Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (back) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

The Cowboys have restructured LT Tyron Smith's contract.

$9 million of Smith's $10 million salary has been converted to a signing bonus, clearing up $7.2 million in space. The move adds $1.8 million to Smith's cap number from 2017-22. It's the classic kicking the can down the road. Smith agreed to something similar last offseason. Still only 25, Smith is one of the league's very best players.

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith agreed to restructure his contract, converting $10 million of his 2015 base salary into a "signing" bonus.

Since Smith is signed through 2023, it saves the Cowboys over $8 million against the salary cap. Smith graded out as a top-six left tackle at Pro Football Focus last season, excelling both as a run blocker and pass protector.

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (ankle) will try to practice Thursday.

Coach Jason Garrett confirmed that tests on Smith's ankle came back relatively clean. It puts him on track to play in Sunday's NFC East battle with the Giants and Jason Pierre-Paul.

Tests revealed that Cowboys LT Tyron Smith has avoided a high ankle sprain.

Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Smith "could play" in Week 7 against the Giants. It sounds like he most likely will. Through six games, Smith has been charged with just one sack allowed by Pro Football Focus. The Cowboys can't afford to lose him after RT Doug Free suffered a 3-4 week foot injury in Week 6.
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 11:30:00 PM

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith hurt his ankle in Week 6 and headed for an MRI on Wednesday.

Smith was actually the first offensive lineman to win Player of the Week honors since Brian Waters in 2004 thanks to his play against the Seahawks in Seattle this past week. He tried to do individual drills Wednesday, but the ankle bothered him and he was sent off for tests. Smith may be the best left tackle in football.

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.
Wed, Jul 30, 2014 02:15:00 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.

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.
