa to a two-year contract, pulling off another deal to save salary cap space.
Costa's agent, George Mavrikes, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Costa's $2.7 million, two-year deal includes a $450,000 signing bonus for $950,000 guaranteed this season. Costa played in only three games last season, missing most of training camp with a back issue that he re-aggravated in the season opener. He played two games in October before needing season-ending ankle surgery.
Ladouceur, L.P. (LB)
The Cowboys also re-signed Ladouceur to a five-year contract.
The long snapper has been with Dallas since the middle of the 2005 season. He's handled snaps on 562 punts, 245 field goals and 341 extra points.
Carr, Brandon (CB)
The Dallas Cowboys have reworked the contracts of five starters, including Carr, to save salary cap space.
Dallas signed Carr as a free agent last year, and Thursday's moves turn nearly all of the $14.3 million he was due in salary into a signing bonus. Carr will count $3.5 million against this year's cap.
Cook, Ryan (C)
The Dallas Cowboys have reworked the contracts of five starters, including Cook, to save salary cap space.
By restructuring the deals of Cook and four others, the Cowboys wiped out the $20 million they were projected to be over the cap this year.
Austin, Miles (WR)
The Dallas Cowboys have reworked the contracts of five starters, including Austin, to save salary cap space.
Austin's deal will save $4 million for the 'Boys.
