Report: Cowboys decline team option on defensive tackle Henry Melton

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/14/15) The Cowboys are reportedly expected to decline the three-year option on defensive tackle Henry Melton, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The move will make Melton a free agent for the second consecutive offseason and would have made $9 million if the Cowboys had picked it up.

Melton played a full season in Dallas after missing 13 games in 2013 with a torn ACL. He totaled 11 tackles for the Cowboys including five sacks and four passes defended.

Cowboys not expected to pick up DT Henry Melton's option

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/15) The Cowboys aren't likely to pick up the three-year option on defensive tackle Henry Melton, reports the Dallas Morning News. It would average $8 million and cost the team $9 million in guaranteed money in 2015.

Coming off a torn ACL he suffered in 2013, Melton played in every game this season, starting 15, and finished with 15 tackles and five sacks. The team could seek to bring back Melton for less than what the option would cost.

"As he went through the season, he evolved and improved," owner Jerry Jones told the paper. "He had a setback or two that I would call nicks, probably impacted his overall steady progression to back to where he was that year in Chicago (2012) before he got hurt. But in general, I did see progress with how he rehabbed from his injury. I know that we’re eons better off today relative to rehabbing his injury than he was when we started training camp.”

Melton's season ends with 15 total tackles including five sacks for Dallas.
