Cowboys signed LT Tyron Smith to an eight-year, $98 million extension.
Smith is now set to make $109 million over the next ten years, making him the second highest paid tackle in the league. Still only 23, Smith has already established himself as one of the preeminent tackles, and will anchor a Dallas offensive line that could be the best in the NFL this season. The Cowboys will now turn their attention to locking up Dez Bryant, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Jul 30 - 2:15 PM

ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys want to extend LT Tyron Smith "as soon as they can."

Dez Bryant's contract will take precedence, but Smith remains a candidate for an extension prior to camp. The Cowboys picked up Smith's fifth-year option in April, so he's under team control the next two seasons. Smith was a second-team All-Pro in 2013 and is expected to be seeking in excess of $11 million annually.

ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys could sign LT Tyron Smith to a contract extension prior to training camp.

Smith is under contract for the next two years at $12.1 million after the Cowboys exercised his 2015 option. He's coming off a Pro Bowl season and graded out as a top-five left tackle by Pro Football Focus. Still only 23, Smith could target a contract in the range of Joe Thomas' seven-year, $44 million guaranteed deal.

Cowboys exercised LT Tyron Smith's team option for 2015.

Going by the 2014 transition-tag numbers, Smith will be due $10.039 million in 2015. He's making $2.079 million this season. The No. 9 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Smith has missed one game in three years, and emerged as a Pro-Bowl talent on Tony Romo's blindside. Still only 23, he'll get locked up long-term sooner rather than later.

ESPN Dallas believes Cowboys LT Tyron Smith could target Joe Thomas money on a long-term extension.

Smith is entering the final year of his rookie deal, though the Cowboys hold a fifth-year option for 2015 that they'll likely exercise this spring. But a more lucrative deal should be coming Smith's way in the very near future. He just turned 23 in December; Smith was 20 when the Cowboys took him with the ninth pick in the 2011 draft. Thomas inked a seven-year, $84 million deal that included $44 million guaranteed with the Browns as a 26-year-old back in 2011. Smith is just as good, grading out as a top-two right tackle in 2011 and top-five left tackle last season at Pro Football Focus. The Cowboys hit a home run with Smith.

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith has revealed he dealt with near constant harassment from his family about money last season.

Smith was forced to file a protective order against his parents, and called the police on two of his sisters after they showed up at his house unannounced to "harass and torment" him "in the pursuit of collecting financial gain." It had to be a draining distraction for a player making the transition to the blindside, but the 22-year-old Smith still graded out positively in Pro Football Focus' ratings. Smith is a candidate to take a big step forward this season.

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith plans to bulk up to 315 pounds this season after playing closer to 305 in 2012.

"I just want to be a better run-blocker and be stronger and more physical," Smith said. "There were times last year where I felt like I was too fast and I was a little off-balanced. I just basically want to add a little weight and stay there, be fast and strong at the same time." Smith had a checkered first year on the blindside, but his play improved down the stretch. Still only 22 years old, Smith has ample room for improvement, and bulking up isn't a bad start.

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith sustained a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Owner/GM Jerry Jones said it's not as bad as a high-ankle sprain can be, but we'd still consider Smith very unlikely to play on Thanksgiving. It's a major concern for the Cowboys, who were already playing without C Ryan Cook (knee). They gave up seven sacks and allowed 10 hits on Tony Romo Sunday. Journeyman Jeremy Parnell is Smith's backup.

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith exited Sunday's Week 11 game with a first-half ankle injury.

Smith is questionable to return, and Dallas' offense is running in place with Jermey Pernell on Tony Romo's blind side.

Cowboys OL coach Bill Callahan is encouraged by Tyron Smith's smooth transition to left tackle.

Callahan, who has coached NFL offensive linemen for over a decade, said he's "never had anyone like" Smith. "He is just very strong, very lean, very explosive," Callahan said, "and he can carry those traits over to the left side because of his athleticism."

Coach Jason Garrett confirmed that Tyron Smith will flip to left tackle when offseason workouts begin.

Garrett left the door open for a reversal, but this move is a no-brainer. Smith is ultra athletic with the quick feet to fend off the game's best pass rushers while Doug Free struggled to protect Tony Romo's blindside last season.

Recently retired Cowboys offensive line coach Hudson Houck said he sees Tyron Smith as the long-term answer at left tackle.

After a wildly impressive rookie campaign at right tackle, Houck compared Smith to Cowboys legend Larry Allen. He just turned 21 years old last month and has a ton of room to grow. Doug Free, who manned the left tackle spot this season, is a more natural right tackle.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says RT Tyron Smith has been his best rookie this season.

Smith, the No. 9 overall pick in the draft, has started all 15 games and has been exceptional in pass protection. Jones confirmed he could see Smith moving to left tackle next season, thus kicking Doug Free back over to his natural right side spot.

Cowboys RT Tyron Smith went down with an undisclosed injury in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against the Buccaneers.

Smith was able to walk off the field on his own power, but was evaluated by team doctors on the sideline and received medical attention to the neck and head area. Check back Monday for an update on his status.

Beat reporter Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News expects Tyron Smith to move to left tackle next season.

Smith projects as the Cowboys left tackle of the future and is second overall in pass blocking metrics, according to Pro Football Focus. His transition would allow for current starter Doug Free to play at his more natural right tackle position.
