Cowboys deal with Henry Melton for one guaranteed season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

If Melton makes it through the year and is still on the Cowboys' roster by the first say of the league year in 2015, an extension will kick in worth an average of $8 million over three seasons, including $9 million guaranteed in the first year.

Melton had 13 sacks in 2011 and 2012 combined, and likely would have been looking at a much larger deal had he not suffered the injury.

Henry Melton's next visit: Seattle


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/14/2014) In what might raise a few eyebrows, free agent defensive tackle Henry Melton will visit the Seahawks on Friday. ESPN revealed the news just days after Melton visited the Vikings. 

So why the raised eyebrows? This might turn into the Seahawks stumbling into signing an excellent player coming off of a torn ACL. They've taken on such projects in the past, getting veterans coming off an injury to sign for a nominal amount and then thriving with them. The Seahawks have lost a number of defensive linemen this offseason, notably Red Bryant. Melton could help replace those who have signed elsewhere. 

Melton played in just three games last year before getting hurt. He racked up six sacks in 2012 and seven in 2011. He's entering his sixth NFL season.
