by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (3/13/14) The Cowboys agreed to terms on a contract with free-agent linebacker Will Herring Thursday, though terms of the deal are not yet known. Herring appeared in all 16 of the Saints' games last season, recording 13 tackles and one interception.
The report says Claiborne has been a major disappointment in his two seasons after being selected at No. 6 overall in the NFL Draft. Since then, Claiborne has just two interceptions, 14 pass breakups and 17 weeks spent on the injury report.
He has fallen behind Orlando Scandrick as the third corner, and the report says the Cowboys should consider trading Claiborne for a third-round pick.
Suggs deal could impact DeMarcus Ware, Cowboys
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (2/18/14) The contract extension Terrell Suggs signed with the Ravens could be beneficial to the Cowboys and DeMarcus Ware, reports ESPN.
The Ravens and Suggs agreed on a contract extension that will significantly lower his $12.8 million salary-cap figure. He was set to make a $7.8 million base salary in the final year of his deal.
Ware is set to make a $12.25 million base salary and count $16.003 million against the cap. He is technically signed through 2017, but the final two years of the contract will void so he will be a free agent after the 2015 season.
The report says the extension the Ravens gave Suggs could serve as something of a blueprint for the Cowboys. Needing salary-cap space, the Cowboys cannot have Ware count $16 million against the cap.
Sean Lee on recovery: 'Pretty much there'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (2/10/14) Cowboys middle linebacker Sean Lee said his neck has improved dramatically since a torn ligament forced him to miss the final three games last season. But he has not been medically cleared yet.
"I'm working all the neck exercises," Lee said, via ESPN.com. "I think it was just having time to heal, allowing that ligament to heal and it takes a certain amount of time. I think we're on the path to where it's pretty much there."
Lee did not need surgery, which he called "a positive." He expects to be ready for the offseason program, which starts April 21.
