Draft Scout *Tyron Smith News
07/30/14 - T Tyron Smith was the first ever pick of the Jason Garrett era when the Cowboys tabbed him ninth overall in the 2011 draft. It proved to be a quality investment that the Cowboys will lean on for years to come. Smith, who doesn't turn 23 until December, is coming off his first Pro Bowl season where he allowed just one sack in 2013.
The Cowboys gave him an eight-year contract extension, worth $97.6 million, making him the league's highest paid offensive tackle with an average of $12.2 million a year.
Add in the final two years of his rookie deal and Smith's package is worth $109.7 million, including a $10 million signing bonus and $40 million in guaranteed money.
"We talk about building a program and building a football team and he was the first player that we took three years ago in that draft," Garrett said. "He's just been everything we've wanted to build this program and this team around. His work ethic is fantastic. His mental and physical toughness are as good as I've been around. He just continues to grow and develop as a player. Technically, he's getting better. He's getting bigger and stronger. And he's just tough, competitive. He's what you want on your football team at a really, really important position."
He has started 47 of 48 games since his rookie season.
"After careful consideration, I decided this long-term deal was exactly what I wanted," Smith said in a statement. "Over the past three years, the Cowboys organization and Jones family have helped me through trying times and I felt this was my opportunity to return the gratitude. I am beyond grateful for the Cowboys staff, my teammates, and the fans, and wanted to ensure I was locked in as a "Cowboy for Life". I want to thank everyone for their support and look forward to having a star on my helmet for the remainder of my career."
05/01/14 - T Tyron Smith had the fifth-year option of his contract exercised by the Cowboys.
As part of the new collective bargaining agreement, Smith, the No. 9 pick in the 2011 draft, will earn $10.039 million next season. As a top-10 pick, Smith will earn the average salary of the top 10 players at his position.
The 6-foot-5, 318-pound Smith has started every game he has played since joining the Cowboys, missing one game in 2012 because of an ankle injury. He moved to left tackle in 2012 after starting at right tackle as a rookie.
