Draft Scout Doug Free News
03/07/15 - RT Doug Free, scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent March 10, re-signed with the Cowboys Saturday (March 7). Free signed a three-year contract worth a reported $15 million with $6 million guaranteed.
The agreement, reached three days before the start of free agency, means all five of Dallas' starting offensive linemen will be back with the team in 2015.
Free, 31, has been a full-time starter since 2010. He started at left tackle at 2010 and 2011 before moving to right tackle in 2012. He was limited to 11 games last season due to a left ankle injury, which required offseason surgery.
03/04/15 - RT Doug Free has a better shot of returning than Jermey Parnell because he may be a cheaper option, though Free should get interest on the market. He is a proven starter.
01/07/15 - RT Doug Free (ankle) did not practice Wednesday and could miss his fourth straight game dating back to the regular season.
01/03/15 - T Doug Free (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions.
12/31/14 - RT Doug Free has missed the last two games with a sprained ankle and missed practice again on Wednesday. His ankle has improved and there is a chance he could be ready by Sunday. However, Jermey Parnell has played well in his absence and may keep the starting job.
"We're not going to put him in there before he's ready to play," Garrett said. "Jermey's played very well for us. He's stepped in and he's tough and he's done a good job as a run blocker, done a good job in protection. He blocked (Ryan Kerrigan) a lot in the game the other day. And they put him over there. Really thought he held up well. He's really improved as a player, but obviously we love Doug. Doug's done a really good job for us. Doug's impact on the other guys around him is significant. First question is, let's get Doug healthy and then we'll make that decision."
