According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys will pick up the fifth-year option of left tackle Tyron Smith’s contract.
The Dallas Cowboys have exercised the fifth-year option on Tyron Smith’s contract, according to a source, keeping the 2011 first-round pick with the team at least through 2015.
The option will pay Smith more than $10 million and is presently guaranteed for injury, but it does not preclude the Cowboys and Smith working out a multi-year deal before it is fully guaranteed by the first day of the league year in 2015.
Smith has been great at left tackle for the Cowboys. They need to make sure he never plays for another NFL team.
